The causeway (entrance road with water on both sides) at Huntington Beach State Park, is undergoing repairs. Damage from past hurricanes and storms have caused erosion on the earthen dam which separates the marsh from the brackish impoundment, undermining the concrete sidewalks and asphalt roadway. Along with the repairs, we will be repaving the causeway and putting up new guardrails. Please know there will be delays in traffic while construction is underway. Access to the causeway by pedestrians may also be limited. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work to secure and enhance this popular entrance and wildlife watching area.

Due to increasing demand and limited parking, temporary park closures have become frequent on weekends and holidays from May through September. Parking is first-come, first-serve and is limited. Visitors are strongly encouraged to arrive outside peak hours (10 am- 2 pm). Park visitors are also encouraged to check with park staff on current parking availability prior to departing if they plan to return, as they could be turned away due to a park closure. For more information on park closures call 843-237-4440.
