Dump station has reopened   

The park's campground dump station is open again for use after the removal of a high hanging limb overhead that had resulted in its closure since the passage of Hurricane Florence. Registered overnight campers may use the dump station for free; all others must pay the $20 dump fee at the park's marina store.

Tree removal - please exercise caution   

Professional tree crews have begun the removal of hanging limbs and hazardous leaning trees from the park's picnic area and campground. These hazards are the result of Hurricane Florence and were deemed too dangerous and technical to be handled by park staff. Please be cautious around these areas where tree crews are working, and prepare for short delays as debris removal is done along park roadways.
