Park closures status   

All park areas have reopened after the high lake levels after Hurricane Florence.  Several low-lying areas are still partially flooded however, including the parts of the swim beaches and areas close to the shoreline.  Park visitors entering the water should take care as unusual underwater drop-offs may still exist.

Sandling Beach is closed for the winter season as normal.  It will reopen April 1, 2019.
