Cape Point Temporarily Closes ORV Beach Access

National Park Service Outer Banks Group Deputy Superintendent Mark Dowdle announced today the temporary off-road vehicle (ORV) access closure of the Cape Point area in accordance with the requirements of the ORV Management Plan for Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

On April 6, 2015, approximately 0.6 – 0.7 of a mile south of Ramp 44 adjacent to the ocean shoreline, National Park Service staff observed American Oystercatcher breeding behavior in an area south of what is commonly known as “the bypass.”  

The required buffer of 150-meters to the east resulted in the closure to vehicles. 

There is currently ORV access for 0.5 of a mile south of Ramp 44. 

There is no ORV access to the tip of Cape Point.
