Park Service launches new ORV information brochure with partners

In partnership with the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association (NCBBA), the Outer Banks Preservation Association (OBPA) and the Cape Hatteras Anglers Club, the National Park Service has completed and is distributing a new off-road vehicle (ORV) brochure for the visiting public.

The new and improved brochure and map will provide visitors with a better understanding of off-road vehicle regulations and tips for beach driving. 

“This cooperative effort with key ORV groups and others has enabled the National Park Service to make available to our visiting public a much more informative and colorful brochure,” said Cape Hatteras National Seashore superintendent Mike Murray. “We greatly appreciate the assistance of all involved.” 

Jim Keene, president of NCBBA, also emphasized the benefits of everyone working together.

“Many thanks to Hatteras Realty,” he said, “for their financial support in artistic design and development of the brochure, to the National Park Service and Eastern National for providing the partial funding to print, distribute and the oversight review of the document, and for assistance from fellow off-road vehicle groups, such as the Outer Banks Preservation Association and the Cape Hatteras Anglers Club in the creation of the new and informative brochure.”

A copy of the brochure and current off-road vehicle information for the national seashore can be found at or  Visitors may also obtain copies of the new brochure at any of the national park visitor centers and the four Outer Banks Visitor Bureau visitor centers: Aycock Brown in Kitty Hawk, OBVB Roanoke Island, Whalebone Junction, and the U.S. Weather Station in Hatteras village.
