Welcome and good luck to 4 Plus 4 Wheel Drive fishing tournament April 28 and 29, kickoff meeting 7 am Fessenden Center.
Great news South Beach Parking Area is now open (Old Ramp 45). An
ORV permit is NOT required if the road and parking area is accessed
from the Cape Point campground. Visitors can drive around the
last loop until they see the sign P for Parking and turn right.
The road changes from asphalt to shell base. Follow that road and
stop at the stop sign posted at the intersection of Inside Road.
Go straight through the intersection to reach the parking area closer
to the beach. Just past the parking area there will be
bollards and a takedown gate signed for entry to Authorized Vehicles
only. Currently pedestrians can enter the area but please be
cognizant of signed resource protection areas nearby. ORV permit
users are able to freely turn onto South Beach Road to access the
parking area too.
The old Frisco pier was predominantly removed, however some pilings in
the water remain. Danger signs were posted on some of the pilings
warning people of the submerged hazards in the area, if recreating in
the ocean in the vicinity of the removed pier. The parking lot
will tentatively open after May 5. The rest of the pilings will
then be removed in September.
