However, if you have a camping reservation in sites 1-61, you will be allowed access to the park and campsites.

You can still access any part of Freeman Park on foot.

Assessments will be made regularly by public safety staff to determine if or when the park will re-open to vehicular traffic.

While plans are to open the park daily at 8 a.m. to annual permit holders, Carolina Beach anticipates more closures due to the busy holiday weekend.

Updates will be posted to the town’s website and Facebook.
