Canaveral National Seashore has suspended the issuance of both Backcountry Hiking and Backcountry Camping permits in preparation for Hurricane Isaac. While at this time the storm is not predicted to directly hit the Seashore area, the staff must prepare for the probability of high winds and heavy rains. The safety of visitors and staff remain the Seashore's top concern and as soon as it is safe to do so, all activities will resume.
