Canaveral National Seashore Prepares for Hurricane Irma
Canaveral National Seashore will close the park and beaches within our boundary beginning Thursday, September 7, in preparation for hurricane Irma. With the safety of employees and visitors being NPS' top priority, backcountry camping reservations are also terminated until further notice. Please observe all closures and do not enter through closed gates, once the seashore is closed there will be limited emergency services available. The seashore will be assessed by an Incident Command Team before it is reopened to the public after the storm has passed.
