The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Wilmington District recently reopened USACE recreation areas that were closed due to COVID-19 precautions.  In Phase 2 of our operations, USACE opened beaches and shelters and group campsites to groups of less than 50 people.  Campsites may be reserved on site if they are available.  Playgrounds will remain closed until local guidance allows for them to open.  In order to continue this progression, we ask our visitors follow posted signage, as well as any local, state, federal guidelines.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Visitor and Environmental Education Centers remain closed.

At this time, Day Use fees are not being collected.  If you have an USACE Annual Day Use Pass or America the Beautiful Pass, that was purchased or valid during the period of April 1, 2019 through March 31, 2020 the expiration dates will be extended by 7 months.  See table on this page under Day Use Fees to determine your pass expiration dates.
