CH beach closures

by Tony
(upstate NY, not NYC)

I first heard about something like this in 1985 when we were approached by a young man who worked for the Dept of the Interior. The main subject of his interview concerned the beaches and associated Federal lands and properties. The topic that caught my interest most was his question regarding pay-as-you-go use fees. I haven't been down to OBX in quite a few years (child rearing) since then, and I don't know if anything like fees have been implemented, but doesn't that seem to be a fair solution?

Fees for access - okay with most
by: Anonymous

There will be fees to be paid (yearly and/or temporary) and that is not a problem for anyone (I don't think) according to those I have talked with. This has come to be accepted (if fees are reasonable).

But the fees are a small part of this issue. It is the access to the park which is the problem (or lack thereof). If there is no access, and you cannot get to and through areas of our Cape Hatteras National Park Recreation Area,then certainly none of us would want to pay a fee to drive up a ramp just to go a few feet and turn back around to highway 12 and go back out.

This has to be mitigated fairly (not unjustly).
