Cape Lookout National Seashore

Cape Lookout National Seashore

From birding, to camping, to fishing, to learning about the rich history of Cape Lookout Light Station -- there is something for everyone. Take a boat trip three miles off-shore to the islands of Cape Lookout National Seashore. Here visitors can enjoy remote beaches, watch wild horses and other wildlife, or visit one of the historic districts. Be sure to bring a picnic lunch for the day. Going camping takes a little more planning.

We hope you enjoy our work.
