South Jetty Beach Day Use

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

This popular day use area offers lots to do. These twelve parking areas start out with two sand access lots for off highway vehicles; South Jetty Staging and Goose Pasture Staging.

There are also six lots providing excellent access to the beach. Two other parking areas are open viewpoints of wetlands for great wildlife observation.

Visitors will also find the crab dock parking area that provides opportunities to enjoy a day of crabbing or fishing.

Near the jetty our final two lots mark the location of the 1979 beaching of 41 sperm whales. Adventure, education, solitude or relaxation, all this and more can be found at the South Jetty.
