The National Park Service this year will initiate an Off-Road Vehicle Educational Certificate program for ORV users who visit Cape Lookout National Seashore. The free ORV Educational Certificate identifies the top resource protection and safety measures that the park requires all ORV users adhere to while visiting North and South Core Banks.
The ORV Educational Certificate program begins the dialogue with each and every ORV user accessing the park and establishes a common understanding about what is necessary in order to protect the fundamental resource values of the national seashore. Every ORV user will need to obtain the free certificate.
The certificates are available from the vehicle ferry operators who provide transportation services for ORVs to the islands, online, or at the cabin camp offices. Vehicle owners will identify the vehicle going onto the island, which includes ATVs and UTVs, and then be given a decal from the cabin camp office which is to be affixed to the vehicle. The certificate and decal are good for the calendar year.
