    Here in Rhode Island they shut down some of the beaches a few months annually to protect the nesting areas of Piping Plovers which are uncommon here. It's an interesting concept except for the fact that the things are common almost everywhere else.

    Good luck!

    They want to shut them down for three solid years at minimum . Assateague Island in Maryland simply monitors the beach and restricts the nesting areas by detouring trucks around the nest it seems to work well . Everybody is happy the 4 wd guys and the birds . I hope they dont shut down hatteras beaches or I am gonna look for a new vacation spot whats gonna be the sense visiting the beaches of the outer banks if ya cant use them !

    In the past, you could drive on most of the beaches in North Florida. Now, pretty much everything north of Daytona is off limits. Ya gotta park it and walk!

    It's beginning of April and I'm here in Corolla.... and there's plenty of beaches to drive on. My brother-in-law is out with his Xterra as I type.
    I don't think you'd have anything to worry about unless they close it within the next few months.

    The weather here now is crappy....rainy, windy, & in 40's...We're making due with lots of liquor & champagne and a hot tub!! ehehehehehee...

    I am not talking about Corrolla and Duck I am talking about Oregon Inlet , cape point and areas we love so much it'll be a shame to see em closed .This is America how can they possibly close those beaches to us it seems ridiculous to me the economy in that area isnt the greatest as it is and I think this is gonna hurt it even more ! I am going to be very dissappointed if the "tree huggers" get their way and so will some of the locals due to job loss because of less tourism !! which equals lack of money for the area ! I think they should open season on those dam piping plovers LOL

    would be more cost effective to maintain the beaches to help suppourt tourism in the area then it would to stop it all together and lose all that tourism!

    Where do you go? Only place I know that was recently closed to 4x4 traffic is Anastasia State Park.

    I still drive on the beach over by Crecent and Vilano all the time. Lots of good fishin on Vilano beach.

    Surely I hate seeing areas closed - but I totally and completely understand why they do it.

    If its only in certain areas - it sounds more like it could be a beach errosion issue and perhaps there's something about the terrain that has become unsafe to drive on. Or costs too much to maintain.

    You gotta remember - these areas are open 'to the public'. And that means - you're getting every John & Jane Doe driving on the beach without any respect for the beaches, the land, the dunes, etc. People doing stupid stuff, tearing up the sand, getting stuck, littering, etc. And that costs $$ to maintain and clean the beaches that these people are destroying. It's a damn shame....but true. I've seen enough irresponsibility with people on the trails, I can't imagine how people can be in a touristy environment.

    Afterall, if they didn't close the beaches to vehicles....someday, those same beaches won't even be nice to enjoy for a walk.

    Anastasia was the best. I believe my first camping trip ever was there many, many years ago.

    I live in St. Johns county so I'm close enough to all the drive on beaches. I will flip if they tried to close them.
