    Gulf Islands National Seashore Reopens Following Hurricane Ian

    GULF BREEZE, Fla. –Gulf Islands National Seashore will reopen the Perdido Key Area (Johnson Beach), Opal Beach, and Okaloosa Area in Florida beginning at noon on Sept. 29.
    The Fort Pickens Area including the Fort Pickens Campground will reopen at 7 a.m. Friday, Sept. 30.  

    “Fortunately Gulf Islands National Seashore did not sustain damages due to Hurricane Ian,” said Superintendent Darrell Echols. “The Fort Pickens Area did have a substantial amount of sand on the roads and will require time to clean up. Our priority is to ensure the safest environment possible for park visitors and staff.”

    For more information, please follow the park’s social media accounts and website.
