One of few remaining undeveloped areas along the Atlantic coast, False Cape offers a chance to experience nature in a one-of-a kind setting. A huge migratory bird population and a variety of wildlife, plants and trees make the park an outdoor classroom. The park is accessible only by foot, bicycle, beach transporter, tram or boat. Tram transportation through Back Bay Wildlife Refuge is available April through October. Call for tram reservations. Between Nov. 1 and March 31, access to the park is restricted to the beach or via the park’s beach transporter, the Terra-Gator. Call for Terra Gator reservations. Tram or Terra Gator transportation is not available to campers.

Location: Southeast of Virginia Beach, 5 miles south of Sandbridge. No vehicular access.
