This overnight stay and meeting facility will welcome everyone and improve public access to the park’s beaches, trails, freshwater ecosystems and other natural resources, as well as serve as a model of resilient, environmentally friendly coastal development.

The reconstruction will occur within a smaller site than the original lodge (destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004), which had been on the site since the 1970s.
