Obx beach closings?????

Anyone know if you can still drive on the beaches in the outer banks, I heard a rumor a lot of them had been closed due to bird and turtle habitats. I am going there in 2 weeks and taking the Jeep and was wondering. If anyone knows anything let me know. Also are there any trails around there to wheel? Thanks everyone

You can still drive in Carova on the beach and in the roads behind the dunes. We go every year. Good mudholes behind the dunes too. Just stay on the roads, respect the locals and stay very clear of the horses. Read the beach driving rules before going out there...cops patrol regularly. Air down your tires 1 mile down the beach so you don't clog up the beach entrance. Bring a tow strap too.....I pulled a Range Rover out and made $40 LOL.

The southern Outer Banks (Hatteras) has limited beach driving due to the turtle nesting. Carova is much less crowded than Hatteras so I highly recommend it.

Let me know if you have any Q's about driving out there...have fun.

Thought I'd share some pics of last year's trip to Carova. No Jeeps though. My YJ was still broken down at the time. That's my LR Discovery that I recently sold. Loved driving it....hated spending $ on the damn thing.
Carova is awesome...hope it stays exactly as it is. There is a block on any further development out there, and homeowners are constantly fighting to keep it as is, and open to vehicles. It's very important to drive responsibly out there. The first year or two we were idiots, but have learned to respect exactly how great it is to have a place like that.

Funny story.....We had that EXACT LR and sold it because it kept having minor issues that cost WAY too much money to fix!!!! Could probably put a new engine in my LJ for the cost of a light switch for that thing. It was a money pit!!!! But looks nice, we will be up there for a week maybe I'll see ya out there. I'll be driving this........

Wow, love your LJ!
Yes, my beloved DiscoII and I had a love/hate relationship!
I wish I could go out to OBX this year....not going to happen unfortunately. Next year I'll be ready though.

Have fun, go fishing and drink one for me!

Got back yesterday, for some reason I am having trouble uploading pictures, When I can work it out I will. Had a blast, I was the only one at the house with four wheel drive so I was the shuttle to see the horses. 9 Adults, 6 children under 10, 4 dogs, but was more than happy to do it. Hadn't had an entire family vacation in almost 10 years so it was amazing. Got some to download, but only the ones of the horses

Nice! Damn I miss that place.

Maybe your pics are too big to upload. I take it you were staying in Corolla or Duck, then shuttling out to Carova?
