Apparently deer can’t read the “Sandy Hook Closed” sign and been spotted meandering around Sandy Hook enjoying the solitude.

Other spotted visitors include some harbor seals.

If you want to help Sandy Hook, the  park volunteer coordinator is collecting contact information for those offering to help. Please email your name and contact info (and what unit or site in the park you want to volunteer at i.e. Sandy Hook) to Keith will contact you when they have something scheduled in that area.


  1. yes for a long time, they just hide really well. last year i saw one in the road to the nude beach, and if you look carefully you can find deer tracks in most of the sand.
