Who knew that a new bathroom could be so exciting? But we are excited! Construction on the brand new Hooker Falls Access Area bathroom started on Monday, April 16th and is expected to be completed by mid-August. (see press release from NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services here).

Back in 2016 Friends of DuPont Forest pledged $50,000 for the sorely needed bathrooms and we are thrilled to have honored that pledge this week.

PLEASE BE ADVISED
During the construction, the upper lot at Hooker Falls will be closed. As we move into the busy season, here are some things to keep in mind.

  • Do not park on the pavement or near “No Parking” signs.
  • Large vehicles will not be allowed to park in the Hooker Falls Access Area.
  • Avoid peak times to visit DuPont and note that other access areas are also likely to have limited parking spaces.
  • Do not park over the white lines of public highways.
  • Tell your friends and visitors.
