Several people took time to respond to my question from last week. Thank you!
The rule is that you have to have a pass to park at West Point (the lighthouse). The only way to get a pass is to request one from the park office which opens at 8:30. If you want to do dawn birding, you have to walk in from a parking lot. If you show up at or after 8:30 you need to be 63 years old or older, or have a documented disability as to why you need the pass. Or, you need to have a person with a disability in your car. If there is no one in the office (as there was not last Saturday) you are out of luck -- no passes.
Some summer weekends there is a shuttle bus to the beach.
The park is more than 500 acres -- couldn't they spare a couple of them for more parking at the point?
