The first national seashore in the country, Cape Hatteras National Seashore, extends from south Nags Head to Ocracoke Inlet and includes Hatteras Island (Dare County) and Ocracoke Island (Hyde County) in its 75 mile, 30,000 acre entirety.
Outside of the park boundries, but surrounded by or on the edges of the National Seashore are Hatteras State Park, the Oregon Inlet fishing center, the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, and the towns of Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Buxton, Frisco, Hatteras and Ocracoke.
There are actually 3 visitor's centers for the Hatteras National Seashore - Bodie Island, Hatteras Island, and Ocracoke. These are at the three lighthouses that are in the National Seashore area.
The administrative part of the park is in Manteo, which is on Roanoke Island outside of the park.
