Anyone who wants to park at the beach at Sandy Hook National Park will now have to pay.
The booths at the entrance are staffed and have resumed taking beach access fees. Since reopening Memorial Day weekend, the park was free. But it will now cost $15 a carload or $75 for a season pass.
Just about everything, except the beaches and paths, are closed, and there is a long list of restrictions remaining in place:
No concession stands are open, no barbecuing, the sports fields and courts are closed; visitor center, ranger stations, and the lighthouse are also closed. The archery center is closed as well, as are playgrounds and camping areas. 
Fishing permits for 2019 will still be honored until further notice. Lifeguards are on duty daily from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Bathroom facilities are open.
