Due to record setting, heavy snow accumulation this winter Blackwoods Campground will remain in Winter Operation mode until May 1. The campground will be accessible for primitive camping, with portable toilets and water acquired by hand pump. Campers should check in with Dispatch at Park Headquarters to obtain a camping permit and be prepared to hike into the campground. In addition during this time there will be ongoing construction within the campground completing necessary repairs to the sewage system which will involve the blasting of ledge and the use of heavy equipment throughout the day.
In the winter, trails may be icy, wet, and slippery. Consider using shoe traction devices and trekking poles. Currently all carriage roads are open. Lakes may not be completely frozen — use caution. Seasonal trail closures are in effect.
