Things To Know Before You Come

Planning your visit is easier when you know what to expect and the rules or regulations in effect in the area you plan to visit. Use the menu items here to help you plan a more enjoyable visit.

As a consequence of declining budgets, many things taken for granted in the past will be absent or at least altered. Visitors should check the closure/reduced services table or call one of our contact stations prior to visiting the park in order to make sure that they are not surprised and disappointed by finding their destination closed. Changes will be implemented as staffing levels allow during the first two weeks of March. All open facilities should be operational by March 15th.
