    The park auditorium is undergoing major rehabilitation and can only accommodate 15 persons watching the film at once. We play it every half hour, or on an as needed basis. Completion date; spring 2015. Everything else is open, as usual, at the park.

Getting Around

Begin your visit to the park with a stop at the information desk located in the Visitor Center. The staff will collect entrance fees and provide an orientation to the site's attractions and facilities. The main historic points of interest may be reached via gravel walkways.
