Our park museum will be closed April 15, 2013 till 2014. This will also affect our park orientation film screening; it will be limited to 8-10 visitors at a time. The rest of the park is open for visitation. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Pets are allowed in the park but must be on a leash at all times. Leashes must not be over six (6) feet long. In order to avert health risks and inappropriate contact between pets and visitors, pets are not admitted in park buildings. Guide dogs, assist dogs, and hearing ear dogs accompanying disabled persons are allowed in park buildings.
Pet owners are responsible for removing pet excrement from parking areas, picnic areas, trail surfaces, and other areas of heavy public use in the park to provide an enjoyable and safe visit for visitors.
For your pet's health and safety be aware that summer heat may be deadly to pets if left unattended in your vehicle.
