Visitor Information Main Line (Sheep Rock Unit)
June 2013 - Please note that our phone lines are not working reliably for some callers. While the cause of this intermittent issue is not know, there is a suspicion that it only impacts certain service providers and not others when calls are placed into rural areas. Callers report silence on the line or the phone rings without the auto attendant picking up. Unfortunately this is outside our control. If you cannot get through, please send an email using the link below and a ranger will gladly respond as soon as possible.
