River Conversations

Sometimes the rules, regulations and standard descriptions of this website may seem a bit stodgy. After all, we are the government. If you want to have a more personal and up to the minute look at the park, there are two pages you can check out.

We have a River Currents blog and a Facebook page you can visit. Both are maintained by park staff and allow for you to respond to the current topics. We hope you will take a look and let us know what you think.

While we have have changed to the new River Currents Blog if you want to take a peak at previous year blogs that are no longer maintained, visit:
