Parking Lot Repaving Project
The Visitor Center parking lot and the Overlook parking lots will be repaved on Monday, September 29. These areas will still be accessible to the public, however, traffic flow may change during the project. Please be aware during your visit.
Living History volunteers provide visitors with a deeper experience at our historical sites. These passionate people share information on what life was like over 140 years ago on the grassy plains.
We are grateful to our local community for all the help they provide. We encourage the development of stewardship for our public lands. The beauty of the landscape is magnified by the support of earnest people who volunteer their time and effort.
