Outdoor areas of the park are open all the time. Camping is only permitted in designated sites in campgrounds.
When is the best time to visit?
The park is relatively uncrowded and quiet from October through April. Visitation is lowest in December and January. Visitation is highest from May through September.
In summer, weekends are much busier than the weekdays. Coming on Mondays through Thursdays will help you avoid most of the parking and crowding issues that are common on summer weekends.
