The park is currently offering very limited services outside those that support visitor or resource protection. Park rangers remain on duty protecting the parks and normal rules and regulations continue to apply.

To protect NPS and contractor employees, limited trash and restroom services exist. We urge visitors to continue to practice Leave No Trace principles, including by packing out their trash, to keep outdoor spaces safe.

You can follow the park's advisory Twitter account @GGNRANPSAlerts for the latest updates.
