Current Conditions



Recreate Responsibly

If you brought it into the park, take it with you when you leave. Trash pickup and restroom facilities are limited. Follow Leave No Trace principles. If you are not comfortable touching the handles on our trash receptacles, please do not just leave your trash on top of the bins or on the ground. This is a hazard for both other visitors and wildlife. If you can't put trash in receptacles, please take your trash with you!

Know your limits. Many incidents can be avoided when visitors plan and make responsible decisions.


All areas of the park are currently open, aside from closures listed on the Alerts. Most of the roads in the park are dirt or gravel. After heavy rains, and with high use, these roads can be muddy, have lots of ruts and holes, and are usually washboard-like. Drive with caution.

The flush toilets at Munising Falls are open year-round. Vault toilets at Sand Point Beach and the Grand Sable Visitor Center parking lot are open year-round. When toilets are not available, walk 200 feet from roads, trails, and water; dig a 6-8 inch small hole in order to bury human waste and toilet paper, cover hole. Do not bury human waste in snow; please use the vault toilets or pack it out.


Grand Sable Visitor Center is closed for the season.
Munising Falls Visitor Center (undergoing renovation) will be closed this winter.
All drive-in campgrounds are closed for the season.

Water fountains and spigots throughout the park have been shut down for the season. Vault toilets closed except at Sand Point Beach and Grand Sable Visitor Center parking lot.

In winter, park roads are not plowed except for Sand Point Road. Winter snow will shortly close all other roads. Unplowed roads are designated for snowmobiles only (no other motor vehicles permitted).
