UPDATE: January 14, 2019
National Park Service officials are using Federal Land and Recreation Enhancement funds (aka, FLREA or "rec fee funds") to immediately bring back park maintenance crews to clean restrooms and remove trash, increasing accessibility to the park for visitors while ensuring health and safety. Previously closed National Park Service bathrooms and day use areas will be cleaned and reopened during the week of January 13th with all bathrooms and day use areas reopened by January 19th.
