1 Day use at Norris has risen substantially over the past decade requiring staff to focus largely on day-use issues such as increasing parking congestion, the need for bathroom cleaning, and public safety. Due to Norris’ remote location, the park does not have the staffing required to effectively respond to emergency incidents occurring overnight (law enforcement, emergency medical services etc.).

1 Pebble Creek Campground was significantly impacted by the 2022 floods and will remain closed for the 2024 season for flood recovery work.
2 The park is making a variety of repairs to Tower Fall Campground. In addition, portions of the campground will likely be used to house contractors working on the Northeast Entrance Road. At this time, there is no set date for when the campground will open.
