Capacity Closures

We have a very high volume of visitors on most good-weather weekends and holidays. We close for up to four hours when parking lots are full. People with camping reservations will be able to enter during these closures.


Purchase “Save the Day” passes to guarantee entry using the new state parks reservation system. If you come without a pass, please arrive early and have a back-up plan.
