Critical Water Shortage

July 1, 2021 - Due to ongoing drought, potable water is extremely limited. Restrooms may be closed, but portable toilets will be made available. While drinking water is available, please bring your own to help us conserve water during your next visit.

We encourage you to bring enough water for your visit. Bottled water will be available for sale at Park HQ, and in vending machines.
