Capacity Closures

We have a very high volume of visitors on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays and school breaks. We close when we reach capacity.


You can purchase “Save the Day” passes up to 30 days before your visit with the new state parks reservation system. Passes may only be available online during busy times.


If you come without an entrance pass, watch for flashing yellow lights along the highway that will signal closures due to capacity, weather or other emergencies. 


Get updates on our Facebook page or Twitter feed.

Potable Water Shortage

Due to heavy weekend visitation and the ongoing drought, potable water is extremely limited. All visitors are encouraged to bring their own drinking water, and campers are encouraged to keep showers to a minimum.  Please help conserve our water resource during your next visit.
