The park is currently experiencing a water shortage. Please arrive with full water tanks. No filling will be allowed at the park. Fire restrictions have been lifted, and we are now allowing campfires in park provided fire rings. Fire danger is still present within the park so please keep flames low, and a fire extinguisher nearby. On RED FLAG days campfires will NOT be permitted. No smoking outdoors.
