Events and Programs
The park is open with two inches of snow on the road and twenty inches on all trails. Meat Camp Road is slick so be safe when trying to reach the park. Four wheel drive and foot traction devices are highly recommended. Thaw and re-freeze over night led to icy conditions this morning.Last updated on: Wednesday, December 12, 2018
