Events and Programs
The water storage tanks in Sandling Beach will be replaced this Fall and will require the water to be turned off and park to be closed.
Therefore the park will close for the season 2 weeks early starting Sept 18.
The main park office will closed on Saturdays and Sundays through 2017. The office will however be open holiday weekends for visitor assistance. When closed, you may go to one of our park entrance stations for assistance.Posted on: Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 11:10am
