Prescribed Fire   

Park staff is hoping to conduct prescribed burns during the late winter and early spring.  This may result in temporary closure of some trails, campgrounds, or facilities on short notice.  It should not affect weekend park operations.  If you have any questions please call the Park Office at (252)357-1191.
