All trails, the boat ramp, restrooms, family camping, primitive camping and vacation cabins are OPEN. Camping and cabin reservations are REQUIRED before arrival. There are no walk-up reservations. Visitors must book reservations online and arrive before 8 p.m. on the day of reservation. Restrooms will be closed periodically so that staff can adhere to new cleaning protocols. Weather-based horse trail closures will continue to be updated on the park's main webpage.

The park office is open. A properly worn mask or face covering, covering both the nose and the mouth, is required to enter the park office. The lodge and museum remain closed.

Picnic shelters are open and available for reservation.

Boat rentals and the boathouse, concession stands, and water fountains remain closed. Group campsites remain closed until further notice due to a challenging natural resource concern with the restroom facilities. 

Park hours are 7:00am to 8:00pm. Day use areas close at 7:00 pm. Parking is limited to available spaces only to keep the park under capacity. There is no overflow parking or parking allowed on road shoulders. When capacity is reached, only those with camping/cabin reservations will be allowed to enter the park.

Please note that this alert is updated only when something changes. Generally, state parks are following a phased reopening statewide. As of November 13, we are following modified Phase 3.
