Park Update: 4/27/2022
Park Staff and other crews will be conducting vegetation management throughout the park this spring and summer. Please be aware that there may be unexpected closures and delays due to some of the work necessary to clear road, parking and trail obsticals. Firewood collection by the public is prohibited, but there will likely be a firewood sale later this year to liquidate the piles generated by the resource work. Information about purchasing firewood is available by calling 775-849-2511.
