  • Winter Road Closure

    Effective:  October 12, 2021

      Due to hazardous seasonal road conditions, the gates to the lower parking lot are now closed for the season. The upper parking lot will remain open, the access road and upper parking lot are routinely plowed for vehicle access. Crescent Falls Day Use Area remains open but limited to foot traffic only. The campground is closed for the season.

      • Visitors should be prepared to walk 300m down the steep roadway which is often very icy.
      • We recommend that visitors utilize micro spikes or hiking poles for stability.

    Affected Areas
  • Removal of Equestrian Camping

    Effective:  October 1, 2021

      • Equestrian camping has now been removed from the Crescent Falls campground
      • Equestrian users are still able to stage for day rides from the upper day use parking lot
      • The removal is in response to:
        • A severely diminished equestrian camping experience due to a large increase in day use visitation and associated parking
        • Increased demand for picnic areas and parking for Crescent Falls for day use activities
