As of October 10th, 2019 IDNR park staff were able to open the first two lanes of the main parking lot in front of the Visitor Center.
The boat ramp area and remainder of the main parking lot remain closed due to flood clean up. Visitors are asked to park at the gravel overflow parking lot located off of the south entrance by Route 71. Lodge guests may park at the lodge parking lot. All other parking lots including smaller canyon lots such as St. Louis, Ottawa, and LaSalle Canyons are open to users.
