Severe weather & park maintenance closures

The National Weather Service (NWS) recommends that if a weather emergency occurs, campers should seek shelter in a substantial building or hard-topped vehicle and wait for 30 minutes after the storm before resuming activities. The NWS advises not to remain in tents, campers, pop-up trailers, or other similar camp units during severe weather. Advanced preparation such as becoming aware of local radio stations or other means of monitoring weather conditions should be part of every camping trip.
