4th of July Beach parking lot closed for winter

The National Park Service has closed the Fourth of July Beach parking area for the winter, due to muddy conditions from standing water.

Visitors can park at the gate and access the beach and picnic area on foot.

The parking area will be reopened in late spring when the ground hardens.
