Some Parks Canada places have begun a safe, gradual reopening of some outdoor areas and services, including camping. Visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and be well-prepared for their visit. Details here.

The national historic site is open every day from sunrise to 11 p.m. The site is partially closed to visitors due to work on the upstream jetty.
