To help you plan your off-season visit, please consider the following:
- Visitors are welcome to explore the front-country area, with the exception of Jeremy’s Bay Campground (including Jim Charles Point). This area is unsafe for entry as it is an active construction site and therefore closed to visitors.
- Firewood will be for sale at the picnic shelter at Mill Falls, and the shelter will be available for day use.
- Porta-potties will be available at the Big Dam Road turnoff and the outhouse at Mill Falls parking lot is also available.
- The gates on the Eel Weir Road (at Grafton Lake) and on Big Dam Road are closed until the roads have dried in the spring. Vehicle traffic on gravel and dirt roads is limited due to freeze thaw conditions through fall, winter and spring.
Visitors are responsible for their own safety. Visitors should be aware of changeable weather conditions and winter hazards, and have adequate information and equipment to ensure a safe visit.
Shelters and trails will be open, however the Visitor Centre and other facilities remain closed.
