We try to open everyday once our season begins. Exceptions are extremely cold and rainy days, especially at 11a. If we do open we need 25 paying guests to stay open. If we close, usually by 1pm, and you paid for entrance you will be issued a day pass for entrance on a better day. If there is lightning in the area we will ask guests to leave the water and wait until the storm has passed.
