The mill is open for tours March–November. Note that the mill yard and the creek crossing area below the dam will need to be closed at times during the mill's off season (i.e., Dec. 2013–Feb. 2014) for safety reasons while replacement of the mill's wooden forebay is ongoing.
PHOTOGRAPHY IN THE PARK
If you're planning to come out for some family photography, please be courteous to other park visitors. Keep trails and boardwalks clear and observe all posted safety rules. Since the park is a wildlife refuge, all pets (except identifiable service animals) are not allowed. Thank you and have fun! View the photo policy.
