Officials announce Little River Canyon changes due to government shutdown

December 22, 2018--1:45 p.m.


Due to this federal government shutdown, all park facilities and services will be closed.

This means Canyon Mouth Park will be locked and inaccessible.

The bathrooms at the Little River Falls and Eberhart will be locked.

There will be no issuing or allowing of permits, no Jr. Ranger programs, etc.

However, overlooks and trails are still open to you.

But note, Law Enforcement Rangers will be present in the park throughout the shutdown....please be kind to them and the park....they are working for free.

Because the Little River Canyon Center is owned by Jacksonville State University, they can continue to keep it open and they will staff the front desk.
