Anyone planning to visit this beautiful park be aware that the number of visitors has more than doubled in recent years. My wife and I were there March 17-18. Between spring breakers going to the parks instead of Mexico and families being able to travel since school is distance learning for many kids, it was absolutely crazy!
You now need to read the website carefully and purchase your shuttle passes before you leave home. We saw hundreds of very disappointed people, ourselves included as it was nowhere near this busy 7 years ago the same week of the year.
It reminded me of Yogi Berra's quote about a popular restaurant. "It's become so busy that no one goes there anymore!"
