Charleston Lake

Due to safety issues, the boardwalks at the beginning of the Tallow Rock Bay and Quiddity Trails will be closed until further notice. This closure will effectively limit access to the trails for the time being. 

Due to substantial rainfall and flash flooding on July 24, many campsites and areas of the park have been closed.

Meadowlands campground will be closed and no reservations will be taken until further notice. Several other sites in Bayside and Shady Ridge are also affected.

Please contact the the park for more information prior to your trip.
