Rock Island State Park is open, but the following alert is important for all visitors June 1-June 30
TVA Great Falls Dam is expected to be in Active spill mode for several weeks. All river gorge areas downstream of the dam are closed when the dam is in Active water spill mode. Some park areas along the lake to include the Sandbar have also had flooding occur recently. All other park areas & waterfall overlooks are open. The park has also seen very high visitation over the last year. Please do not park on roadsides or in non-designated areas. If the park is full, please consider visiting another state park in the area.
