Hello everyone, do we have to wait till the visitor center to open in order to go to the falls or can we just simply pay for parking and go directly to the falls? Thanks so much in advance
We just drove there and parked. I had a senior pass.
They have a on site pay station. Right now it is snow bound you have to wear proper snow clothing. And have proper form of travel over the snow. Snowshoes, cross country skiing, snowmobiles. Be prepared with proper back country survival equipment and hazardous winter conditions.
As I recall, there was a station where you can pay for parking with an envelope and drop it in a slot. The visitor center hours are just for the visitor center. I would think that if you visit during the park hours and pay for your parking, you are fine to walk down to the falls regardless of whether the Visitor Center is open or not.
