JULY 16, 10 AM – JULY 18, Noon, 2019

Big Creek Lodge will be closed for “drop in” visitors for the brief period above. We appreciate your help in avoiding the lodge for a couple days-since it is in the middle of the week we we hope it won’t impact very many people planning to drop by . If you or someone you know may be visiting in that time (without a previous reservation), please forward this information and we hope you/they can visit another date. This does not impact guests with reservations which have already been made.
