Clark’s Lookout State Park to close
DILLON -- Clark’s Lookout State Park, located north of Dillon, will close for winter on Nov. 1 through April 30, 2019.
According to park officials, due to operational constraints, a seasonal gate closure is the most cost-effective way to maintain this facility over the winter months. Walk-in access to the park is still available, but parking is not permitted along Clark’s Lookout Road outside the gate because of private property. Fishing access off Lovers Leap Road will still be accessible to the public.
