This summer, the Lakeside gates will be in operation from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day (excluding Monday, Aug. 31 through Thursday, Sept. 3, which will be free admission and parking).


Gate Hours

Due to the effects of COVID-19, we’ve reduced the number of our gate attendants this summer and have closed some of our gate entrances. The new gate hours are:

  • Fifth Street Gate: open 24 hours
  • South Gate: 7 a.m.-11 p.m.
  • East Second Street Gate: 8 a.m.-11 p.m.
  • West Second Street Gate: 7 a.m.-11 p.m. daily
  • Welcome Center: Closed most days, but may open for weekends (excluding Memorial Day weekend)

During closed hours, the South Gate Parking Lot will be accessible from inside the gates and exiting will be out the Fifth Street Gate.

Will Call/Pick Up Passes

Because the Welcome Center will be closed for most of the summer, passes purchased online prior to your arrival will be available for pick up at the South Gate entrance from the ticket booth.

Barcodes & Ticket Scanning

To limit physical contact at the gates, scanning barcoded passes will be suspended this summer.
