Changes at Little River Canyon National Preserve due to the federal government shutdown include closure of park facilities and services, which means that Canyon Mouth Park will be locked and inaccessible. The bathrooms at the Little River Falls and Eberhart will be locked.
There will be no issuing/allowing of permits and no Jr. Ranger Programs, etc.; however, the overlooks and trails are still open.
Law Enforcement Rangers will be present in the park throughout the shutdown.
Because the Little River Canyon Center is owned by Jacksonville State University – they can continue to keep it open and they will staff the front desk.
