—————

The front gate will be open at Noon on Sunday. Do not arrive before then because you will
have to wait in the long line of cars that forms up for hours beforehand.
By 1:00 PM there are little or no lines.

Warning: If your vehicle (especially RVs) cannot pull completely clear (right) of the white line on the side of the road, you may be asked to leave the line and return later.
