Little Falls Lake is back to full level, however, it will take a couple of years for stocked fish to grow. Trout fishing is open for catch and release only until the regular season opens on May 1, 2021.


All trails are open for hiking. Trail conditions vary. Bikes are allowed on the paved roads and on the trail from the 300 campground to the dam.
