Due to necessary emergency repair work, all modern restrooms on the east side of the lake at Big Creek are now closed for the rest of the year. This includes the restrooms at the open picnic shelters. Reservation will no longer be accepted at Shelters A through F and H, but these shelters will be available on a first come/first serve basis. Gannett and Beach Shelters 1, 2, and 3 will have portable toilets and may still be reserved. Big Creek Marina, the parks concession operation will not be impacted by the project. For updated information contact the park office at 515-984-6473. (Updated 9/14/10)

Very enjoyable ride. The view @ Sunset over the bridge, then the progression into dusk as the lights come on @ bridge .. - Unbeatable .

Excellent trail! Well maintained, various entrance points and a gorgeous bridge that lights up at night! We visited in late January on a mild day and it wasn't crowded at all! Great for bikes, runners, walkers and dogs! Love it!!
