Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Second car in lot at 6:50am. Plenty of space at 2pm. I did stop by exit 32C to check out the shuttle parking lot. Had good talk with money taker. The DOT was behind this; not the state park. We have been lucky no one killed on 93. There were many close calls. He did say that the $5.00 does not come close to covering cost. I suspect next year, cost will go up. The lot is very large.
