The survey results can be read here. Most people want the land left, but they want amenities (like bathrooms) and hiking trails. After that, fishing and picnicking are preferred. Of course, in Oregon County, residents would also like to see it open for hunting. They want scenic landscaping and natural fauna.

Although most people want the land left in a close-to-nature state, others would like to see internet options and wedding arrangements.

The park was open for viewers only during the eclipse on April 8, 2024. Overnight campers were not allowed.
