You're getting in just under the wire to have your own campfire in the park (at designated locations) as the last day permitted is October 15th.  In terms of hosted NPS campfires and Ranger campfire talks, you'll have to check with the park itself for an updated schedule.  The best number to call is: (209) 372-0200; press 3 then 5.

Have a great trip!

Laurel Falls is fed by both rainfall and natural springs. It is strongest in the spring and when there has been heavy waterfall. The size of the falls decreases during droughts, but it doesn't dry up thanks to the springs!

The nearest parks to Chicago that feature caves and caverns are Illinois Caverns State Natural Area and Cave in Rock State Park. They're both over a five-hour drive from Chicago, however.

I hope you have an exciting time exploring Illinois' caves. Be sure to check back in at OhRanger.com after you trip to share you park experiences with us!

Hi quarterpaints1,

Waterton Lakes National Park has a huge variety of vegetation, much of which is unique. (The park is a biosphere reserve, which means the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) set it aside specifically because of its ecological uniqueness.

There are 45 vegetation types and over 1400 forms of vegetation within the park.

For a list of plants of particular concern in the park, click here.

Have fun exploring the unique ecosystem of Waterton National Park. Please come back to OhRanger.com to post photos of the interesting plants you spot during your trip!
