We're calling it open

In our definition, ice-out on Lake Opeongo occurs when a water taxi can make a return trip to and from the North Arm, unimpeded by ice. This occurred on April 29, even though there still was ice floating around on lake. Today there is no ice left at all.

Conditions are still highly variable depending on what access point you are heading for. Keep checking the park's page for updates:
