Thanks.  I just added that to the APRS Parks coverage list:
http://aprs.org/aprs-parks.html

If anyone else has updates for that list, let me know.

Here are the unknowns and the no-coverage ones... You can ignore the
numbers, those are the number of visitors per year and the number of hams
estimated to be in the park per day...
