The access was closed for a time due to the decline of jellyfish from the change in water temperatures. The jellyfish are being to rebound, and I was able to purchase the Jellyfish Lake permit from the government earlier this week.

This is obviously a huge attraction because there is a ranger station at the entrance and a fancy walkway to the lake. There is no chance anyone could sneak in. When it rains a lot hopefully it will reopen. No known opening date.
