During our visit in Nashik it was closed and no access for public. According to the guard, June to October (Rainy season) it will be closed and public are not allowed to enter there.
Very good place to visit during all times a year especially post monsoons. Backwaters with all wine yards around is a treat to eyes and soul
Nothing to do here but just to hear the chirping of birds & enjoy the wind and the sea. Entrance for public I think is not allowed unless you can bribe the guard there.
