Passive Recreation with Social Distancing
During this time, state parks and forests will continue to be open to the public for hiking and other passive recreation. Community health is crucial right now and exercising (walking, hiking, and biking) while observing social distancing practices can help ensure public health.
To protect public health and safety due to the spread of COVID-19, the State Park Service has closed all park facilities (restrooms, offices, nature centers, historic buildings), canceled all events, and canceled all upcoming camping reservations through Thursday, April 30.
Existing camping reservations from Monday, March 16, through Thursday, April 30, will be canceled. Reservations will be refunded in full at our earliest convenience. Campers currently occupying a campsite will be required to leave by the end of today, March 16. No new future camping reservations are being accepted.
Check our Facebook page and the Division of Parks and Forestry’s website for any new information.
