Outdoor recreation is important to the health and wellness of those who live here, as well as visitors. We all play a part in keeping one another safe. While outdoors, we cannot relax our efforts to practice safe social distancing and #ResponsibleRecreation. Visitors are encouraged to:

  • Check park conditions online and individual state park social media accounts. Extensive wait times, closures, and other updates will be posted there.
  • Choose to visit a state park during a weekday, or during non-peak hours whenever possible. Visit parks that are close to home.
  • Practice safe social distancing. Give others at least six-feet of separation on trails, golf courses, fishing docks, overlooks, and other gathering areas.
  • Avoid congregating at trailheads and other common areas, and maintain small group sizes.
  • Stay home if you’re sick, or have symptoms of the coronavirus.
  • Keep parks and recreation areas clean by packing out what you pack in, and respect facility closures like visitor centers, campgrounds, and restrooms.
