Bummer the ski areas are closing. We like to take our rig up to the overnight areas for some ski fun.

Florida may turn out to be a safer place to live because of the warmer weather. The virus thrives in the cooler weather but becomes less contagious in the warm weather.

The wife made 5 reservations for 5 different state parks on the east coast, all said " we'll be open " .
Ofcourse things could change but we're optimistic.

We don't know this. It is "suspected" that this is the case but this virus has spread through parts of the world where temperature is similar to our summer. Not sure I'd risk exposure on a suspicion.

Well.

Florida is closing the state park campgrounds for the next 60 days.

There goes our spring trip. 25 nights that we had reserved in various FL state parks. Some reservations that we bagged eleven months ago.

****.

It's just Mrs. SpeakEasy and me now (empty-nesters). But we can choose from among 7 grandchildren to drag along with us!

Thanks much for this!

I check on it every day now. Very informative site - with direct links to each state and their parks.

It's not looking like this will be a good year for camping. We've got lots of reservations that will probably be cancelled. Boo hoo.

We have over $1500 tied up in State park reservations in the coming months.
I would not expect these rural areas to be high risk but starting to lose some optimism.

Someone please hit reset. Lol

Hope there are a lot of sky-is-falling campers out there, there'll be more campsites available to the rest of us.

Not in SW NM RV parks are getting filled. Schools out, state parks closed, many asked to stay home from work. That equals lots loading kids and heading out for unscheduled vacations.

COVID-19 rapidly spread from a single city to the entire country in just 30 days. The sheer speed of both the geographical expansion and the sudden increase in numbers of cases surprised and quickly overwhelmed health and public health services in China, particularly in Wuhan City and Hubei Province.
