I still don't see anything on recreation.gov about a shutdown.
This may just be one region, one park, or one employee who got bad info. I see this official release shutting down some facilities in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio, but it's not completely clear to me if campgrounds are being closed.

What a shame. Corp parks are the best, every one is on water.

The Corps of Engineers West Point Lake has closed all campgrounds until May 1st and refunded all reservation fees. I am concerned that state parks are soon to follow. I can understand the recommended precautions and procedures for mitigating this danger to the US and the whole world. As a senior and part of the most vulnerable group, I am complying to all of them. We have cancelled our local club camp outs(with meetings) and all of our national organization's rallys. This all makes sense.
That being said: Closing campgrounds to individual campers is just ridiculous. Where else is there such separation from folks per the recommendations?

Anyone hear about Ft. Pickens? Are they closing? Wouldn't doubt it. Finally got a mid May reservation (the first of the year) and they would close on us. Been chomping at the bit ever since. I heard that Florida State Parks are closed. Gotta find out about Ft. Pickens
How can I find out, other than calling?
If any one hears, please post.

thanks


Our 2351D Phoenix Cruiser, Jack, has turned us from campers into RVers and loving it!

Florida has cancelled camping at state parks for the next 60 days. I wasn't going to be in Florida, but this will drive a lot of people to Texas, if it stays open. I may have to move into an extended stay motel somewhere.

Not to be snarky but it too me literally 10 seconds to find this:
"Programs Cancelled and Indoor Visitor Facilities Closed
Alert 1 , Severity ,closure ,,Programs Cancelled and Indoor Visitor Facilities Closed
Following guidance from the CDC and public health officials, all ranger-led programs have been cancelled and several facilities are temporarily closed as of March 18. Updates posted here and on social media."

Just highlight Ft Pickens, right click, select google search for.... and shazam! The first item was the above.

Not to be snarky, but that may not have been there when he or I looked. This is changing by the hour.
