Due to COVID-19, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources has extended the closures of campgrounds and state park facilities through May 14, 2020 to protect the health of visitors and staff. State parks and forests will remain open for daily use but visitors are reminded not to gather in groups and maintain social-distancing rules.
The park facilities that will remain closed through May 14 include:
- Cabins, shelters and lodges
- Visitor centers and museums
Social distancing requires six feet of separation between individuals in order to prevent the airborne-spread of COVID-19 according to a press release from Gov. Kim Reynolds.
