State parks have been greatly impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. DEEP created a section on its website to show residents which parks are open, closed, or open with no swimming.
During the coronavirus pandemic, state parks have remained open and available for residents to get outside for healthful recreation, but with social distancing measures and capacity restrictions.
Officials say state parks have welcomed millions of day-use visitors so far this year, and expect to welcome millions more this summer.
