COVID 19 update (4-3-20): STATE PARKS CLOSURE EXTENDED TO MAY 4
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission announced the extended closure of state parks to the public through May 4. The closure coincides with the extension of Gov. Jay Inslee’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy,” order.
This action is a continuation of the state’s efforts to protect residents by stemming the spread of the coronavirus. This extension will apply to all camping on state lands, boat launches and water-access sites, wildlife areas, and day-use recreation areas.
Campers who have state parks reservations through May 4 will be notified and offered a full refund.
