Will state lands close if there are issues with crowding?

As we begin to reopen lands, we are asking people to continue practicing physical distancing. If we notice large groups congregating or lack of adherence to physical distancing protocols, we will evaluate location-based closures at that time.

In addition, if other COVID-19 related public safety concerns develop, WDFW, DNR and State Parks may close areas with limited notice to further protect public health and safety.
