Will state lands close if there are issues with crowding?

As we reopen lands, we are asking people to continue practicing social distancing. If we notice large groups gathering or people not social distancing, we may have to look at closing parks or areas within parks.

If new COVID-19 related safety concerns develop, the Washington Departments of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and Natural Resources (DNR) and State Parks may close areas with limited notice to protect public health and safety.
