Missouri State Parks will be closing all campgrounds and lodging, effective, this weekend through the end of April.

The department of natural resources says, while the parks will be closed for camping and lodging, they will remain open for day-use.

All fees which have been pre-paid for lodging for the closing period, will be refunded.

More information about the state parks and the affected schedules due to the COVID issue can be found on the DNR’s website.
