Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway is CLOSED due to hazardous road conditions.
Inclement weather often creates unsafe road conditions. Currently, there is a "glaze" of transparent ice on sections of the road. The Parkway will reopen as soon as State law enforcement officers deem it safe to travel upon.
Most campgrounds remain OPEN. Sites are available on first-come, first-served basis.
Jed Smith, Elk Prairie, Gold Bluffs Beach campgrounds are OPEN. All sites are available on first-come, first-served basis. Mill Creek Campground is CLOSED and will reopen May 16, 2014. More »
