Alerts & Conditions

The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis. Based on guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, access to Chamizal National Memorial is as follows:

Open

  • Park grounds
  • Comfort station (excluding water fountain)
  • Picnic areas
  • Roads
  • Trails

Closed

  • Administrative offices
  • Cultural Center
    • Visitor information desk (including access to passport stamps and America the Beautiful passes)
    • Museum
    • Park Store
    • Theater

While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased, and services may be limited. When recreating, please follow local area health orders, practice Leave No Trace principles, and avoid crowding and high-risk outdoor activities.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
