Alerts & Conditions

All Facilities are Now Open

While all areas (except for the Friends Meetinghouse and Prairie Trails which are closed due to construction) 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. Masks are required inside all federal buildings and outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained.

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.
