Pea Ridge National Military Park Modifies Park Operations to Slow the Spread of COVID-19
As of 05/26/2021, Pea Ridge National Miliatry Park is asking visitors to practice the principles of Leave No Trace by establishing a pack in-park-out policy for all park visitors. This requires visitors to take home all refuse and recyclables they might bring into the park while visiting. These additional modifications will enable the park to support federal, state, and local efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The park visitor center will be open Wednesday-Sunday, 10am-3:00pm when the 7-day rolling average of new COVID-19 cases in Benton County are in the Moderate risk or lower. There are no entrance fees. Most of the park trails are open, except where construction is ongoing. We ask that for safety, PLEASE remember to practice social distancing. The status of opening will be determined on a daily basis. Please contact the park at 479-451-8122, for updated information. Updates about NPS operation will be posted on www.nps.gov/coronavirse.
