Game and Parks closing overnight camping April 6-May 8

NEBRASKA – In a proactive effort to prevent the potential for spread of the coronavirus, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will prohibit overnight camping at state parks, state recreation areas and wildlife management areas starting Monday through Friday, May 8, with a possible extension. In addition, the closure of state park area lodging and cabins will be extended through May 8. The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services recommends travelers coming to Nebraska or back to Nebraska from out-of-state should limit public interactions, practice strict social distancing, self-monitor for symptoms, and self-quarantine for 14 days. State parks and recreation areas will remain open for day use so guests may enjoy activities such as fishing, hiking, biking and wildlife viewing while maintaining proper physical distancing of at least 6 feet. A limited number of restrooms, which will be disinfected regularly using Centers for Disease Control and Prevention protocols, will be available.
