Some restrictions in place, but FWP sites remain open

As a reminder to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing guidelines should be followed at all FWP sites. Keep your distance from fellow recreators. While fishing access sites, state parks and wildlife management areas remain open (check for seasonal closures and openings), fishing piers, playgrounds and group-use facilities are closed to the public.

Maintenance at FWP facilities will be cut back and public opportunities limited:

– Overnight camping will not be allowed.
– Campgrounds will be systematically closed to give current campers 72-hour notice.
– Group use sites will be closed, including playgrounds and fishing piers.
– Visitor center closures will be extended at least through April 10.
– Bathrooms may be limited.
– Sites will be regularly patrolled by enforcement staff.

If a parking lot at a fishing access site or state park is full, consider another place to recreate. Also, it is a good idea to recreate in your local area.
