Planning a spring camping trip?
We suggest relocating your vacation to the backyard, as all Washington campgrounds have closed until April 30.
On Saturday, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission, Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the Department of Natural Resources announced the closure of all state campgrounds across Washington as a way to help reduce the spread of coronavirus.
All day-use areas and trails remain open but should be used with caution. Park-goers should continue practicing social distancing: staying at least six feet apart from one another, and avoiding walking in groups.
Those who have state parks reservations through April 30 will be notified by Washington State Parks and offered a refund.
