State Parks closed due to pandemic

In case you haven't heard, all state parks are closed in Illinois and Wisconsin due to the coronavirus pandemic. I'm sure it's the same for many of the other parks in the Midwest. Be sure to check the current status before you plan a trip to any of the parks in this area.

Same here in Florida all state parks closed. Nature Reserves and Wildlife Management Areas are on county by county basis. Got burnt this weekend bringing family down to Polk County for a hike only to be closed. Found something else luckily a county over that was good enough.

Sorry didn’t realize this was Midwest topic.

I have booked a long weekend of adventure around Lake Superior this summer hopefully won’t have to cancel.
