To help slow the spread of COVID-19 and ensure adherence to social distancing guidelines, Wyoming State Parks (WYO Parks), a division of Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources, has temporarily closed all camping to non-residents, according to a Thursday afternoon release from WYO Parks.
All existing 2020 reservations for out-of-state campers will be canceled and all charges will be refunded, per the release.
WYO Parks officials will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation statewide, per the release, and when deemed appropriate by Governor Mark Gordon and State Health Officer and Epidemiologist Dr. Alexis Harrist, a plan to reopen camping to non-residents will be developed and implemented.
WYO Parks noted in the release that the camping situation in neighboring states will likely play a part in their determination of when camping might open to non-residents again in Wyoming.
