Minnesota campers now have a chance to get out and enjoy state campgrounds for the first time this year, but there are some restrictions related to COVID-19.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has reopened its campgrounds at state parks, state forests and recreation areas in a phased approach, following the State of Minnesota campground guidelines.
To better plan your camping trip, visitors should be aware of the following:
- Cash-less and minimal contact transactions (pay online when possible)
- Bring everything you’ll need, including soap and sanitizing supplies
- Socially distance yourself while camping
- Only members of your own household should be at the campsite
- Make sure facilities and programs are open ahead of time
The DNR will leave the following facilities and amenities closed until further notice: beaches, pond-pools, housekeeping cabins, visitor centers, group centers, fire towers, large-group facilities (such as amphitheaters), group tours and other scheduled interpretive programs.
Visitors are advised to check the DNR’s COVID-19 website for the latest information about facility status and reopening timelines.
