Beginning May 21, as part of our phased re-opening Florida State Parks began offering limited camping availability for our guests. For the protection of both staff and visitors, cabins will remain closed until June 9. At parks where camping is offered, there may also be measures in place to reduce density while honoring current reservations. For details on specific parks, please visit their webpage(s). Our main priority is the safety of our guests and staff. As such, we will continue to review our operations on a daily basis and make additional operational changes as may be deemed necessary for protection of public health.
DEP continues to re-open Florida State Parks for day use as part of Phase one to re-open Florida. As these parks are re-opening, DEP will be taking measures to ensure the protection of staff and the public. During this phase of re-opening, visitors should expect limited hours, capacity and amenities. Portions of these parks and trails have been identified that can be reopened for day-use with limited risk to visitors and staff. To reduce risk, cash transactions for park admission are limited to exact change.
