State Parks Prepare to Reopen

Some Minnesota state parks will open for day and overnight use as soon as Friday, July 22, but other facilities will not be open until the weekend.
Minnesota Department of Natural Resources employees returned to work today after the agency and state government was shut down July 1. For state parks and trails employees, the first day of work will be focused on making sure parks and trails are safe for public use.
For some parks, a best-case scenario means they will reopen for day and some overnight use within 24 hours of staff returning to work. For overnight use, it may take two days or longer for staff to make campgrounds and facilities suitable for customers, which includes clearing away storm debris, turning on utility systems and cleaning restrooms.
