Facilities Closed Statewide Until Further Notice
All picnic pavilions, playgrounds, nature play areas, visitor center exhibit halls, amphitheaters, and group camping facilities statewide will remain closed indefinitely.COVID-19 and Outdoor Recreation Reminders
Campsites and cabins should only be used by members living in the same household as part of COVID-19 mitigation efforts.
People who live in areas still under stay-at-home orders should not travel long distances for outdoor recreation, and instead should look for opportunities close to home.
Pennsylvania has 6,000 local parks and more than 12,000 miles of trails available (check first to make sure they are open, as some local parks are closed).
Visitors can help keep state parks and forest lands safe by following these practices:
Avoid crowded parking lots and trailheads
Bring a bag and either carry out your trash or dispose of it properly
Clean up after pets
Avoid activities that put you at greater risk of injury, so you don’t require a trip to the emergency room
To help avoid exposure to COVID-19 and protect others, and still enjoy the outdoors:
Don’t hike or recreate in groups -- go with those under the same roof, and adhere to social distancing (stay 6 feet apart)
Wear a mask
Take hand sanitizer with you and use it regularly
Avoid touching your face, eyes, and nose
Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with a tissue or flexed elbow
If you are sick, stay home
