All Florida State Parks Closed

March 23, 2020

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has closed all state parks at the direction of Governor DeSantis and to successfully uphold CDC guidance to maximize social distancing and avoid gatherings larger than 10 people.

The state said efforts were made to continue providing resource recreation at state parks, such as limiting operating hours and reducing visitor capacity at parks with high visitation. But FDEP said that did not result in the reductions needed to best protect public health and safety as Florida continues to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
