Arizona State Parks and Trails is monitoring the situation around COVID-19 and the impact of coronavirus for our state parks. We are taking the recommended precautions presented by the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to provide a safe experience for our visitors as they responsibly enjoy campsites, cabins and hiking trails throughout Arizona's state parks. Arizona's state parks are included in the list of essential services provided by Governor Ducey.
As a reminder, all group areas and ramadas will remain closed through Easter weekend. No group gatherings of any kind will be allowed at the parks.
We are taking the necessary precautions for our visitors, volunteers and staff as recommended by the CDC and Arizona Department of Health Services. We ask that our visitors help us follow these guidelines by not gathering in groups, maintaining social distance of six feet, using a different park or trail if it's crowded, using hand sanitizer, and packing out all trash. We will continue to provide open spaces, hiking trails, campgrounds, and outdoor destinations for people to enjoy as long as we are able.
