By order of the San Juan County Council and in the best interest of the public and county staff, camping at all four county parks is closed until May 30. The action was taken on Monday, March 23, in an effort to flatten the spread of COVID-19.

Camping reservations for arrival between now and May 30 at any of the four San Juan County campgrounds will be canceled with full refunds given. No new reservations will be accepted until further notice.

At the present time, Day Parks and day use are still open, though we ask all visitors to please follow CDC guidelines for social distancing. Some restroom facilities may be closed and there will be no drinking water available in any of the parks.

We appreciate your understanding and efforts to keep our communities safe from the spread of this viral infection.
