Utah State Parks Blog


This page will be updated as more information evolves and becomes available. Consult the table at the bottom of this page for info on specific parks.

The Utah Division of Parks and Recreation takes the health and safety of our visitors and employees seriously.

Employees have been asked to clean high-traffic areas or highly-used materials regularly, as well as to not report to work should there be concerns about their health status.

We encourage everyone visiting state parks practice #ResponsibleRecreation. This means: separating yourself and honoring the social distance of others, avoiding crowded trailheads and areas; and keeping parks and facilities clean.

We advise park visitors to always use their best judgment when determining the safety of themselves and their families. Guests are encouraged to practice healthy hygiene and avoid visiting parks if they feel ill or are having symptoms.


Please help keep our parks and park facilities clean and tidy by cleaning up after yourself in the restroom and informing our staff of any deficiencies you may encounter.

Utah State Parks is following the guidance and recommendations of our health partners. This includes social distancing and limiting the size of groups — as well as “Clean-Avoid-Cover” guidelines. Visit coronavirus.utah.gov for up-to-date information about COVID-19 in Utah.

Consult the table below for status on individual park closures or partial closures.
