Indoor spaces at Missouri State Parks are closed.

The Department of Natural Resources made the decision last week to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  The closures include visitor centers, nature centers, museums and offices.  Park and historic site outdoor spaces and amenities remain open during normal hours.  You can still stay in lodging at state parks, including at campgrounds, and boat ramps and trails are open.

Before you head to a state park in Missouri, you can find out what’s open at mostateparks.com.

And, although in-person programs and tours are not taking place, there are virtual alternatives for the public as well as lesson plans for parents and teachers.  You can find out about those on the Missouri State Park's website, too.
