What is still opened?
What is closed?

I was in N Ga and April 3rd at 6pm they were closing down. I saw signs (posted prior) that the AT was closed. Why? no idea, this is the ultimate social distancing activity.
The "Forest" was closed. Im not sure what that means. Many primitive campsites were posted closed with threats of $5,000 fines or a year in jail - for camping or parking in the middle of nowhere! The World has gone insane.

The trails were closed, but the Governor said going out to exercise was allowed. Since when did we lose our freedoms? Like 911, this too shall never pass.

If you see something opened, or closed, let us know the date and location.

Here in Arkansas they tried to keep State Parks and hiking trails open, that lasted over one weekend. People were not practicing the six foot rule, crowding together in packs, and they shut all that down. Most city parks, playgrounds and groups of five or more are also forbidden. Walking around the yard is about all that's left.

“Since when did we lose our freedoms?” Lincoln suspended habeas corpus. FDR rounded up all Japanese Americans. Truman nationalized the steel industry. All un-Constitutional.

Waiving the flag and shouting about the Constitution won’t stop this virus. All of us staying put, Social distancing, wearing masks, washing our hands will help stop this virus.

Your home county newspaper reported two days ago...”St. Clair County previously has announced three COVID-19 related deaths.”

Help. Don’t hurt.

Ohio State Park hiking trails and lakes are still opened. State park lodges, campgrounds, cabins, golf courses and all restrooms are closed. Each State Park can determine if the trails need to be closed due to overcrowding.

Hi,

Here is a way to find possibly open locations. I would suggest phoning to confirm.

Considering that virus can fly up to 10 feet distance when infected person sneezes or coughs social distancing is a good idea.
Wearing mask is even better protection,,one reason Japan for example has very few dead while Italy has many thousands

You lost your "freedom" when the rest of us decided we wanted to live. Staying in your home restricts the chances of spreading this virus, plain and simple.

It's hard for some to understand that it's the few that makes these places have to shut down. We would all like to be able to get out there, allowing for the distance thing in the process. But.....that group of rowdies two sites over......well, you know the rest.

We, (Me, My Wife, and two of our children,) went camping in Nebraska last weekend. The sites are roomy, and far from other campers. We stayed away from other people. There were plenty of people out camping and enjoying the outdoors. Nobody was getting close to anyone. We went for walks, and when there were other people walking, we keep distance, and so did they. We were firmly believing that here in Nebraska, we had a good grasp on social distancing, hoping that the campgrounds would continue to allow overnight camping. But, alas, they closed overnight camping a day or two ago. Unbelievable. The parks are open for day use, makes no sense. I don't have to explain to the folks on RV.net. Just frustrating. At least we got out two weekends this spring before the madness started.

I have read that rural areas don't have the medical resources to take care of outsiders who might contract the virus, so that is why they are closing campgrounds.
