Effective Monday, May 4, DEP will implement phase one to reopen the Florida State Parks. As these parks are re-opening, DEP will be taking measures to ensure the protection of staff and the public.
During this early phase of re-opening, visitors should expect limited hours, capacity and amenities. Phase one includes approximately 80 parks and trails throughout Florida. Portions of these parks and trails have been identified that can be reopened for day use with limited risk to visitors and staff.


The list

The only thing I can deduce from this list is that they excluded any parks with a campground. FL has 177 parks right now.

I recognize a few that have campsites. I didn’t see any that my DP would fit in. Faver Dykes for instance.

Yeah it seems that they prioritized beach side parks, tho I think I saw Tomoka on the list too. We have camped there. I didn't notice any springs parks on the list, Manatee, Oleno, and Fanning Springs are not on it. Whatever criteria they used is a mystery.

It might be based on number of sites. Most those parks are not very big.

I wish Florida well. Is this reopening driven by science/medical opinion or politics? Staying closed longer endangers no one. Opening too early....

To little to late. They should have done much more. It’s frustrating to us who are natives

Agreed. This isn't smart science. It's economy based.

You can bet the farm its economy based, as it should be and has to be.

I think someone who has been without an income for 2 months, and potentially could be without one for a lot longer with no clear direction regarding timeframes and constantly changing criteria, may tell you staying closed longer endangers someone. These clowns all use the word "safe", or the terms "keeping people safe" or "we have to keep people safe"......screw safe, life is not safe and no politician can make it so by edict. The great experiment has been conducted and its impossible to continue it forever if you want anything to be able to reopen.

State Parks are easy to reopen, hell just make an announcemet, money is no object. A private business is a slightly different scenario as we don't have a golden goose.

Of course you guys can stay hunkered down as long as you care to do so, no matter what reopens and when.

Given the choice of having an income or the chance of getting what amounts to a bad cold, and for most nothing, I think I'll go with the income.
