Utah State Parks

  In compliance with the recommendations from Governor Gary R. Herbert and after careful consideration, the Utah Division of Parks and Recreation has officially canceled all state park events.

This cancelation is effective immediately and will last through April 15th. It also includes events hosted by third-party vendors that are expected to take place at a state park during that time.

Although these events have been canceled, all state parks and recreation areas managed by the Division remain open during their operating hours. Visitors are encouraged to consult the Utah State Park’sofficial COVID-19 webpagefor information on parks that have had facilities impacts – such as campground or visitor center closures.

Some state parks are experiencing longer than normal wait times for this time of year. To help visitors know what to expect when they get here, check individual park social media pages and webpages before getting on the road.

Utah State Parks is following the guidance and recommendations of their health partners. This includes social distancing and limiting the size of groups. Guests are encouraged to practice healthy hygiene and avoid visiting parks if they feel ill or are having symptoms.

Events occurring after April 15 and in later months have not been canceled at this time but will be evaluated in the coming weeks.
