Status Unclear for Arkansas National Parks Despite Government Reopening


Although the government has reopened, the state of national parks in Arkansas is unclear.

Some of the parks that have been closed throughout the shutdown may not re-open immediately.

The National Park Service released this statement: 

“With the enactment of the continuing resolution, the National Park Service is preparing to resume regular operations, though the schedule for individual parks may vary depending on staff size and complexity of operations. Many parks which have been accessible throughout the lapse in appropriations remain accessible with basic services. Visitors should contact individual parks or visit park websites for the latest information about opening schedules and accessibility and visitor services.”
