Nebraska State Park Lodging Facilities, Cabin Rentals Temporarily Closing April 1 – 30

LINCOLN – Effective April 1 for the entire month state park lodging facilities and cabin rentals will be closed.

According to a release from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, this proactive effort is to prevent the potential spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The commission is temporarily closing state park lodging in Nebraska from April 1 – 30 and a possible extension period may be implemented if conditions do not improve.

Tent camping and RV camping are still available and will be evaluated regularly, following state and federal directives, as well as local health department guidelines.

Public shower buildings are closed through April 30, but park bathrooms, which are sanitized regularly, will remain open. The agency is taking proactive measures to protect its customers and employees, including using approved cleaning and disinfecting regiments per Centers for Disease Control recommendations.

Game and Parks will continue to look at other ways to self-limit occupancy and reduce congregations of people to prevent the spread of the virus. Nebraska state parks and recreation areas currently remain open for day use, hiking, camping, fishing and recreation while maintaining social distancing.
