Game And Parks Closes Lodges And Cabins At State Parks

LINCOLN, Neb. – Nebraska’s response to the coronavirus pandemic is causing lodging problems for some turkey hunters, who saw the archery season open on Wednesday with the shotgun season set to open on April 18th.

Some motels in popular hunting areas have temporarily closed and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is closing lodging facilities and cabin rentals for at least the month of April. The closures includes Fort Robinson and Chadron State Parks.

Tent and RV camping in Game and Parks campgrounds remains an option with rest rooms open but public shower buildings closed while the Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands has closed all its campgrounds until further notice.

Game and Parks says it will continue to look at other ways to self-limit occupancy and reduce congregations of people to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

State parks and recreation areas currently remain open for day use, hiking, camping, fishing, and recreation with users urged to maintain social distancing.
