Neb Game And Parks Lifting Coronvirus Limits On RV And Tent Camping

LINCOLN, Neb – Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is lifting the coronavirus limits on RV and tent camping at reservation-only and first-come campsites next Thursday, with 2 exceptions in high COVID-19 threat areas.

Designated beaches, swimming areas, and playgrounds will also reopen June 4, as will shower houses and modern restrooms.

The maximum length of stay is 7 days and campers must pay for reserved sites online and for first-come first-serve sites at drop-boxes because park offices remain closed.

Cabins, lodges, and group activity shelters at state park and recreation areas will remain closed through at least June 15. The closures are being continued until proper disinfection between reservations can be achieved for the safety of guests and their communities.

Camp guests will be able to make reservations online for previously reservable sites or enjoy first-come first-serve camping across the state. Wildlife management areas remain open for camping.

Game and Parks Director Jim Douglas says the agency is pleased to be able to respond to the high demand for camping and outdoor recreational opportunities and the easing of coronavirus limits by restoring camping opportunities.

Douglas says Game and Parks appreciates everyone’s enthusiasm and patience as the agency has worked to provide opportunities while at the same time helping to protect the health of the public and our staff.”

He reminds park guests, both those camping and those with day-use activities, to practice social distancing to ensure compliance with the state’s Directed Health Measures amid the COVID-19 health situation.
