Current status of facilities at Morrow Mountain State Park   

All trails, the boat ramp, most restrooms, family camping, primitive camping, and vacation cabins are OPEN. Camping and cabin reservations are REQUIRED before arrival. There are no walk-up reservations. Visitors must book reservations online and arrive before 9:00pm on the day of reservation. Restrooms will be closed periodically so that staff can adhere to new cleaning protocols. Weather-based horse trail closures will continue to be updated on the park's main webpage.

Group camping, the park office, boat rentals, swimming pool, museum, lodge, picnic shelters, snack bars, retail areas, and water fountains remain CLOSED. The road to the scenic overlook will remain CLOSED to all motor vehicle traffic. There will be no firewood sales, special events, or programs until further notice. The swimming pool will remain closed through the 2020 season.

Park hours are 7:00am to 10:00pm. Day use areas close at 9:00 pm. Parking is limited to available spaces only to keep the park under capacity. There is no overflow parking or parking allowed on road shoulders. When capacity is reached, only those with camping/cabin reservations will be allowed to enter the park.

When visiting, please follow social distancing guidelines, regardless of the behavior of others. Please try to stay 6 feet away from other visitors and park staff. It is now a requirement to wear a mask or face covering when social distancing cannot be met in indoor and outdoor spaces. Try to touch as few surfaces as possible and do not enter areas that have been closed off. Wash or sanitize your hands before, during, and after your visit, and stay home if you are sick.

Don't forget water!   

It's that time of year again. The heat and humidity are getting to be consistently high. Please plan ahead and bring more water than you think you'll need. Don't forget to bring some for your furry friends, too. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are not currently selling concessions. There are water spigots near the museum in the office parking lot, the lower picnic area, and the bridle trail parking lot. The restrooms at the boathouse and lower picnic area are open. The restroom at the Morrow Mountain Summit is closed for repairs and there is no other water source available up there at this time.
