DNR reopening some property features

From Local Sources

Beginning today, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources has reopened equestrian and mountain bike trails, for day use only, at its properties.

And that’s not all that is resuming.

Nature centers and historic facilities in state park properties will open this week; however, hours may be reduced and social distancing may limit the number of guests allowed in a respective facility at one time. Marinas will also open this week with limited operations.

Day-use restrooms and vault toilets will open at DNR properties by Friday. Until then, guests should come prepared for restroom use to be restricted.

A complete status list for facilities and services at DNR properties can be found here.

Guests at DNR properties should remember the following when visiting:

• Practice social distancing at all times, particularly, as you hike, picnic or use boat ramps. Keep a minimum of 6 feet from other individuals you encounter, for your safety and theirs.

• Keep your group size small. Fewer than 25 individuals is ideal.

• Bring your own drinking water and hand sanitizer.

• If you picnic, bring and use a covering for your picnic table and take it with you when you leave.

• If a parking lot is full, move to another location.

• If you feel sick or are running a temperature, plan a visit for a different day for the safety of other guests.
