Idaho State Parks closing camper cabins and yurts for COVID-19 prevention

Idaho State parks will be closing the Camper Cabins, Yurts and Idaho City Backcountry Yurts to protect the public and park employees from potential Covid-19 exposure. The closures will occur on Monday and all visitors with reservations will receive full refunds. The closures will last until April 30th and could be extended, depending on the status of the virus outbreak in six weeks.

Overall, Idaho State Parks remain open for day use and most camping – but hands-on activities and large group events are discontinued, and premium cabins and picnic shelters are also closed.
