Arkansas State Parks Campsites WILL NOT BE AFFECTED By Possible Federal Government Shutdown

Kimberly J. Williams
There seems to be some confusion about what the possible shutdown of the U.S. Government will affect. Arkansas’s State Parks WILL NOT be affected if the Federal Government should shut down. Private campgrounds throughout the state will also NOT be affected. Only the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and National Park Service campgrounds will be affected if the shutdown occurs. 

All state park lodging properties, campgrounds, and other facilities will be open for visitors. Information on campgrounds in Arkansas are available on
