Arkansas State Parks NOT Affected by U.S. Government Budget Problems

Kerry Kraus
There seems to be some confusion about what the possible shutdown of the U.S. Government would 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.
All state park lodging properties, campgrounds, and other facilities will be open for visitors. Information on campgrounds in Arkansas are available on
