DEP continues to re-open Florida State Parks as part of the phased plan to re-open Florida. As these parks re-open areas, experiences and amenities, DEP will be taking measures to ensure the protection of staff and the public. During this phase of re-opening, visitors should expect limited hours, capacity and amenities. Staff, volunteers and visitors are asked to observe social distancing recommendations, such as staying 6 ft. away from others, avoiding groups and avoiding frequently touched surfaces.
