I just got an email from Gulf Island National Seashore that my reservation is canceled for Davis Bayou campground. They are closing it for 10 days starting tomorrow the 19th. I would think Fort Pickens is too. It's probably too soon to say about May.

Well if they have to close it, and they don't, then 10 days is a sensible length of time. Unlike the 60 days FL state parks are closing which is just moronic.

I was trying to book on Recreation.gov today and had problems with my computer. I sent them an e-mail asking how to make their system work for Watsadler on .rtwell on the SC/Georgia line. Got a note back from a very nice lady saying

" Please be aware that due to the COVID-19 (corona virus) Watsadler is temporarily closed due to public safety concerns"

Any updates on Alabama? I’m hitting the road in a couple of days for White Oak (creek) in Eufaula.
It’s showing available online. I noticed that Gunter hill is unavailable until May 1st.

I left Gunter Hill this morning. They are the park that started this thread. They told me they were closing down and I was the last new reservation. May 1st may be the plan, I don't know.

I've received two refund notices this morning in my e-mail for Recreation.gov.

One for a COE park on Lake Texoma, Tulsa District, Burns Run West, in mid-April - closed for "Public Safety Concerns" The campground us unavailable until May 11. Burns Run East is taking reservations during that time period. The park normally opens on Apr 1.

Buncombe Creek, another COE park on Lake Texoma normally opening on Apr 1 is delaying opening until May 11.

Juniper Point, a COE Lake Texoma park which normally opens on May 1 is delaying opening until May 11.

Another COE park - Clear Lake on Lake Lavon, Fort Worth District, cancelled and refunded my reservation with no explaination. Checking the Recreation.gov site, Clear Lake appears to not be opening on Apr 1 as is normal. Opening delayed to May 2.

The other two COE campgrounds on Lake Lavon, East Fork and Lavonia, are taking reservations from today into May. No closures indicated.

No reason given 100% refund in both cases.

Everything in California is closing fast. The reservoirs were taking reservations a week ago. Now their websites are completely offline.

I am a current camp host at the COE Campground in my signature. We are closed indefinitely per our sign posted at the entry gate. Fortunately the hosts here are allowed to stay here during the shutdown and will be here for immediate opening when this pandemic is over.

I have reservations at a COE park near Texarkana, TX tonight. I just called to ask if the park is open. I told her I have reservations for tonight. There was a big pause. She said registered campers are allowed in, but no visitors. ****. That means I have to cancel the orgy our club had scheduled for tonight. That's just a joke. The phone call part is true.
