Proposed Plan to Reopen Parks

On April 21, 2020, NH Governor Chris Sununu announced the formation of an Economic Re-opening Task Force to develop proposals for safely reopening the state for business.

A draft proposal to open state parks, campgrounds, historic sites, trails and beaches was presented to the Task Force on April 27, 2020 by NH Division of Parks and Recreation. The proposal outlined under what conditions park sites and facilities could open in the future while ensuring the protection, health and safety of the public and the parks staff. Beaches, other sites and facilities will remain closed until the Governor finalizes the guidance documents and determines appropriate timing of such action, when they should open and under what conditions.
