Ohio has again move the state park camping out to June 1, This is the third date they have given us. Not sure it will ever be opened.
That's good WVhillbilly. Here in NC, everything is closed. Some private campgrounds were opening ahead of MORON PHASE One. NF closed. And the NC State Parks...None of the NF here have been closed.
Dispersed camping only.

"Camping will be restricted and enforced to include - no day visitors permitted, beach areas closed, boat ramps closed, no 24-hour access and gate hours enforced. Shower houses are available, but comfort stations will be closed." - Director of NC State Parks, Dwayne Patterson
You have to place a reservation to camp. If you reserve a camp spot, it may be cancelled. Most camp areas are still closed.
This process in place until August, or until the mood strikes Dwayne Patterson to change it.
We camp in TN too Right now the fear factor may be restricting travel between states. Read stories of RVers unable to get service, tire repair or replace, mechanical work - in some areas because of fear of strangers.I know of several nice campgrounds in TN that are open. How far are you from Tellico Plains?
Hopefully I'll be in TN next weekend.
On two wheels, but I'm wearing a full face helmet so that should qualify as a mask.
For those interested in PA parks and campground openings. They have finally put up a site at DCNR that actually has some dates, yet still some open endedness. You click the county the park is in. I assume you have to take it along with the state map of what counties are in what phase since they indicate the DCNR will follow the state phased plan. An example. Somerset county was just announced yesterday as moving from red to yellow phase on May 15, and they show state park campgrounds in Somerset opening May 22 with an actual date posted.
Out east, Pike County is still in red phase and they have not made any indication of when it will move to yellow. When you click on Pike county on the DCNR map it lists Promised Land state park campgrounds as closed but if you go to the park specific site it seems to indicate campground opening as May 22. Knowing how the state and DCNR operate that could mean one of two things. They already know Wolf will announce on May 15 Pike is going red to yellow on May 22, or they're just playing it by ear in case he does and if not will then just cancel reservations and not open.
That is the problem I have with the entire PA response to this. Its not so much the closures and edicts, their constitutionality non withstanding, it's the damn typical PA policy of everything having to be privileged information administered by some super secret squirrel policy, keeping folks in the dark to the last minute.
We have ressies at a private CG in Indiana for the first week of June... The owners said they were still getting contacted for meetings and there's much that was still up in the air.Getting stir crazy and ready to camp. Have you heard any good news about when campgrounds are due to open in your area?
As it stands NOW, target date for Virginia state park overnight camping is Friday 5-22-2020, appears cabins/shelters etc still closed until 6-10...
