State parks are open for business

DES MOINES– Calls are coming in to state park officers faster than they can be answered. Yes, Iowa’s state parks, including those like Honey Creek and Elk Rock that are on federal land, are open.
That’s the message being relayed during the federal government shutdown.
“It can be confusing about what is open and what isn’t, especially for parks on federal reservoirs,” said Jim Lawson, State Parks Bureau supervisor for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. “But Iowa’s state parks are open for business as usual.”
For a listing of state parks, go to www.iowadnr.gov/parks.
