USNPS halts all fee collection; more park facilities close

More and more parks shut down visitor facilities Wednesday, closing campgrounds, restrooms, and ending ranger-led programs in an effort to confront the spread of coronavirus, while Interior Secretary David Bernhardt encouraged visitors to "find refuge" in the park system and waived entrance fees to make it more appealing.

"This small step makes it a little easier for the American public to enjoy the outdoors in our incredible National Parks,” said Bernhardt.  "Our vast public lands that are overseen by the department offer special outdoor experiences to recreate, embrace nature, and implement some social distancing."
