“On Wednesday, April 29, 2020 Governor Murphy announced that on Saturday, May 2, 2020 State and County Parks may begin to open. It is important to remember that individuals still must take precautions when out in public places. It is important to social distance, wear a cloth mask, and wash your hands frequently. Continue to do your part, so we can slow the spread,” said Kevin Thomas, Health Officer.

Rules to Follow Under Executive Order 133 At All State Parks and Forests:  

A. Employees  and  visitors  should  wear  cloth  face  coverings while in the State Park or Forest in all settings where other social distancing measures are difficult  to  maintain,  except  where  doing  so  would  inhibit  that  individual’s  health  or  where  the  individual is under two years of age;

B. Available parking must be limited at all State Parks and Forests at 50% of the maximum capacity at one time, and visitors shall be prohibited from parking in undesignated areas, including in roadways and other undesignated areas. 

C. No picnicking shall be allowed, including on picnic blankets in signed picnic areas, and no picnic blankets, chairs, coolers, and other such personal property shall be carried into any State Parks and Forests. 

D. Visitors must practice social distancing and stay six feet apart whenever practicable, excluding immediate family members, caretakers, household members, or romantic partners.

E. No organized or contact activities or sports shall be allowed; and 

F. Gatherings of individuals, including in parks, are prohibited.
