DNR Inns, Campgrounds and Cabins Reopen Friday

All of Indiana’s state-operated inns, campgrounds and cabins will reopen Friday in time for the Memorial Day weekend as coronavirus restrictions are eased across much of Indiana.

The state Department of Natural Resources says all its campgrounds, property-operated cabins, camper cabins and inns will reopen today under the eased restrictions approved by Governor Eric Holcomb.

DNR spokesman JB Brindle said the agency has 7,701 camping sites around the state.

Brindle said the DNR resumed taking camping reservations online Thursday morning.

By early Thursday afternoon, about 70 percent of those sites had seen new reservations for the holiday weekend.

The DNR says swimming beaches will open Saturday at its properties, but public outdoor park pools remain closed.
