Federal shutdown doesn’t affect Nevada parks
October 3, 2013
While the federal government is shutting down national parks and forests, all 23 of Nevada's state parks, including two in Douglas County, remain open.
"Autumn is awesome in Nevada's state parks for viewing fall colors, fishing, camping or setting up a hunting base camp," said Deputy Administrator Eric Johnson.
Campgrounds are open throughout the winter months and showers are available at locations with heated facilities. For more information visit parks.nv.gov.
Mormon Station State Historic Park in Genoa and Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, which includes Cave Rock, Spooner Backcountry and Sand Harbor are open. The museum at Mormon Station closes for the winter in mid-October.
