Missouri’s 91 state parks have had a spike in traffic during the coronavirus era. David Kelly, Deputy Director of Missouri State Parks, says camping reservations are also climbing as residents stay closer to home.

Popular parks include Bennett Spring State Park near Lebanon, Ha Ha Tonka State Park in Camdenton, Meramec State Park near eastern Missouri’s Sullivan, and the Current River State Park near southern Missouri’s Salem. Beginning July 1, all state campgrounds will be fully reopened
