Arkansas State Parks
Since March, Arkansas's state parks have seen a record number of visitors.

Following a record year as more people jumped at the chance to spend time outdoors during the pandemic, Arkansas State Parks is cutting back hours and operations at its visitor centers, museums, restaurants and two marinas in response to a surge in COVID-19 cases.
