According to a press release sent out by the Louisiana Department of Recreation and Tourism, 'all buildings and overnight facilities at Louisiana State Parks are temporarily closed, as are all buildings at all state historic sites.' The order for the temporarily closure went into effect on March 24th at 5:00 pm, and will remain until Monday, April 13th. No new reservations will be accepted until that date.

However, gates will remain open at State Parks from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily, which will allow access to roads and established trails. Read the entire press release here.
