If there is a federal shutdown, not only will visits to parks themselves be curtailed, even planning for future visits will go on hold.

RV News Service staff interviewed a National Park Service (NPS) spokeswoman this morning and were told that parks will definitely close their gates if there is a federal shutdown. Additionally, all NPS operated websites will go dark, as website and park access are both considered “non emergency services,” which are the only services available should federal operations close up.

RVers and campers already staying at campgrounds and NPS accommodations will be given 48 hours to move out should the government shutters close. If Congress cannot reach an agreement, the potential shutdown could begin at midnight, Saturday morning.
