Chickasaw County Conservation is opening up their campsites on Friday – both Airport Lake Park and Split Rock Park will reopen at 6 a.m. that morning. The camping pads will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis. Chickasaw County Conservation Board Director Brian Moore says his team is just following what the Gov. Reynolds new guidelines are.
The campgrounds will only be supplying the pads – as showers, bathrooms, and playgrounds will all be closed and off limits to the patrons.
When asked about how worried Moore is about reopening, he was conflicted – he could see both sides.
County park campers are expected to maintain proper social distancing and proper hygiene. The restrictions continue as Moore is asking tenants to occupy every other camping pad and to only allow 10 maximum people on the site.

Alternatively, Floyd County Conservation is taking a bigger gap between their permission and the opening of their campgrounds.
FCC’s Heidi Reams says a tentative May 22nd open date is well on the table.
Also in New Hampton, the Boy Scout Campground in Mikkelson Park will be opening on Friday. The campsite will only allow 6 people per area and only self-contained camping set-ups will be able to use site.
