Arizona State Parks Closed by Budget Cuts


(Phoenix, AZ -- 4:20 PM - June 30, 2009) - The Arizona State Parks department will begin to ask campers to leave 13 State Parks' campgrounds at 4:00 PM today in order to close down the parks before the midnight deadline for closing all the State Parks. Parks will be closed and not reopen until the department has operating authority.

In order to reduce the economic impact for two rural communities, the Arizona State Parks department staff have signed special use applications with the City of Show Low and the City of Lake Havasu. These agreements would allow each City to operate, monitor, maintain and control the parks. Show Low's Fool Hollow Lake State Recreation Area and Lake Havasu State Park (Windsor Beach) will operate under these special use agreements through July 5th or will end when the State Parks' budget is authorized.

These permits would include the legal and safe parking of all visitors, use and function of the launch ramps, access and maintenance of the restroom facilities, trash pickup, emergency medical response and public safety. The agreements begin at midnight on June 30 until July 5th.

If there is no operating budget by July 1, 2009, Kartchner Caverns State Park will be closed and cave tours will be cancelled, rescheduled or refunded.
