TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The 2020 camping season for the Vigo County Parks and Recreation Department, originally scheduled to begin May 1, has been officially delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The tentative goal for the department is to open camping May 15. Officials will reevaluate the date for camping closer to May 1.

At this time, the Vigo County Parks are open; however, all playgrounds, shelters and restrooms are closed. This includes all rentals during the stay-at-home order.  

All programs for the month of April have also been suspended. 

All community members are required when using the parks to follow social distancing guidelines.
