State Park Office Schedules

PRATT  – While all state parks and wildlife areas are open for camping and other outdoor recreation throughout December, there will be some days when state park offices will not be open during regular office hours. But don’t worry, state park daily vehicle and camping permits can be purchased at self-pay stations at any time.

Normally, state park office winter hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. However, all park offices will be closed on Dec. 12-13 while staff attend a division meeting. Regular office hours will resume on Dec. 14.

Over the Christmas and New Year holidays, Dec. 23, 2017-Jan. 1, 2018, state park office hours will be limited, so call ahead if you plan to visit. One exception to this is, on January 1, 2018, many state parks will be hosting First Day Hike events. Visit to find a First Day Hike event at a state park near you.

The Guided First Day Hike program is sponsored by America’s State Parks. The First Day Hikes offer individuals and families an opportunity to begin the New Year connecting with the outdoors by taking a healthy hike on New Year’s Day at a nearby state park. First Day Hikes offer a great way to get outside, exercise, and enjoy nature with friends and family. Stay tuned for more information.
