Following guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, Thomas Stone National Historic Site is increasing recreational access. The National Park Service (NPS) continues to work servicewide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis.

Certain areas of the park are now open Thursday - Sunday 10:00am - 4:00pm

  • Visitor Center parking lot
  • Park Grounds

Some facilities will remain closed

  • Visitor Center
  • Restrooms
  • All water fountains in park

Planning ahead is important

  • Keep yourself and others safe by making a plan before you come to the park
  • Plan your activities so that you can maintain social distancing
  • Since facilities are closed, bring everything that you'll need with you: water, snacks, hand sanitizer, and a face mask
  • Check out things to do to plan your visit

A few simple things can help ensure a safe visit

  • Most importantly, if you feel sick...stay home!
  • Once in the park, practice social distancing by maintaining at least six feet between yourself and others, and wear a face mask when social distancing cannot be maintained.

Visit responsibly

  • Do not attempt to access areas that are closed. They are closed for your safety.
  • If the parking area is full, don't park in the grass or along the road. A full parking lot means the area is crowded

Social Distancing While You Recreate

The health and safety of those who visit and work in national parks continues to be paramount, which is why we need you to be our partner in adopting social distancing practices. The CDC has offered guidance to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases while enjoying the outdoors.

Park rangers remain on duty to protect visitors and resources and uphold normal regulations. When recreating, please practice Leave No Trace principles, and avoid crowding and high-risk outdoor activities. Be prepared for limited access to services.

Be sure to park only in designated areas, pack out everything you bring into a park, plan a visit at times other than busiest of the day, and maintain social distance from others.

We are also encouraging you to find your virtual park! Explore national parks from the comfort of anywhere in the world through online galleries of photos, videos, webcams, podcasts, and sound recordings.
