Are parks open? Are campgrounds open? Are community gardens open?

Last Updated: 04/13/2022

State parks and forests are open.

There is no capacity limit for outdoor gatherings.

In New Jersey, face masks are no longer required in most outdoor and indoor settings. The Department of Health recommends wearing a face mask whenever you have symptoms of COVID-19, tested positive, were recently exposed to someone with COVID-19, or live in a county with elevated or "high" COVID community levels.

NOTE: Social distancing, masking, and other safety measures are still required in high-risk congregate settings such as healthcare settings and correctional facilities.


Private residential campgrounds may open. Unvaccinated individuals are encouraged to wear face coverings and social distance.

Campgrounds in State Parks and Forests are open.

Reservations are currently being accepted for family tent and trailer campsites, group campsites, primitive campsites, RV sites, cabins, shelters, lean-tos, and wilderness campsites.
