Camping in Webster County will once again be possible on May 15.

The RV sites at John F. Kennedy Memorial Park and Gypsum City OHV Park will open at 8 a.m.

Only campers with self-contained restroom units will be permitted.

All modern restrooms, shower houses, shelter, lodges, overnight accommodations and playgrounds will remain closed.

There will be no firewood sales, canoe/kayak rentals, cabin reservations, or concessions offered at any of the parks.
