Minnesota State Parks might shut down July 1,2011

'Contingency plan' for state parks in the works if government shuts down in Minnesota

If there is to be a MN government shutdown, it would begin on July 1,2011 which just happens to be a Friday of a long Fourth of July weekend. Campgrounds and picnic sites typically would be packed.
Are plans being made to keep the parks open until July 5?
Are plans being made to close the parks on July 1?
At this point, state officials aren’t saying.

That doesn’t sound like much of a plan, given that thousands of people will be descending on the state parks for the long holiday weekend.
It will do no good, for people to call the DNR, individual parks, the Department of Tourism. The answer will be clear – well, sort of clear.
“We’ve just started working on a contingency plan.’’

When the US gov shutdown was threatened the plan was to throw people out of the national parks on Monday.
