Camping in the Maine State Park in Alabama is a big deal.
The campgrounds are about an hour north of Huntsville, the home of Alabama’s Senate.
The Alabama Department of Natural Resources says the campgrounds in the park are open to the public for up to five nights a week, although there are restrictions on camping.
But, as of Monday, that wasn’t the case in the campsites at the Maines.
The park says that only four sites are open, and that they have been temporarily closed to visitors for security reasons.
The DNR says it’s working to open the rest of the campground in 2019.
There are a few campsites that are still open, however, as well as a few picnic areas that have been converted into tent camping.
There is one camping site in a small village in Maine County.
The main campground is about half an hour east of Huntsfield.
The Maines is one of the last state parks in Alabama to be completely opened.
