More on Federal Parks, Waters Open Despite Shutdown
Anchorages in federal areas, such as Biscayne National Park, are still available to boaters, but any office or facilities may be shuttered. Access to state and county anchorages and docks, such as John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Florida and Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center in North Carolina, are not affected by the Federal shutdown. Our thanks to Kevin Wadlow and EcoWatch for these reports.
