Gateway Arch NP is a misnomer.

Everglades (distant third)

Now that I know about the bird obsession, I can finally understand how this is anywhere close....

Gateway Arch NP is a misnomer.

Used to be, until Feb. 2018 when it was officially redesignated from a national memorial to a national park.

BTW there are lots of lists online about which parks are open and which aren't. This is the one I've found to be the most accurate: https://rvshare.com/national-state-park-closures
I kept checking manually each one, so thank you for this.
Oh how I can't wait to get back to the southwest!

The other issue I'm monitoring is southwest state's restrictions on visiting NY'ers, 14d quarantine etc.
I've been looking mostly at AZ, but in general I haven't found any lifting of these restrictions, or even discussions of it.
Anyone see anything about this?

Not planning on going for another month, though I'm hoping that by then, all those NPs will be open (at least the main attractions therein).
At least UT has opened some, but I'd still be going through AZ...

Most states are lifting those restrictions. Seems that most everyone wants to be open (to some extent) by Memorial Day.

I haven't found a list, I just google specific states for updates.

SD,ND,NE have been open the entire time, for those that haven't been yet, could be a great option.
