In accordance with CDC guidelines and state recommendations pertaining to COVID-19, we want to share the following important information:  

Camping at both Lake Orient and Mormon Trail Park is available with the following restrictions:

  • Campers must maintain proper physical distance (minimum 6' separation)
  • Campsites are to be occupied by the tenants of that site only at all times 
  • No groups larger than 10

The shower house at Lake Orient is open.

NOTE - The pit latrines on the southeast side of Mormon Trail Park and at Lake Orient remain closed until further notice.  While the campground pit latrines at Mormon Trail Park are open, no hand washing station or hand sanitizer is available at these facilities.  Park guests should be prepared to provide their own sanitizing supplies.

Cleaning frequency and thoroughness at both parks have been increased, however, use of any of these facilities is at park guest's own risk.

Dump stations at Orient and Bridgewater are open to the public.  Use of nitrile gloves is recommended while using these stations.

Park green spaces, trails, and lakes remain open for public use & park hours are not altered at this time.

Adair County Conservation Board feels that these measures are in the best interest of public and staff safety.  We will continue to assess the situation and additional updates will be announced as they become available.

Thank you for your support and understanding during this difficult time.  Please contact the Adair County Conservation Board office at 641-743-6450 if you have questions.
