Caleb Franks started this petition to Governor Tim Walz and

As Minnesotans we love the outdoors! Camping is a cherished tradition for many thousands of us. Currently, Executive Order 20-33 has closed recreational camping in campgrounds and dispersed camping on all DNR managed land and in private campgrounds as well. (With a few exceptions for year round residents.) 

Governor Walz we ask that you open camping in Minnesota on all DNR managed lands and in private campgrounds. Camping is a natural form of social distancing. Many of us go camping for the solitude it can provide. We believe that camping can be a productive outlet for the stress we all feel during this trying time, and that it will not increase the spread of any disease. 

Let us get outside, go camping, and enjoy our beautiful state.

Please share this petition with your friends who love camping in our great State.
