Virginia’s Prince William Forest Park is closed and is expected to remain closed for more than two weeks due to damage from Friday’s (March 2) wind storm, the National Park Service announced in a news release.

“Fallen and hazardous trees, downed power lines and damage to historic cabin camps from last week’s wind storm have prompted the National Park Service to immediately close Prince William Forest Park to all use out of concern for public safety,” the agency said.

The park is expected to remain closed for two to three weeks, according to the Prince Williams Times.

“After addressing the most immediate safety risks, crews will work strategically to begin reopening the most heavily used areas of the park,” the news release states.

The Prince William Forest RV Campground on Va. 234 remains open, but some areas within the campground are currently closed off.
