On Friday, James H. “Sloppy” Floyd Park issued a statement on social media concerning the large number of visitors at the state park in Chattooga County.

The statement reads: James H. Floyd has experienced large crowds on pretty weekends, Park staff may temporarily limit access to ensure social distancing and protect the health of the public and our employees. Please understand that admission may be limited for several hours and will reopen once there is available capacity. This applies to day-use, not guests with reservations. Thank you for understanding as we keep everyone safe.

With Memorial Day weekend and warmer temperatures larger than normal crowds are expected.
