Closing them was usually because of the local health departments not fully understanding the nature of camping. Some states outright forced them closed, but in WI the SPs were only closed for a few months until they came up with a plan. Most of the counties that closed the private facilities also realized it didn't make sense. In the county we frequent the most, the CG owners got together and made an agreed upon plan to keep public bathrooms and common areas closed, as well as offices where they could. The county approved it just before the season started. We didn't miss any camping in 2020, just some activities were not available to us.
