State offices will be closed Monday and Tuesday as the state celebrates Patriots Day and endures a furlough day designed to save money.

Maine parks will be open for both the holiday and the furlough day, according to the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands.

Some Maine state campgrounds are open, including Sebago Lake, Bradbury Mountain, Camden Hills, Lake St. George, and Cobscook Bay, according to a statement from the bureau. Visitors should call ahead.

Maine forest rangers also will be on duty.

However, most state offices will be closed for the state’s ninth furlough of the biennium.

The last furlough day this fiscal year for state agencies and offices will be Friday, May 28.

“Please plan ahead for any services you may need from state agencies during this and the other state government shutdown days,” Gov. John Baldacci said in a statement.
