The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has announced that campgrounds in Wisconsin state parks will re-open on Wednesday, June 10th. There will be some special conditions in place to ensure the safety of staff and visitors.
Rock Island, Pewits Nest, Parfrey’s Glen, Dells of the Wisconsin River, and Gibraltar Rock remain completely closed to the public.
Most restrooms are now open for use, but all other facilities–such as towers, shelters, and playgrounds–remain closed until further notice.
Visitors are reminded to practice social distancing of 6 feet, refrain from congregating in large groups, travel only within your home communities and follow all existing state park rules and guidelines. Visitors are also encouraged to wear masks in situations where social distancing is difficult.
