Camp sites reopen, social distancing continues at state parks

On June 10, campgrounds reopened on state lands, with special conditions to ensure the continued safety of visitors and staff. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) states that visitors will notice automatic, touchless check-ins, and new signs encouraging social distancing. Park offices will remain closed to the public.

This marks the latest stage of development in the COVID saga for the Badger State’s parks and campgrounds. On May 1, Gov. Tony Evers ordered the reopening of several state parks after 40 were ordered closed in April. In the early days of Safer at Home, visitor numbers ballooned in the parks, as did litter and instances of vandalism. Now, although the state-wide Safer at Home order no longer exists, parks are continuing a measured return to normalcy.
