MADISON, WI — State Park camping season officially begins on June 10 after the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources announced they are reopening state campgrounds starting on Wednesday.
Camping reservations will be accepted by phone (1-888-947-2757) and online only to eliminate face to face interaction with DNR staff.
Same-day camping reservations are also now available by phone (1-888-947-2757) and the online reservation system.
Check-in is no longer necessary at the office or visitor station when coming to a property. Please proceed directly to your campsite and begin setup. Property staff will visit sites to monitor occupancy.
Most restrooms at state properties are now open.
Some remote water fountains may be closed in the day use area of the park or have the bubbler turned off and have access to the water spigot only.
All other facilities will remain closed, including towers, shelters, playgrounds, nature centers, headquarters, contact stations, and concessions.
Equipment rentals are unavailable at this time.
