Sites now available for groups up to 50 people. 

Group camping for up to 50 people will again be allowed at Wisconsin’s state parks beginning Monday, July 13, state Department of Natural Resources officials announced Tuesday.

The DNR also will begin staffing camp hosts at state park campgrounds, the agency said, and will resume firewood sales at select state parks. 

In addition, the agency said, it will begin allowing a limited number of special events of up to 50 people at state parks as well as unreserved use of open-air shelters. 

Camping reservations are required and can be made online or by calling 1-888-947-2757. Same-day reservations can be made by calling the same number or through the department’s online reservation system.  

DNR officials said state park visitors should practice social distancing of 6 feet, refrain from gathering in large groups, should travel only within their home communities and should follow park rules. 

State parks were shut down in April because of concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic. They were subsequently reopened, but with guidelines in place to slow the spread of coronavirus.
