Business continues at Peninsula State Park despite shutdown

Despite a government shutdown that has closed all national parks, state parks such as Peninsula State Park in Fish Creek are remaining open and continuing to operate as normal. According to Steve Strucely, the business manager for the Friends of Peninsula State Park, there has not been an increased volume of visitors to the park, dispelling the notion that those who would normally travel to national parks in the area have been making their way up to Fish Creek instead. Strucely instead said snowy weather is a big factor in how many visitors make the trip.



Peninsula State Park was established in 1910 by the Wisconsin Legislature and is one of a few state parks in Door County. Winter activities are among the most popular in the park.
