Room tax collections up in Door County

Despite over 30 inches of snow wiping out two early spring weekends in Door County, room tax collections in 2018 were up again. The latest numbers from the Door County Tourism Zone show an increase in room tax collections of 5.2 percent over 2017. The biggest reason for the increase was lodging owners being able to charge an average of $9 a room more in 2018, which made up for the approximately 5000 unit dip in occupancy. Jon Jarosh from the Door County Visitor Bureau says the news is good for tourism.


Over the last nine years, room tax collections have seen a cumulative increase of over 60 percent, or approximately $1.8 million.
