Tourism steady despite high lake levels

Tourism at Newport State Park is steady this summer even though rising water levels on Lake Michigan have caused problems. The dark sky viewing at the park has seen this biggest increase in popularity this year due to the International Dark Sky Designation. Newport State Park is one of 18 designated state parks in the U.S. and only the second in the Midwest. Park Manager Michelle Hefty says even though lake levels are higher this summer the park is still making the most of it.


Newport State Park has the Perseus Meteor Shower viewing coming up on the night of August 12th.
