This weekend is your last chance to take the ferry to one of Wisconsin’s most remote state parks. October 14th is the final day the Karfi Ferry makes its daily trips to Rock Island State Park. Traffic was busy to the island this summer, with many of its 42 campsites booked from the Fourth of July to just after the Labor Day Weekend. Michael Cole spent much of his time on Rock Island in the park’s visitors center. He says once people hiked the park’s trails and checked out some of its historic structures, the two ferries to get there became well worth it.
Although much of the island and the ferry service shuts down after October 14th, Cole says there are people that still make the journey to Rock Island State Park to do more camping and even snowmobiling in the offseason.
