Dark sky designation pays dividends for Newport State Park

Visitors are streaming in to Newport State Park in recent years thanks to the site’s designation as a haven for stargazers. Gene Kenny, from the Friends of Newport State Park, says it is helping the park gain traction against other Door County forests, namely Peninsula State Park.


The park was a great location to view the year’s first super moon Saturday evening as it coincided with the annual twilight hike event. Due to the warmer weather this year, there was no skiing or snowshoeing on the Fern Trail.
