Stickers needed at state parks

You will need to make sure you have your annual pass sticker on your car the next time you visit one of Door County’s five state parks beginning on Friday. Governor Tony Evers directed the Department of Natural Resources on Tuesday to reopen several state parks, forests, and recreational areas that were closed in early April. None of the local state parks were affected by the closure, but fees have been waived since March 24th since outdoor recreation was deemed an essential activity during the Governor’s Safer at Home order. Boat launches and trails will be open to those practicing social distancing, but restrooms and other buildings will remain closed. Sarah Hoye from the DNR says some state parks like Whitefish Dunes will have capacity limits.

If you plan on heading out this weekend, you will have to buy your annual park sticker ahead of time by calling the DNR. There is currently no information on day passes.
