State parks open for camping next week

You will be able to put up a tent or pull in your RV next week as Door County’s five state parks on the mainland will allow camping for the first time this year. Campers will notice some changes when they come this year including automatic touchless check-in and new signs encouraging visitors to recreate responsibly. While restrooms will be open, state park towers, shelters, offices, and other facilities will remain closed. Newport State Park Manager Michelle Hefty says she is excited for when campers can officially return June 10th.

Hefty says the number of people visiting the remote park north of Ellison Bay has been about average even with campers having to wait an extra few weeks to go camping there. Located near Washington Island, Rock Island State Park will remain closed until the end of the month.
