As the leaves fall out of the trees, visitors still flock to Door County’s state parks under the right conditions. Potawatomi State Park Superintendent Erin Brown Stender says now is an interesting time of the year because people do a wide range of activities.
Brown Stender says that regardless of what Potawatomi experience guests choose, weather matters. Under sunny skies, Columbus Day weekend was hectic. The week after saw cold and rain, with visitation estimated to have fallen by over 50 percent. Overall, it has been a strong year for state parks. Brown Stender says you can expect to see 2021 annual passes on sale by December, but in-person purchases could be limited to mostly weekends. The stickers will be available online to buy.
