State park campgrounds see boom in summer reservations

Those planning to camp at state parks in Door County this summer will likely find campsites harder to come by.  Reservations for spring and summer have filled up quickly.    That comes as winter weekend camping has been very strong, with the exception of the recent cold snap that sent daytime temperatures into the single digits to below zero and the extreme windchills.  Eric Hyde, the Superintendent of Peninsula State Park in Fish Creek, expects record bookings from Memorial Day through Labor Day.


Wisconsin State Parks saw 2020 campground reservations increased six-percent from 2019.  Overall, the park system hosted nearly 21,000,000 visitors last year.
