Taking the reins of one the Wisconsin State Parks System’s most popular locations is part of what drew the newest Peninsula State Park Superintendent to the role. Eric Hyde was previously a conservation technician and the parks and trails manager for Washington County before taking over the role at Peninsula State Park. He will also serve as the superintendent for Newport State Park and Rock Island State Park. Having served the role since November, he is excited for the park to be brimming with visitors.
Peninsula State Park routinely draws over one million people every year, some Hyde expects will happen again thanks to the newest iteration of Eagle Tower and a number of other improvements at the property.
