The temperature may be dropping, but that doesn’t mean the end of camping for those who are looking for a winter adventure: The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is making year-round camping reservations available at more than 20 state parks and forests.
Visitors can now plan ahead and have peace of mind before hitting the road, knowing that a site is waiting for them. In Door County, winter camping is available at Newport, Rock Island, Peninsula and Potawatomi state parks.
Campers will no longer find campsite self-registration envelopes at state properties. Instead, they should make reservations by visiting wisconsin.goingtocamp.com or calling 888.WI.PARKS. Campers can also book a campsite on their arrival day by reserving online before leaving home or calling while at the property. Same-day reservations will not be charged the $7.95 reservation fee.
Not all campsites and campground roads are plowed during the winter, so look for a message while booking your campsite or contact the property to get an update on property conditions.
