WI State Parks Capacity Limits Increase

With the big holiday weekend coming up, the Wisconsin DNR recently announced that outdoor capacities for events, activities, and outdoor facilities such as group campgrounds, open-air shelters, and amphitheaters is increasing at properties across the state park system. Effective immediately, volunteer group sizes can increase to 350 people outdoors with small working groups of 50 or less. Naturalalist activities, education programs, “Friends” hikes, and candlelight events are now permitting up to 350 people if they are outdoors. Outdoor-only concession activities can increase to 350 people. Outdoor group campsites will increase to maximum capacity or 350. Open-air shelters or amphitheaters will increase to maximum capacity or 350. Special event group sizes will also increase to 350. Even with these easing restrictions, state park visitors are still expected to practice social distancing and follow the latest CDC guidelines. DNR facilites remaining closed to the public include nature centers, indoor group camps, and the headquarters. Annual park admission passes can be purchased online, over the phone by calling local properties directly, through open drive-up windows, or through self-registration stations on-site. In some parks, there may still be capacity closures in place to promote safe social distancing.
