Fees Now Waived For All State Parks And Trails

(Madison) Fees are now waived for all Wisconsin State Parks and Trails that continue to remain open to the public throughout the COVID-19 outbreak. The Department of Natural Resources says staying at home as much as possible is the best way to lower the coronavirus infection rates but should people need a place with space, getting outdoors has both physical and mental benefits. The DNR does ask people to not congregate at restrooms, self-registration stations or electronic kiosks. Additionally, do not gather in groups of 10 or more people and maintain six feet of distance from others. Parks, law enforcement and property staff will also continue to provide routine sweeps and state park system properties.
