Wisconsin parks resume hours

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — State parks will resume normal hours this weekend but visitors won’t have access to bathrooms until early next month, the Department of Natural Resources announced.

The parks have been operating with reduced daily hours and have been closed completely on Wednesdays as the state grapples with the coronavirus pandemic.

The DNR said all parks will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. starting today subject to property-specific capacity restrictions, which can be found at: https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/Lands/apip/capacity.aspx.

Patrons won’t have access to bathrooms until June 3, however. Towers, shelters, playgrounds, nature centers, headquarters, entrance stations and concession buildings will also remain closed.
