Wisconsin campgrounds to reopen

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources officials plan to re-open state campgrounds next week.

The DNR announced Thursday state campgrounds will re-open Wednesday as coronavirus infection rates trend downward.

Park offices will remain closed, however, and campers can expect automatic touchless check-ins.

Reservations will be accepted by phone at 1-888-947-2757 and online to eliminate interaction with DNR staff. Group camping, shelters and amphitheaters will remain closed through June 30.

Most restrooms at state properties are now open although some water fountains remain shut down.

Firewood will not be available at the campgrounds.
