Campers will have to make reservations ahead of time, won’t be able to purchase firewood on-site and all buildings, observation towers, playgrounds, concessions, and rentals will be closed.
But bathrooms will be open as will the trails, boat launches, beaches, and outdoor recreation areas.
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Secretary Preston Cole says if parks reach capacity, just as has been done since they reopened, they may be closed temporarily until crowding eases.
