MADISON, Wis. (AP) — More people are flocking to Wisconsin state parks amid the coronavirus pandemic. WMTV-TV reports that officials report a 12% increase in both visitation and camping.
The Department of Natural Resources says it pulled in more than $15 million from vehicle admission fees and trail passes from January through August.
That’s up 21% from the same period in 2019.
Renee Hable, of Madison, said she and her husband had to find a new adventure, so they challenged themselves to visit every Wisconsin state park in Wisconsin. The only park they missed was Rock Island in Door County because it remains closed.
