Northern Wisconsin  ~~~~~~  April 23, 2021  (LSN)   With 49 state parks, more than 500 boat launches, 15 state forests, 44 state trails, over 5,000 campsites and much more – your springtime adventure awaits.

As we usher in a new season, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has several operations updates on State Parks and other DNR-managed lands outlined below.

Starting April 30, the following changes will be implemented:

  • Observation towers and playgrounds will be open
  • Volunteer group sizes will be increased to 50 people
  • Capacity for open-air shelters, amphitheaters and outdoor group campgrounds will be increased to 100 people
  • Non-department led special event capacity will increase from 50 to 100. Special event permit applicants may work with property staff to phase larger events with capacities over 100
  • Stand-alone concession facilities will open to the public at 50% capacity including staff

In addition to the operations updates, the following amenities continue to be available to state park visitors:

  • Family camping (100% reservable with auto check-in)
  • Outdoor group camping, maximum capacity of 100 people (100% reservable with auto check-in)
  • Bathroom and dump station facilities
  • Accessible cabins
  • Drive-up window service
  • Concessions, including firewood sales

Rock Island will remain closed to all visitors through Thursday, May 27 to allow for repairs to the dock including dredging of the dock area. Camping reservation holders will be contacted directly and those scheduled to arrive on Wednesday, May 26 or Thursday, May 27, will be given the opportunity to shorten their stay to arrive on Friday, May 28.

Indoor group campgrounds and indoor shelters, including the Flambeau River State Forest yurt, will also remain closed through June 1. Wisconsin state park and property visitor capacity closures will remain in place to help manage overcrowding and promote social distancing.

The following State Natural Areas are now open:

  • Pewits Nest
  • Parfrey's Glen

Spring Reminders

Rain coupled with an increase in use can sometimes be damaging to public spaces and natural resources. While DNR staff try to provide signage and condition updates whenever possible, please be sure to stay on trails and seek dry trail alternatives if you find muddy conditions.

Visitors are encouraged to practice social distancing and to wear a face covering when a distance of 6 feet or greater cannot be achieved.

State park visitors can purchase annual admission passes online, over the phone by calling local properties directly or in-person at self-registration stations at individual properties

A Bloody Delightful Musical Comedy

Robert McKenzie 0 3588 Article rating: No rating

Something strange and interesting has started to grow this week at the Paramount Theatre in the downtown Waterfront District. From the people who brought you this winter’s hit musical Mamma Mia, comes another Broadway monster hit - Little Shop of Horrors! Little Shop opened it’s doors on Tuesday July 30th to a hungry audience who were dying to get a glimpse of Audrey II, the giant man eating plant featured in this musical tale. This musical comedy tells the story of Seymour (played by Robert Perrier), a poor schmuck who lives on Skid Row and is employed at a flower shop owned by Mr. Mushnik (Kirk Maurer) along with Audrey (Tegin Menei), the young lady Seymour loves. Seymour lives a less than happy life on Skid Row, until one fateful day when, after a total eclipse of the sun, he finds a strange, Venus flytrap like plant that he lovingly names the Audrey II. Little Shop may seem like a goofy, kind of gory musical about a man-eating plant, but it tells the story of a young man so determined to live a better life, he doesn’t realize the things he’ll have to do, and sacrifice, to get there.
