Property Master Plans Kohler-Andrae State Park Plan Amendment

Kohler Andrae State Park Plan Amendment entrance

Planning Update

A master plan amendment review process for Kohler-Andrae State Park is underway. Kohler-Andrae State Park (998 acres) is located in Sheboygan County and consists of two adjacent Wisconsin state parks, located a few miles south of the City of Sheboygan. Terry Andrae State Park was established in 1927 and John Michael Kohler State Park was established in 1966. They include over two miles of beach and sand dunes along Lake Michigan. To simplify management and use, the parks are managed as one property. The existing master plan was adopted in 1989.

In 2015, DNR received a request from the Kohler Company that identified approximately five acres of Kohler- Andrae State Park lands to use in support of their proposed public golf course to be located to the north of the park. Specifically, Kohler proposed to construct and maintain the following on park lands: 1) a roadway and roundabout to access its lands; 2) utility access; and 3) a maintenance facility. In 2016, the department prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement that described in more detail the proposed developments. In June 2017, the Natural Resources Board approved the department’s recommendation to initiate a master plan amendment process to consider these proposed changes.

As the amendment process progresses, updates will be available with each major step in the planning process. Please check back periodically. Thank you for your interest in this amendment process.

Public Open House
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will hold a public open house on the proposed amendment process on Thursday, August 24, 2017, from 5 to 7 p.m. at:
