Firewood notice: Due to the potential of carrying harmful tree pests and diseases, firewood from out of state or from more than 25 miles away is not allowed on Wisconsin State Park or Forest properties. Also, firewood that has been in the Wisconsin emerald ash borer quarantined area is not allowed on properties outside of the quarantined area. Please buy firewood at or near the park or forest where you are going. Call the DNR toll-free Firewood Hotline, 1-877-303-WOOD (1-877-303-9663) for information before packing for a trip. For more information, see firewood facts, rules and advice or ask the park or forest office. Maps are available to view the 25-mile radius of allowable firewood on state properties.
Sturgeon Bay Road Construction: The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will be resurfacing the Highway 42/57 (Bayview) Bridge in Sturgeon Bay from March 4 through June 30, 2013. There is a detour route through Sturgeon Bay to reconnect to the highway in the northern part of the city. For more information, please see Sturgeon Bay detour.
A vehicle admission sticker is required year-round. When the park office is closed, use the self-registration pay kiosk to buy admission stickers. Any annual sticker purchases will be mailed to you. If you self-register for an annual sticker please submit a check with your address or print legibly on the envelope for accurate mailing.
Water audit: The DNR received a grant from the Wisconsin Coastal Management program to conduct a water audit at Peninsula State Park. How is water used at the park? What are the most effective ways to reduce water use at the park in the short and long term? These are some of the questions the pilot program will help to answer. More information.
