Conditions as of Tuesday, October 6, 2015:


All hiking and bike trails are open. A state trail pass is required off-road bikers at Peninsula State Park in addition to a vehicle admission sticker. The annual trail pass is valid on all ski, bike and horse trails in Wisconsin State Parks that require the trail pass for users 16 years and older.

Observation tower: The observation tower located in Peninsula State Park, known as Eagle Tower, is closed because of structural concerns. At this time, the department has not made any plans to repair or replace the tower. Further study of the inspection report along with the availability of funding will determine the future of the structure.

Nicolet beach: Work will begin September 22 and continue for the next two to three weeks to address water runoff issues at Nicolet Beach.
