MADISON - Visitors to Wisconsin state park system properties can jump into the start of summer this June by camping, getting fit, taking a day trip or exploring paddle watersports and then sharing their experience with others through social media.
Throughout June the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will feature activities and events visitors can participate in at a state park property on its Facebook page and Twitter account. Park visitors are encouraged to share their own experiences using the hashtag #WIstateparks.
Each week will have a different focus, beginning with the wide variety of camping opportunities in the state park system, from modern campgrounds to primitive backpacking campsites, and bicycle and water access campsites. There will also be camp cooking suggestions.
Other weeks will focus on tips to "get moving at parks" with activities for health and fitness at park properties, day-tripping suggestions for different parks around the state, and the wide variety of paddle sport water activities available at park properties.
To participate, follow the suggestions on the DNR Facebook Page www.facebook.com/WIDNR and Twitter account twitter.com/WDNR. Links for both can be easily found in the footer of the DNR website, dnr.wi.gov.
