Can I go Hiking again in Wisconsin in May 2020?

Yes! It’s been a rather long time, but the state parks in Wisconsin are finally opening back up, starting May 1st 2020. However, there will be a few things you’ll still want to look out for.

Do I still have to social distance when at the state park?

You’ll still need to practice social distancing when you’re at the state parks this May. This means you’ll want to stay at least 6 feet away from everyone at all times.  Here are a few things you may want to consider:

  • Keep wearing your mask
  • Try not to touch anything
  • The lookouts and towers will still be CLOSED
  • If you are sick, STAY HOME
  • Clean up after your pet
  • Remember your park pass, otherwise you won’t be able to get in
    • Passes aren’t available onsite, so you’ll need to order them online
  • Most park hours are different (closing at 7 instead of 11, there are some exceptions in north WI)
  • Restrooms will be CLOSED
  • There are NO garbage/recycling bins, so be prepared to take your garbage back with you
  • There’s a limit on how many people can enter the park at a time
  • Some state parks may remain closed, so double-check before travelling
