Wisconsin DNR Now Offering Year-Round Campsite Reservations

Posted on 12-02-2021
Winter Campsites Available At 20+ State Parks & Forests

MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) today announced year-round camping reservations are now available at more than 20 state parks and forests. Temperatures may be dropping, but that doesn’t mean the end of camping for anyone looking for a winter adventure.

With 100% reservable campsites, visitors can plan ahead and have peace of mind before hitting the road knowing that a site is waiting for them. 

Campers will no longer find campsite self-registration envelopes at state properties. Instead, make your reservations using the DNR’s online camping reservation webpage or by calling 1-888-WIPARK.

Reservation service agents can assist by phone or online chat seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 1 through Apr. 30 and 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. May 1 through Oct. 31.

Campers can also reserve a campsite on the same day as arrival by either doing it online before leaving your home or calling from a mobile phone while at the property. Same-day reservations will not be charged the additional $7.95 reservation fee.

Visitors that have their eye on reservable campsites can now use the new Availability Alerts feature on the DNR’s online camping reservation webpage to let them know when a site becomes available.
