MADISON (AP) — Nearly 20 state parks are developing plans to add or upgrade dozens of electric campsites.
Work is expected to begin this spring on as many as 66 new or upgraded electrified camping sites at 11 parks, including Big Foot Beach, Blue Mound, Bong, Buckhorn, Hartman Creek, Interstate, Lake Kegonsa, Kohler-Andrae, Point Beach, Rocky Arbor and Roche-A-Cri.
Another seven parks, High Cliff, Peninsula, Wildcat Mountain, Kettle Moraine North and South, Yellowstone Lake and Devil’s Lake, expect to add up to 338 upgraded or new electrical sites beginning this fall.
The effort is part of a larger $7 million state Department of Natural Resources plan to improve more than 200 publicly owned properties across the state. Plans call improving roads, parking lots and signage.
