Wisconsin Campground Seeing More Visitors

Wisconsin’s Brown County Parks Director Matt Kriese said occupancy rates at Bay Shore Campground went from 32% in 2015 to about 57% last year.

“Prior to Memorial weekend, we were full Wednesday morning already. That’s unprecedented. Typically Thursday, maybe Friday morning, we’re full. To be full three days in advance of the holiday weekend, that’s awesome,” Kriese told a local report.

“That means people are understanding they need to plan in advance and reserve or get their site early on if they want to camp.”

A new 51-site campground at the Reforestation Camp in Suamico opened on June 3.

Brown County expects the campground–a $1.2 million investment, to draw more than 20,000 visitors a year and generate $125,000 in annual revenue. 

This only shows that interest in camping isn’t waning, Kriese noted.

“Sales of RVs are up 10 to 15 percent from this same time last year,” he said. “That shows our trends are only going to increase for some time yet.”

Marian and Craig Hancock, were among campers at Bay Shore Campground during the Memorial Day weekend.

They told the local report that they have no plans to stop camping any time soon.

“We’ll camp until we can’t go anymore,” she said.
