Peninsula State Park may not have the new Eagle Tower open this summer, but it will have a new park superintendent greeting visitors. Brian Markowski started last month as the new Peninsula Park superintendent replacing Kelly Bruns who left the position to take a job in the Twin Cities last year. Markowski has 19 years with the Department of Natural Resources starting in forestry management and then wildlife management. Most recently, Markowski says he worked at Willow River State Park in Hudson, Wisconsin.
Markowski says the camping sites in Peninsula State Park are filled for the busy Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial start of summer begins for campers and the park.
