With the busy season of camping in Door County coming to a close, area state parks are making the change for the anticipated arrival of winter activities. Michelle Hefty, park manager for Newport and Rock Island State Parks, says after a recent cleanup weekend of brush removal the parks are getting ready for the next wave of outdoor enthusiasts.
Door County has five state parks throughout the peninsula. Newport State Park was also designated as one of 18 Dark Sky Parks in the United States last year. You can find information on trails and activities offered at Newport State Park with the link below.
