05/08/2020- They’re one of the few attractions still open in Marinette County and as the weather warms up plenty of people are taking advantage of the chance to get out of the house and visit one of more than a dozen County parks and waterfalls. While some state parks and those in some other counties have been closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, Marinette County Facilities Director Martin Keyport says they’ve had few issues with guests not abiding by social distancing guidelines and he’s happy to keep the local parks open as long as that continues.
At this point, however, the County’s campgrounds remain closed and County officials have yet to pinpoint an exact date that they anticipate their reopening. Keyport says that’s a daily discussion, and the number one priority remains preserving the health and safety of County staff and the general public.
The typical $5 day-use fee at Marinette County parks went into effect May 1st. Visitors also have the option to purchase an annual park pass for $20 which can be done online through the County’s parks website. here.
