Important news regarding current conditions at Peninsula State Park.

SUBJECT: Storms knock out power, floods some campsites at Peninsula State Park

Popular Sunset bike trail and golf course also closed until further notice

FISH CREEK, Wis. - A series of storms earlier this week in Door County have knocked out power to Peninsula State Park, flooded nearly 40 campsites, and washed out sections of the Sunset bicycle trail within the park. The Peninsula Golf Course, located within the park, is also flooded and the Peninsula Golf Association planned to assess the golf course Friday night to determine whether it could be reopened for the weekend.

State park officials are in the process of contacting campers who had reservations for the flooded campsites and have discontinued taking any additional camping reservations for the weekend and are not accepting any walk-in campers. Without power, there is no running water, shower facilities or flush toilets. Vault toilet facilities remain open within the park.

Sections of the popular Nicolet Beach within the park are also under water, and the heavy rains washed out sections of the sand beach. Other portions of the beach remain open; however the concession stand is without power and remains closed.
Due to the widespread power outages throughout Door County, utility officials were not able to provide an estimate of when power will be restored to the park.

People can check on progress of restoring power and water at the park by searching the Department of Natural Resources website dnr.wi.gov, for keyword "Peninsula" and then clicking on the link on the right for "current conditions."
