With spring weather just around the corner, Waukesha County Park System campgrounds are ready for visitors to return as the 2019 camping season opens Monday, April 1 and runs through Sunday, November 3.
"Offering high-quality facilities and activities like camping, fishing and hiking is an integral part of the continued success of our park system,” said Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow. “Many campers have been visiting for generations as a cherished tradition.”
The park system offers over 125 campsites at four fee-based park locations:
The fee for a Family Campsite with two camping units is $18 a night. The fee for a Group Campsite with three camping units is $36 a night, with additional camping units for $12 a night. The daily park entrance fee or an annual park sticker is required for all vehicles.
“We are always excited when our campgrounds open,” said Dale Shaver, Parks and Land Use Director. “Our staff look forward to welcoming all of the families that camp with us and explore our woods, trails and beaches.”
Each campground provides toilets, potable water, firewood sales, and nearby beach access. The rustic-style campsites are equipped with a picnic table and a fire ring with grill. There are no hook ups for electricity or water and no dumping stations available.
Campers are encouraged to book sites early through “Online Services” at www.waukeshacountyparks.com. Annual park admission stickers are also available online.
