State park employees have two of Wisconsin’s busiest state parks, the Kettle Moraine State Forest Northern Unit and Southern Unit, geared up for another busy summer.
Joe Giesfeldt, superintendent of the northern unit, said visitation has not slowed down.
“Based on the traffic counters just at the main recreation areas, we are looking at about 650,000 visitors a year,” Giesfeldt said. “That’s not even close to what actually we see. We don’t track every parking lot. We just track our main ones.”
