"Wisconsin campgrounds are considered essential housing and are allowed open."

But enforcing distancing, masks ect. will be a challenge.

The majority of RV’ers will follow the rules. I’m sure there will be plenty of golf carts driving around making sure the small percentage of people not following the rules aren’t congregating.

People need to get out for their own health as well as mental health!

A while back our governor dropped all entry fees to WI State Parks/Forests. Attendance sky rocketed at most SP's. Even though the campground was closed an estimated 16,457 'day visitors' were at High Cliff SP over the weekend of April 4-5 leaving vandalism and alot of garbage in their wake. By the pic on the DNR website there was little if any social distancing taking place. Another example of a few have to ruin it for the many.

The problem is, with so many places closed, any place that wanted to sensibly remain open, will be inundated by people traveling to that place to camp. I for one am chomping at the bit. I had a 6-week trip to Florida cancelled, and I'm literally looking for anyplace to go. I'm sure I'm not the only one. So what happens when we all find that ONE place that is still open?

And then there's the issue of the more remote, less-populated areas being unable to handle a large number of imported ill people.

I'm afraid the prospects of going camping soon are pretty bleak.

Grrr.

Same here in Arizona, although they limit the number of campsites that are available. I'm guessing they only allow every other campsite to be occupied from what I read in the newspaper.

I was just in Baraboo to get our weekly groceries. There were 3 trucks w/boats parked at the store with Illinois plates. Why can't these people stay at home. Don't bring more CV to us. We are dealing with our own. That is one reason the governor closed all of the parks. In the news video of the crowded parks, 4 of the 7 cars that you could see the license plates were from Illinois. I guess that makes sense, they think that Wisconsin is their largest state park.

One of my big concerns is, when we do start to see travel restrictions lifted, I will be traveling with NY plates on my vehicle. Will people assume I'm from NYCity and persecute me? In the county I live in, which is 350 miles from NYCity, we currently have 4 cases of COVID19 per 10,000 population. In NYCity it's over 95 per 10,000 population. It's bad enough that I have to put up with the same restrictions as NYCitiers, but will my fellow Americans hate me when I come to their state?
