Check Out Wisconsin State Parks At Your Library

Check Out Wisconsin State Parks At Your Library is a collaborative effort between the DNR, the Wisconsin Association of Public Libraries and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. This program allows library cardholders to check out a state park and daily forest vehicle admission pass from participating libraries. Along with the day pass, the cardholder will receive an informational kit of state park system materials and maps, stickers, accessibility information and more. The program aims to expand new visitors’ access to the Wisconsin State Park System. Visit the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for more information.
