Whitewater State Park Planning

The DNR is proposing to develop a new campground, convert the existing Gooseberry Glen campground to day use, and redevelop the former park manager's residence into lodging for park visitors. The plan amendment also describes a route for the Whitewater Loop State Trail through a portion of Whitewater State Park.

The management plan amendment describes the impacts of these changes on resource management, interpretive services, and recreational use and visitor services at the state park.
