St. Croix County parks fee set to increase

The St. Croix County Community Development Committee approved a fee increase effective Jan. 1, 2012 for the St. Croix County Parks system.

This fee increase will affect visitors to Glen Hills Park, Troy Beach and Homestead Parklands on Perch Lake.

In 2012 the price of a daily admission sticker will increase from $5 to $7. Also, the campsite reservation fee will increase from $5 to $10. All other fees will remain unchanged.

In 2012 campers will notice a change in the method for camper registrations. First, the camper will be required to purchase a daily or an annual admission sticker for each motor vehicle. Second, the camping fee will be charged in addition to the vehicle admission sticker. In past years campers were not required to purchase the admission sticker prior to paying the camping fee.

Park staff will take reservations beginning Jan. 3 for the 2012 camping season. Call 715-265-4613 if you wish to make a campsite reservation.
