DNR wants to move park campground

MADISON, Wis. -

The state Department of Natural Resources wants to relocate a state park campground in west-central Wisconsin.

The master plan for Buckhorn State Park in Juneau County called for a new campground but DNR parks officials say oak wilt is killing trees on the proposed site and the area is no longer conducive to a quality camping experience.

The agency now wants to build the campground closer to the Wisconsin River's Castle Rock Flowage. Parks officials said the new site has a healthy mix of hardwood and evergreen canopy cover. The site would include 60 family campsites, including 20 electrical sites, drinking fountains, a toilet and shower building and playground equipment.

The DNR will take public comments on the relocation through July 10.
