Potawatomi State Park Trees Cut

Potawatomi State Park is a magical park on the peninsula of Door County Wisconsin.  On Sunday, June 15, 2008, I visited Potawatomi State Park.  To my dismay, a large swath of trees had been cut.  The park staff told me that the trees were cut for a group campground.

This is a real shame.  This special place where the trees were cut was magical and uniquely beautiful.

I suspect that the motivation for this destruction is money, but isn’t it the purpose of our State Park system to preserve these special places for future generations?  The State may need money, and campers pay money while trees do not; but there is plenty of land adjacent to the park that could be purchased for a group campground.

Please help preserve this special place for future generations by contacting the State.  Thank you.
