Note that there is a vehicle fee to enter the park. A daily pass is $7. When you enter the park for a SummerStage event, let the ranger know, and you will be charged $5. It’s best to buy an annual state park sticker. The cost is $25 per calendar year ($10 for seniors 65 & over). This sticker allows you access to all of the parks in the state. You may buy a park sticker from the ranger, or through the DNR website (see link below).
Tickets may be purchased at our box office (admissions gazebo) or through or online through tickets page on our website. The box office will be open at least one hour prior to the performance. For SummerStage events, go to the schedule page to purchase tickets through the website.
