Camping Amid the WI Flooding

Camping is one of the best ways to get out in nature and enjoy a side of Wisconsin you may not see every day! Wisconsin has numerous State Parks and National Forests scattered within its borders. As summer begins to wind down, it is the perfect time to visit one of them!

However, before mapping out a hike or jumping in the car and road tripping to your favorite campground, make sure you have the necessities. Flashlights (lamps, headlamps, lanterns, etc.), radios, walkie-talkies, portable mattress pumps, among other gear that can all require alkaline batteries. We recommend that you check to see that the batteries in the products are working and that you pack away a couple spares for the trip.

However, with all of the rain we’ve gotten recently we suggest checking the DNR website for park closures.  You never know when dangerous weather can strike, in case it does, here are a few things to have in your car for emergency situations. Similar to camping, having battery operated products such as a flashlight, flares (battery operated/traditional), and emergency radio stored in your motor vehicle can keep you out of harm. Alkaline batteries also play a major role for emergency responders. Their gear can include, but is not limited to flashlights, location beacons, pumps, goggles/glasses, flares, radios and walkie-talkies.
