NECEDAH, WI (WTAQ) - The DNR wants to know what people think about moving the location of a future campground at Buckhorn State Park near Necedah in Juneau County.

Officials say the location that’s spelled out in the park’s master plan is no longer conducive to quality camping, because oak wilt is killing trees at that spot.

Instead, the DNR wants to locate the campground closer to the Castle Rock Flowage on the Wisconsin River. It has a healthy mix hardwood trees and evergreen canopy cover.

The new facility would have 60 campsites, showers, and a playground.

The DNR is taking public comments through July 10th on the proposed move.
