Milwaukee County Parks Adds Camp Out Opportunities This Summer

Greendale – A new Milwaukee County Parks event this month will give families the chance to spend a night camping in a park.

Family Camp Out nights, next to Whitnall Beer Garden, will be held on July 26, July 27, August 9, or August 10, and up to 75 camping spaces are available each night.

The manager of Whitnall Beer Garden, said “camping is not usually permitted in any Milwaukee County Park, so this is a rare opportunity for families to enjoy a night under the stars in Whitnall Park and it creates a new way to enjoy an evening at the beer garden.”

The Camp Out costs $25 for adults per night and $15 for children per night. Up to 6 people can share one site and each group will get a 20 x 30 space, souvenir pint glasses, and beverage tickets for the beer garden (includes soft drinks). Two ADA accessible camp sites will also be available.

Campers can bring a gas or charcoal grill and will have access to a community campfire for making s’mores or campfire stories. Camping will happen rain or shine and Milwaukee County Parks rangers will be on-site the entire night.
