The following information applies to Brown County Parks Department activities and facility rentals.
Shelters & Grounds:
A shelter refers to an open-air or enclosed structure reserved through the Department. Grounds refers to a designated area of ground rented for private use.
Rentals:A rental refers to supplies provided by the department for your event or activity. Examples of a rental include: snowshoes, tables, chairs, decorative arch, grills, tents, lighting, etc.
Public Programs:Individuals canceling a reservation where payment has been made will not be refunded, unless the program is canceled by staff due to environmental limitations (weather, wind chill, etc.). In which case a full refund will be applied.
School Programs at Barkhausen:Schools canceling programs (unless due to weather emergencies/school closings) will be charged a $50 cancellation fee per reservation day unless cancellations are made at least two weeks ahead of time, where a full refund will be applied. This will enable us to better accommodate schools on our extensive waiting list.
Camping:Camping locations at Bay Shore Park and the Fairgrounds are handled on a first come first serve basis. Camping reservations are also available on-line for Bay Shore Park. A minimum of a two-night reservation is required with the exception of holiday weekends (Memorial Day, Labor Day weekends and July 4th) where a three-night reservation is required.
