SHERWOOD - A nice little campfire actually felt pretty good for campers this holiday weekend at High Cliff State Park.
Last year? Campers say that wasn't an option.
The Larsen family from Racine had to cut last year's holiday camping trip short because of the heat. So, needless to say, they're much more comfortable this time around.
Last Fourth of July holiday weekend, temperatures ranged from the mid-90s to almost 100 in some areas of the state.
And with the heat came dry conditions. Several counties were under high fire danger, some even implemented burning restrictions.
But his year, fire danger is low for most of the state.
"Obviously it makes our job a little bit easier not having to worry about wildfires or something going wrong, but it's been a good year so far," High Cliff State Park manager Linda Guelig said.
Even though there may be low fire danger, DNR officials say that doesn't mean there's no fire danger. Officials are asking campers and those outside to take caution.
"We want to make sure we put our fires out, keep them attended. It is a good time to be cautious and safe," Guelig said.
And just a reminder, fireworks are illegal in state parks. The Wisconsin DNR says park rangers will be enforcing the ban.
