    Kay – Could you check on the campground story? Your article states the rule change would allow more than one tent, but the DNR web site seems to state families can not have more than one tent, it simply allows more than six people to occupy the tent.

    I ask because is now describing it as an attempt to segregate gay people and I did not interpret that from your story at all. I don’t think there are separate facilities for families and non families. Thanks.

    “Campsite Capacities
    The equipment capacity of any given site will be one basic camping unit, and one non-sleeping transportation vehicle. A small tent no bigger than 8’x10’ shall also be allowed on a campsite for dependent children who are under the age of 18 and immediate family members of the registered camper. Unless otherwise posted, all other vehicles must be parked in the designated parking areas.

    The maximum number of people using a designated site is 6. When a number of persons wishing to occupy a single campsite exceeds 6, the groups shall split and occupy more than one site.

    Exceptions will be made for a family (parents, children, grandparents) whose size exceeds 6. The equipment capacity still applies.”
