4/21/2015 - Northwoods Attraction Still A Huge Success After Implementing Fee - Click here to print this information

People needed to pay to see a natural wonder in Wisconsin this winter.

A $5 fee was put in place for those who wanted to hike out to the ice caves at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.

The park collected $140,000 from the fees and shared a small portion of the proceeds with the National Parks Service, leaving the Apostle Islands with $135,000.

The park will use that money to hire temporary employees and improve other visitor services in preparation for next season.

The caves attracted nearly 38,000 visitors this year, even though they were only accessible for nine days.
