Get Your Perfect Selfie in Wisconsin State Parks
Posted on: 9/25/2017
Madison, Wis. – Looking for a beautiful backdrop to capture that special memory of you and your group of friends and family? Getting the best shot at Wisconsin’s most scenic locations just got easier. In time for the fall color season, Travel Wisconsin and Wisconsin State Parks teamed up to install selfie stands in 10 state parks.
"We are thrilled to partner with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to create an experience that gives people an easy way to capture a lifetime of memories and the beauty of our state parks," Tourism Secretary Stephanie Klett.
The stands are designed with smartphones in mind with platforms ready to hold any size or style of mobile device, allowing visitors to safely snap that coveted group photo in front of one of the park’s most popular views. The custom built signs instruct users how to set their smartphones on a shelf, which swivels from left to right 180 degrees and tilts upward 90 degrees, allowing users to create customizable angles to capture the best image.
"These selfie stands are a great addition to some of Wisconsin's most scenic state parks and we are very grateful to the Department of Tourism for providing another amenity for our park visitors," said Wisconsin State Park System Director Ben Bergey. "Fall is one of the best times of year to visit state parks and we encourage our visitors to take advantage of these stands and share their experiences enjoying Wisconsin's autumn scenery with friends, family and other fans of the Wisconsin State Park System."
Selfie stands can be found in the following list, which includes the location and a brief description of the view that will be sure to earn lots of likes. Stands in Wyalusing and Pattison State Parks are wheelchair accessible. Visitors are encouraged to share their photo using #ScenicWisconsin or upload on TravelWisconsin.com.
