MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Department of Natural Resources wants comments on a proposal to raise some camping fees.

The DNR wants to increase nightly camping fees in six northern state forests from $10 to $12 per camp site for rustic campgrounds. The agency says those prices would be in line with fees for similar camping experiences elsewhere.

Nightly fees in four Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest campgrounds and one Black River State Forest campground would increase from $12 to $15 per night. The DNR says those campgrounds offer advanced amenities.

The DNR also wants to raise camping fees at Rock Island State Park from $12 to $15 per night, saying it's the most expensive state park to run.

Public hearings on the proposals are set for May 17 in Madison and May 18 in Woodruff.
