Wisconsin Law - Smoking Ban


After years of talking about this law, the Wisconsin legislature passed a smoking ban that includes hotels, motels, cabins, bars, and restaurants. Because of this law, all of Castle Rock Hideaway"s cabins are now nonsmoking. Smoking is still allowed outside of the cabins.

This new law includes many public facilities that have already invoked smoking bans, such as retail stores, malls, and many restaurants.

The Legislative memo about this new law can be downloaded here (pdf). Fishing resorts are licensed as hotel/motel, and so fall under the "lodging" category of the State law.

The law officially goes into effect July 5, 2010, so you may still be able to smoke in many taverns and restaurants in Wisconsin before that date. Castle Rock Hideaway, after consulting with cleaning staff and considering the overall affects on guests, has chosen to make all our units non-smoking for the entire 2010 season. Many of our guests who smoke already only smoke outside. Smoking will no longer be allowed in the cabins.

We appreciate your cooperation with our no smoking policy.
