Sheriff’s officials say a problem that led them to close a popular campground in a northern Wisconsin forest has been resolved.

WLUK-TV reports that officials decided to close the Boulder Lake Campground in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest because a nearby property owner was holding target practice on his land.

Oconto County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Ed Janke says the matter has been resolved in court. No other details were provided.

Sheriff’s officials say they will meet with National Forest Service representatives to talk about reopening the campground.
