MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Hikers and climbers say graffiti appears to be increasing on the rocks at Devil’s Lake State Park.

Doug Hemken, a rock climber and board member of the Friends of Devil’s Lake, tells the Wisconsin State Journal (https://bit.ly/29qoP62 ) that he believes graffiti has been showing up more often in recent years. Some has been spray-painted. Some has been done with a Sharpie pen. He says his group has been cleaning it up once or twice a year.

The park’s superintendent, James Carter, says park officials get three or four reports a year of people trying to tag different rock features. He says different volunteer crews come in and clean it up. Cleaning requires a solvent or paint-remover and wire brushes, gloves and physical strength.
