Three counties filed criminal charges this month against Karl Klimes, the man whose behavior prompted the closure of the Boulder Lake Campground in Oconto County. The campground in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest was closed last year, and remains closed indefinitely, with the U.S. Forest Service citing “safety concerns.” And while the Oconto County Sheriff’s Department investigated Klimes for holding target practice on his property adjacent to the campground, no criminal charges were ever filed for those incidents. In January, however, Klimes was committed to a mental health facility for treatment. Although the commitment was for up to six months, Klimes was recently released. On April 6, Langlade County filed three misdemeanor charges, including criminal trespass, for a domestic incident the day before. A $1,000 cash bond was set, including a provision that Klimes remain sober. He posted bond and was released. Two days later Oconto County officers were dispatched to Klimes’ home for a welfare check. Officers say they found him at the end of the driveway. He told officers he had suicidal thoughts because he missed his daughters. He admitted to drinking, which was a violation of his bond, Additionally, Dane County filed charges against Klimes on Tuesday for an incident in November.
