    Based on the description it sounds like he was up to no good and if he wasn't.....then no harm done.

    Here is something from the Wisconsin State Legislature.
    Even though it's an open carry state you can't do that in a public park.


    29.089(2)
    (2) Except as provided in sub. (3), no person may have in his or her possession or under his or her control a firearm on land located in state parks or state fish hatcheries unless the firearm is unloaded and enclosed within a carrying case.

    29.089(3)
    (3) A person may hunt deer, elk, wild turkeys, or small game in a state park , or in a portion of a state park , if the department has authorized by rule the hunting of that type of game in the state park , or in the portion of the state park , and, except as provided in s. 29.063 (5), if the person holds the approvals required under this chapter for hunting that type of game.


    These are the reasons I would call the local authorities.


    Thanks
    I think you should try getting better at reading the laws. You left out a very important part of 29.089. So I'll post it with the important part highlighted:

    29.089  Hunting on land in state parks and state fish hatcheries. 29.089(1)(1) Except as provided in sub. (3), no person may hunt or trap on land located in state parks or state fish hatcheries.
    29.089(2) (2) Except as provided in sub. (3), no person may have in his or her possession or under his or her control a firearm on land located in state parks or state fish hatcheries unless the firearm is unloaded and enclosed within a carrying case. This subsection does not apply to any of the following:
    29.089(2)(a) (a) A person who is employed in this state by a public agency as a law enforcement officer and to whom s. 941.23 (1) (g) 2. to 5. and (2) (b) 1. to 3. applies.
    29.089(2)(b) (b) A qualified out-of-state law enforcement officer, as defined in s. 941.23 (1) (g), to whom s. 941.23 (2) (b) 1. to 3. applies.
    29.089(2)(c) (c) A former officer, as defined in s. 941.23 (1) (c), to whom s. 941.23 (2) (c) 1. to 7. applies.
    29.089(2)(d) (d) A licensee, as defined in s. 175.60 (1) (d), or an out-of-state licensee, as defined in s. 175.60 (1) (g), if the firearm is a handgun, as defined in s. 175.60 (1) (bm).

    If you are going to OC, you really should avoid acting in a manner that would make people view you negatively. I know with some the very act of OCing is not tolerable, and there isn't much you can do about that, but you should at least not snub people who say hi.

    (I'm assuming that the OP doesn't look like a sketchy mo-fo.)

    To everyone here who have made the decision to open carry and may have felt as though I expressed a negative opinion regarding open carry, I feel I must apologize, for that was not my intent. I am certainly not qualified to say which is better or not tactically. Carrying at all is fairly new here in Wisconsin and to me as well. I must admit until it was allowed, I never carried. I am a rookie at best at all this, and it’s very informative as to the varied opinions on the forum. As far as I am concerned regarding the other guy at the park, he was someone who just didn’t wish to engage in conversation for what ever were his reasons. Admittedly I was a bit miffed by being snubbed. But I was there to enjoy the park with my son, and that’s what I did. Best regards to all.

I thought now here is a guy who was having a bad day, or thought he was a bad ass because he had a gun on his belt. I brushed my hand to my side and felt some what reassured that my concealed carry was discreetly hidden at my side. I led my son to another part of the play ground and kept an eye on this person as he wondered through the park/ beach area. I couldn’t help but wonder if he had a permit, seeing that a permit is required to carry in the state park system; and if he did have a conceal carry permit, why wouldn’t you conceal it? It just seams that to open carry gives away a tactical advantage. Let a lone to display an attitude that would only seem to feed the anti-gun people more fuel regarding the so call "gun toting types".
    Some people just do not know or might have ever used 'good manners'.

    You, Sir, should continue to use your good manners and just expect that others are less than you.

    This may have been his defensive measure or this could have been his first OC outting and he may have out-of-the gate jitters.
