how has the law been worded?

I was in almost Wisconsin this weekend. spitting distance from the border.

and If I had the time I was thinking about going for a nice walk in a nature preserve or state park or something similar.

turned out I didn't have the time and I am still not sure if that is legal, because I remember previously a firearm had to be in a case and visible, such as a see through case to have it legal in a state park.

SUMMARY: is it legal to CCW in a wisconsin state park and if so what are the general guidelines?

Yes you can conceal carry in Wisconsin state parks.

I'm posting this in Sep. 2014, and in 2011 our laws about carry changed considerably, and not just getting concealed carry.

CCW is still a crime. It's a misdemeanor with a risk of up to $10,000 fine and up to 9 months in jail. Don't do it.
Open carry is legal. Always was. Now we have legal protection against being charged for DC.
Concealed carry is legal with a ccl (concealed carry license). See www.handgunlaw.us to learn if your ccl/ccp is valid in WI.

As for parks specifically...
WI statute 29.089(2) originally prohibited useful firearms in state parks, other than hunting, etc., which the DNR people already told you about.

2011 Act 35 changed that so anyone with a ccl can carry openly or concealed in a state park or fish hatchery. Also, if you have a ccl you can carry in a taxpayer-owned building which does not have a "keep out, evil gun owner" sign on the door, and the state decided not to post its buildings. (Courts and police stations are prohibited by law, but are also usually posted.)

2011 Act 168 changed that so anyone who's legal to possess a firearm or ammunition is legal to carry in a state park, but a ccl is still needed for a fish hatchery (dunno why) or taxpayer-owned building. This went into effect 01JAN13.

So now 29.089 only talks about hunting, fishing, & trapping in state parks & fish hatcheries, and possessing a firearm at a fish hatchery. Nothing about possessing a firearm in a state park.

http://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/statutes/statutes/29/II/089

Thanks to preemption (66.0409) this change in state law means that no locally-owned park can prohibit anyone who's lawfully armed.
http://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/statutes/statutes/66/IV/0409

And both 66.0409(6) and 947.01(2) clearly & explicitly say that simply being armed is not disorderly conduct.
