FAQ’s

The Westfork Sports Club is run by volunteers who try to keep the campground functioning and in order.  We are not available to answer questions that members can find on their own. We hope you understand and as a member that you will help us by not driving in low, wet areas of the grass, picking up your trash and depositing it in the dumpster, turning off lights when not needed in the bathrooms, paying your fees and helping out when you see things needing to be tended to.  Occasionally we have work days where we hope members will come and help us with large projects.  These will be posted on the web page.
We hope you have a great stay at the Westfork Sports Club.   ~ WFSC Board Members
