New membership FUNDRAISING CHALLENGE of $500 for April 2018. Please consider donating to match this so every dollar turns into $2.00. It will be used to restore the club driveways.
Due to the recent weather the power outages in the area and their impending repairs, and the road ban the club will not be open April 15th, we are shooting for April 24th.
We will keep you updated here. Please do not email to ask if the club is open it just takes time away from the other things we are working on to get the club open. If you can lend a hand the more hands the faster the club can be up and running.
Next Annual Members Meeting is Saturday, June 1st; 7 PM at the Clubhouse. We will have a work day scheduled during that day beginning at 2:00 pm. Please mark your calendars and come help us make improvements at the club. Thanks.
PLEASE take your recycling to the recycling center off of Y on LF. It is free, open 7:30 am to 3:30 pm. Vernon Co. Recycling center (map here) is 2.6 miles from the Campground.
TRASH at the campground is for campers/ cabin members only. ONLY campers should be depositing trash at the campground (no matter what you have been told in the past.)
Consider Cans vs bottles for camping. (YES, good beer is available in cans also!)

2018 Membership meeting highlights:
-Vernon County zoning has inspected the club and green-lighted some structural improvement work.
-There is a new online cabin reservation system.
-We have adopted a stream restoration plan and dedicated $5000 to it for each of the next 3 years. We will be seeking the remaining funding of $12,500 from members, Trout Unlimited partners, and other Environmental Partnerships. UPDATE: the plan needs to be adapted because of the flooding and upstream actions but is still in the works and the club intends to keep its commitment to placing $5000 in the stream restoration fund for 3 years.
First Come First Serve for ALL camping sites. All reservations scheduled before April 1 will be honored. After April 1 we will not be taking reservations for specific spots. EACH spot numbered is a GROUP camping space so you can pitch your tent anywhere and it will be fine.
Large groups (15 or more) should schedule before April 1 of each year and identify the section of the campground for their camping needs. Use the online contact below to make requests. Requests do not mean reservations are complete. A confirmation email will be sent confirming availability. The WFSC reserves the right to cancel ANY reservation when weather events prevent use of parts or all of the campground. For group reservations each April a sign will be posted at the South and Portage Shelters indicating the reserved dates for large groups. If a member camps there when a large group is coming in they will be asked to move. You must be a member to camp at the Club. Other than these reserved dates all members are welcome to camp in these areas. See Camping and Membership pages for more info.
