Camping Reservations.  Some spots are now reservable.   All sites are group sites, and are dispersed camping. There is always room for everyone! . Camp where you like except on the south point where posted, Indicate closest camp site # on your registration envelope. 

Groups can make special reservations with 12 or more people with notice by April 1st each year by email. 

Cabin Rental linens, please bring your own sheets, towels or sleeping bags.  This change will keep the club sustainable and allow us not to raise rates for 2023.  Thank you for understanding.  See cabin pages for the number of beds and sizes. 

Clubhouse – please consider having your function here  by renting this awesome space for your gatherings! See pictures on Clubhouse page. Full Kitchen, bar, round and rectangular tables and chairs.

2024 Board meeting will be June 8th in the Clubhouse. Time to be announced. All voting members must have a current membership purchased before May 1 of each year to vote at the Annual Member meeting. 
Your Club! Please see the section below on how you can help the club during your stay.  All members contributions help make the club a great stay for everyone!
Membership $33 by PayPal to or $30 in person at the green pay station at the park.

Electrical spots are $30 per night. Non elect $20 per night. (Even if you camp in a tent in an electrical site the cost is $30 per night. Please leave electric for those who need it. We have fewer electric than tent sites available ~thanks).  Electric cars can be charged onsite for an additional $30.00 per day.  
Wood is  $20 a wheelbarrow each time you get a load from all wood pile locations on site.

We practice the policies the CDC recommends.  The entire campground is considered  “group sites” and anyone can camp anywhere, we encourage you to have a good distance between where you place your sites and to not camp next to the river in case the river rises.  7″ of rain or more north of us in less than 24 hours can make the river go over it’s banks.   ~thank you in advance for keeping others safe.
2200 Brook Trout Released APRIL 2023 into the West Fork of the Kickapoo Watershed. We do this in partnership with LIVING WATERS BIBLE CAMP AND THE WI DEPT OF NATURAL RESOURCES.  See the pics of the day!  Next release will be April 2024. Date to be determined.  Date will be posted under announcements.

Please help the club by:

  1. pick up sticks around the campground and put them in fire pits or tinder holders in various locations.  (helps the mowers immensely)
  2. DON’T get stuck in a sand trap or wet ground, it will cost you $100 or more to get pulled out by a farmer and repair the grounds. (AAA won’t service a vehicle not on a road.)
  3. As an environmental club please recyclables home with you or deliver them 2.6 miles to the recycling center M-F 7:30 am – 3:30 pm.  It is free and likely on your way home. Map Here: Vernon Co. Recycling center (map here) is 2.6 miles from the Campground.
  4. You can also take cans into town and donate them to local causes. There are collection bins for cans by the Mobile Station on Main.
  5. Trash at the Campground is for campers/ cabin members only.  Please respect this as it saves the club precious funds and helps us keep the costs low.   Consider cans vs bottles for camping (YES, good beer is available in cans also!)

Enjoy your time at the Westfork. ~ the Volunteer Board!





Camping is now both reserved and first come first serve.  You can make a reservation here. 

ALL sites are group sites. Please put the closest numbered site on your registration envelope. Membership receipts are the tear off portion of the reservation forms in the GREEN Iron Ranger by the parking lot. 

Dogs are welcome under control.  Dogs are dogs and should be allowed to run. However, if campers are frightened, worried etc. because of a dog,  please ask the owner to put their dog on a leash or to not have the dog around you.  A misbehaving dog is the owners responsibility. Owners, please use leashes when necessary and please be sure to clean up after the dogs.  Dog poo on shoes are no fun for anyone.
