In 2020 we were able to reclaim 18 of the 19 Acres of land for campers and activities. In 2018 we were severely damaged by the breaking of THREE flood structures in the valley. We have .50 miles of Stream and plan to work on the North (upper by the bridge) .4 Miles in the spring of 2021 with the help of Vernon County Land and Water. We also plan to plant more trees and to convert some of the low lying areas we don’t want people to drive through to Flowering Prairie Plants.
Here are some pointers to help everyone as we rebuild.
PLEASE spend 20 mins each visit picking rocks up and putting them in piles between the clubhouse and the river. The sooner we can get the large rocks out the sooner we can reclaim this space to mow and enjoy!
RECYCLABLES MUST GO HOME WITH YOU or to the recycling center 2.6 miles away. Take Y to LF, turn left on LF and follow to the recycling center. Please people, we can not afford to hire someone to remove recyclables.
YES there is firewood, WiFi and Electrical sites.
YES you can camp anywhere it is dry, not just in numbered sites; all sites are group sites.
NO to driving across wet/ low areas, throwing hot dogs & food in the woods (hello… skunks) and leaving your garbage in firepits. (PLEASE people the board members are working hard to get the club grounds in order, we don’t need to spend time picking up garbage on top of digging ditches and moving gravel.)
NO we can not pull you out of low lying areas where you sink into mud or drive into firepits. There will be a $100+ fee and costs to repair the grounds.
YES you can pay at the green pay station at the South end of the Clubhouse.
YES you can pick up flood debris and help pile it for burn piles or use it for firewood.
YES you should put your garbage in the bin and take your recyclables home with you. (We’ve said this twice, did you notice?)
YES you can make donations in the Pay station or Paypal at Westforksportsclub@gmail.com to help us rebuild.
YES you can come and help us out any time. We have a job for you to help with.
NO you should not email us and ask us how the water is. Check the Driftless Angler if you want a fishing report.
IF YOU GET STUCK it will cost approximately $150 to pull you out and you will incur costs to repair the landscaping.
