The 19 acre park and campground along the banks of the West Fork of the Kickapoo River, a prime trout fishing destination, is truly in the Heart of the Driftless. Founded by the Widner Family, the club continues to be a valuable resource for the local community and visitors to the West Fork valley.  Come stay with us and see why people have been coming back for decades!

About the Club


The XXXX square foot clubhouse can be rented for your group activity. It has restrooms, a full kitchen, and enough tables and chairs to fit at least 75 people.


The “Day Shelter” can be rented separately or it is comes with renting the clubhouse. The shelter is ideal for outdoor cook outs and smaller gatherings.


By law, our inexpensive annual membership is required to camp at the WFSC campground. Membership is $30 for the year, renewable after the 1st of each year.

What We Offer

Our top priorities are to be a voice for conservation and community in the West Fork watershed. The WFSC has long been “Trout Central” but we are more than just that!


Avalanche is the ideal base camp for your Driftless Area fishing trip. The tiny town of Avalanche has long been “trout central” for Midwest trout anglers.

Stream Restoration Fund

A leader in stream habitat restoration, the West Fork of the Kickapoo needs some love and attention after the 2018 floods drastically changed the river. Plans for a more flood resilient stream design are ready to be implemented. Help us make those plans a reality.
