We donate to the local animal shelter, the Carl W. Nelson Animal Shelter, a  501C3 non-profit organization with a mission to help homeless animals. The CWN Animal Shelter is  located in Mauston, Wisconsin, about 5 miles from   the campground.


As a small business, we believe that it is important to support the community we live in. We take the care of animals very seriously ourselves and that makes supporting this organization easy for us!

How we support the animal shelter -

  1. we collect aluminum cans from our campers, we provide each site with a basket for aluminum cans that we empty. It seems like this is a small thing to do but the cans add up through the summer. We cash in the cans for money and all the money goes to the shelter.

  2. when we have Bingo afternoons, our campers get the 1st Bingo sheet for free and if they want a 2nd Bingo sheet, there is a minimum $1 dollar fee that goes into the animal shelter fund. 

  3. there is a donation jar in the store. 

It all adds up through the summer! We hope if you stay with us, you'll save your cans for the shelter and donate any extra pocket change.


                                      We hope that you'll support your local animal shelter.
