WAW is situated on 255 acres of diverse West Central Wisconsin woodlands and fields. Hardwoods cover about 120 acres while spruce plantations cover approximately 20 acres, both providing food and shelter for wildlife. The remaining 100 acres of forested area consist of fruit trees, other softwoods, and creek bottom. Small fields and food plots of clover, alfalfa, and oak regrowth areas (tree tubes) cover 15 acres and provide food for deer and our feathered friends. A fishing pond with a wheelchair dock and stocked with bluegill is also readily accessible to mobility challenged sportsmen. Winding throughout the property are 3 1/2 miles of wheel-chair accessible gravel roads allowing access to all the outdoor features mentioned above. We recently added six electrically serviced campsites near our south gate and shelter area. Campfire sites also were added. A second well and improved sanitary facilities are planned.
In 2002 the lodge was constructed to provide a daily meeting place, handicap restrooms, warmth, and care of harvested game. True half-log, hand peeled, red pine was used a siding to create a more natural theme for the camp.
Accessible hunting platforms, with blinds, have been installed for the comfort of the hunters as well as provide camouflage. All seasonal blinds are Doghouse-Total Scent Control, however, five new permanent stick-built blinds are now in place. A stocked fish pond is also on site.
Our South entrance off Rock Creek Road will accommodate vans or small buses. The picnic shelter, restroom area, and wildflower fields border the parking areas and connect to the main lodge area (which has a separate entrance) by multiple narrow roads and trails. The south entrance has been added primarily to accommodate larger groups and organized field trips for club s, schools, or youth groups. Campsite additions are described in the “Our Grounds” section above.
