Camping is a lot of fun. It offers the chance to get outdoors, experience fresh air and play in

open spaces. We are proud of our campground. We have worked hard to make a quality

experience available to our guests.

But we need to inform our guests that there are risks in camping. The experiences and attractions

which make camping enjoyable bring with them an element of hazard. We have always found

the rewards, emotional and recreational, far outweigh the risks. We believe that training, patience

and prudence avoid almost all problems. We do want to be sure all of our guests are aware of

the risks posed by camping-related activities.

Where nature, outdoors and camping activities are involved, it is possible to manage and reduce

the risk of injury. It is not possible to eliminate risk. For that reason, the State of Wisconsin has

adopted laws which limit the liability of businesses like our campground. We are not liable for

injuries and damages which result from the inherent risks of camping. We want to be sure our

customers are aware of those laws. Customers who should not participate in our recreational

activities if they are uncomfortable with the limitations on our liability resulting from the law.

been asked to read the entire Notice by Campground. I have had the chance to ask questions

about the Notice. I have asked the Campground to allow me to participate in camping. This

Notice has informed me that there are risks associated with camping and related recreation. I

have decided that the benefits to me of participating in camping and related recreation outweigh

the risks. I agree that the Campground is immune from liability to the extent provided by

Wisconsin Law.
