Sauk County to Reopen White Mound County Campground

The Sauk County Board (Wisconsin) has taken its first step in reopening a county park on Tuesday.

As per a report,  members unanimously approved a resolution to provide funds for the reconstruction of White Mound County Park, a designated horse campground, until 2021, after an inspection discovered it didn’t meet campground code requirements. County Land Resources and Environment Department shut it down until the property complied.

Since public opinion during the development of the park master plan found support for improving and reopening the campground in rural Hill Point, $125,000 of American Rescue Plan Act funding was allocated for enhancements.

In April, county officials asked for bids on engineering and design services and received two bids that met the criteria.

Supervisors approved a contract to Parkitecture + Planning LLC, of Madison, for $16,610 to design the improved campground.

Part of their work includes demolition and erosion control plans, the site layout, grading, electrical and stormwater management. Documents will also focus on landscape and restoration, typical construction details, and plans for vault toilets.

Planners said the county could solicit bids in the fall of 2023 and construction to begin either in late 2023 or early 2024.

According to the Sauk County website, at approximately 1,100 acres, White Mound County Park offers a campground with 46 campsites, 37 of which include electrical hookups.

The park also surrounds the 104-acre White Mound Lake perfect for paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, fishing, and boating at a slow-no-wake speed.
