The two campgrounds managed by the Winnebago County Conservation Board will be closed for the season beginning Oct. 19. Those two campgrounds are located at Thorpe Park, 5 miles west of Forest City, and Dahle Park, 4 miles northwest of Lake Mills. Until snow forces their closure, roads to the campgrounds will remain open. But on the 19th, the water will be shut off, the picnic tables will be moved for the winter, and the fire rings will be removed.
Although the campgrounds will be closed, the Lake Catherine Cabin at Thorpe Park remains open all year. The cabin rents for $61/night during the week and $77/night on Friday and Saturday nights. For more information about the cabin, including available dates, people can visit the WCCB website at www.winnebagoccb.com. Cabin reservations can be made online or by calling the WCCB at 641-565-3390.
