Initial Permit Pulled For Park Project In Wisconsin (2/8/2019)
Story by Woodall's Campground Management
Model cabins proposed for Wood River RV Park.
There was a proposal to turn the former Wood Lake Bible Camp site in Burnette County, Wisc., into an RV park with up to 90 sites, but that permit was pulled late in January, according to the Burnette County Sentinel.
The owner, Patrick Kinsella, and his wife, Judi, are now in the process of coming up with a new plan.
There was an online petition started to “preserve the history and community of Big Wood Lake,” which received over 800 signatures. The proposal was set to have a public hearing March 5 with the Land Use and Information Committee at the Government Center.
“We have pulled the conditional use permit to turn the camp into an RV park,” Jeff Sventek said. “This decision has nothing to do with the petition going around. The decision to pull the permit was based on wanting to take another approach to the site.”
Then on Jan. 31 Sventek submitted a new proposal that would “preserve the character and history of the Wood Lake Bible Camp.”
Sventek said the Kinsellas plan on turning the site into a camp that will benefit underprivileged kids in the community and want the camp to be somewhere for families to have fun and enjoy themselves.
The new proposal states 20-27 park model cabins will be placed throughout the property. These cabins are approximately 35 feet by 12 feet. They have a living space of about 360 square feet with a total of 9,720 square feet total for 27 units.
