serving those who served


Lakewood WWV Camp, Inc.,  is  a 501 (c) (3) public charity.

This lush property sits on 336 acres surrounded by 1,000 acres of Wisconsin nature preserve of the most picturesque land Wisconsin has to offer. Beautiful green fairways and luscious leafy trees line the magnificent 71.1 USGA ranked 18-hole golf course. The private members-only 120-acre course includes 42 bunkers and several water hazards with three sets of tees for different skill levels. Aim for a par 71 as you enjoy leisurely play along the perfectly manicured and immaculately maintained land.

Cabins and grounds will serve as a retreat facility for veterans and Gold Star families, offering a space to reconnect and work on regaining a normal after-service life.
