BLACK RIVER FALLS (Press Release) – A proposed change to the master plan for the Black River

nine-day gun deer season.

state Department of Natural Resources statewide and they are heavily used.
Use of the horse camp has declined 80 percent during the

weekend at the traditional East Fork Campground, located nearby.
The Black River State Forest currently has one group camp
site with a cabin that is rented every weekend of the year and every day of the
week in the summer.
The new group camp would offer 6 to 8 gravel spurs where
visitors could park camping units, a common area where additional tents could
be pitched, a large communal fire ring, a well and a vault toilet building
constructed in 2009. In the future a volleyball court and horseshoes could
