Guests who stay on the east side of Fort McCoy’s Pine View Campground will eventually have a new comfort station available for their use, said Recreational Specialist Alex Karis with Outdoor Recreation for the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (DFMWR).

Karis said the new station adds to many new campground additions that are on the campground’s east side along Suukjak Sep Lake. In recent years, additional cabins have been put in place and other camping sites have seen improvement.

“The new stations takes the place of site 125,” Karis said.

Work on the project started in early spring and continues at a steady pace, said Directorate of Public Works Construction Inspection Branch Chief Dan Hanson.

“The project consists of constructing a new 1,500-square-foot comfort station similar to the other recently completed facility at Pine View Campground, and it includes men’s and women’s restrooms and showers areas as well as a fish cleaning station.”

The contractor for the project is MDM Construction, which is headquartered in Rockford, Ill. The contract amount to build the station is $475,736.

“The project is currently at more than 50 percent complete, and it’s expected completion date is in the fall,” Hanson said.

Pine View Campground fully reopened for the season on May 2. Most of the camping sites nearby to the construction area will remain open, Karis said.

“The new station will make that side of the lake more attractive to guests and more efficient for everyone,” Karis said.
