Front Gate: The Willow River Rod and Gun Club is a private club. Our goal is to maintain our private status and to do so we ask that members in good standing keep the gate combination confidential. We also ask that members needing to handle the gate lock, roll the numbers after they are finished so the gate combination is not displayed to anyone else. It is optional to shut the gate when you enter the club. We do ask if you are the last one to leave or may be the last one to leave that you shut and lock the gate. Individuals who have purposely damaged the gate or the lock will be liable for damages. If you find the gate broken or the lock broken or missing, please call the club number at (715) 246-4884. The voice mail will direct you to the Membership Director who will correct the problem.
