The Friends of the Bark Point Boat ramp are looking for donations to make needed improvements. One such improvement is the construction of a new safer walkway. Plus, we are looking to improve the boat ramp, to keep sand from filling it in every year. Any monies donated will go into a fund for the Bark Point Boat Landing, for present and future projects.

If you would like to contribute, we invite you to join us as a team in supporting the continued use of the Bark Point Landing. Please make your check payable to the Town of Clover, in the memo area please note (Bark Point Boat Landing). Mail your contribution to the Town of Clover, P.O. Box 94, Herbster, WI 54844.

You can look on the Town of Clover website for one of the improvement projects taking place.

Your contribution is tax deductible. If you have any questions, you can contact us at (715) 774-3780, or one of the Boat Landing Committee members: Mark Pope, Dale Paulson, Jim Reha and Stan Samuels.

Thank you for your consideration with this fundraising effort.


Sincerely,  The Friends of the Bark Point Boat Landing
