My wife Suman and I are taking over a Campground in Chippewa Falls, WI after the previous owners decided to sell and retire.



We have had a very busy year - getting married in August, planning the move this spring and expecting our first child in May!


We met in Colorado working at a ski resort. I worked in event operations and she in event sales.

When we decided to get married, we wanted to raise our kids closer to family - hers in Superior, WI and mine in Batavia, IL.

I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit and Suman shared my dream of starting an event venue.

After searching for a suitable parcel of land, we found Pine Harbor for sale and agreed this might be the first step towards our dream.


The campground has 45 sites on 10 acres. Currently, 15 of those sites are occupied by seasonal campers.

We are open from May-mid October.

We have flush toilets, free showers and coin operated laundry. 

We are known for a family friendly, clean atmosphere and I intend to keep that reputation.

I have spent the past summer learning from the former owner/camp host so as to continue the success the campground has had for so many years.

Admittedly, I have never run a campground myself, but the seasonal campers have been very helpful.

However, I would feel much more comfortable with a little more help.


I do not have any employees and am not setup to pay wages for work.

Therefore, trading a campsite for chores is my best option.

One of the seasonal couples camp for free in exchange for helping out a bit.

The wife primarily cleans the bathroom and the husband helped mow the lawn, bundle wood and collect garbage and recycling.

By the end of the season, though, the husband started to get back trouble from bundling and the hours were adding up to unreasonable amounts.

I agreed to take on 100% of the wood responsibilities, but I am still concerned about overworking them.


I am looking for extra help to decrease the burden of work.

Responsibilities include:

Mowing the lawn

Cleaning bathrooms/showers

Raking pine needles and leaves

Collecting garbage and recycling

Checking in campers


We currently have 4 seasonal sites open and you would have first pick.

The sites are very spacious, include water, electric and sewer.

There is a link to our website below. Please take a look and let me know what you think!


Please feel free to contact me with any questions.


Hope to hear from you soon,


Brett Bullock
