About Wilderness Campground Picture #2

Your hosts Bob and Melanie and the Weiss family have years of experience helping families to create memories at Wilderness Campground. Bob’s parents, Elmer and Bea Weiss bought the fledgling Wilderness Campground in the fall of 1969 and began operations in May of 1970. Bob has lived at the park ever since, and has witnessed all the improvements and changes to the park over the years. Melanie’s family camped at Wilderness Campground during her childhood. At that time she had no idea just how much a part of her life Wilderness Campground would become. She and Bob were married in 1985. Together they raised two girls, Ashley (Myles) and Laramie. Bob and Melanie now have three grandsons (Easton, Bruchs and Connor) who also spend a lot of time at the Wilderness Campground.
