Pheasant Ridge Resort - Frequently Asked Questions
Can I bring my own firewood?
NO - you CANNOT bring in any firewood, no matter where you got it! This is not only against our rules, but also it is AGAINST THE LAW! This is to protect our forest from the spread of disease & the emerald ash borer. (Pheasant Ridge sells firewood & it can be ordered by the bundle or the load).
What is a "Ridgeview Membership"?
For those that do not have a cabin or camper on a seasonal site at Pheasant Ridge, we offer a membership program to purchase that gives you (12) weekends for (2) in a cabana, or (12) nights campsite for (2), plus the use of all the resort ammenities. Limited availabilty.
Do you spray for mosquitoes?
Pheasant Ridge is NATURALLY mosquito-FREE! Our abundant wildlife (frogs, fish, birds, etc.) balance the eco-system. We are lucky to be able to say you will be able to enjoy the outdoors EVEN IN THE EVENING & at night without being "eaten alive"! (if you dont believe it, just ask any of the people that have a cabin or campsite here)!
Do you have overnight camping?
Yes, Pheasant Ridge does offer limited overnight camping for both Rv'ers & tents. Availabilty varies - reservations required. Your site includes assistance with parking & set-up.
Do you sell the sites?
No, Pheasant Ridge is a seasonal resort with several leasing options.
Do you have a pool?
Pheasant Ridge has a swimming area with a maintained beach (in 2008). Many of the lots are large enough for you to install your own pool or play area, making it the ULTIMATE retreat!
Can I ride my ATV at Pheasant Ridge?
To preserve the serenity of the resort, we only allow electric off-road vehicles. There may be exceptions allowed at certain times for short treks (such as hauling gear); but only with prior approval. However, ATV riding is available just a short ride from Pheasant Ridge in Black River Country, where there are hundreds of miles of trails available.

How long does it take to build a cabin?
Pheasant Ridge can usually prepare a cabin within 3 weeks (weather permitting).
Can I bring my dog with me?
Pheasant Ridge welcomes pets that are quiet, well behaved, and that stay in their own lot. All pets must have current vaccinations with a copy of their papers on file with management PRIOR to arrival. Vaccinations MUST include Rabies, DHLPPL, & Bordetella. We also HIGHLY recommend your dog receive the Lymes vaccination to protect him. Guests MAY NOT bring pets (unless prior approval is received, & then they must always be leashed).
Can I get Satellite TV at my site?
Yes, we have a commercial account with Dish Network that allows members to have satellite connected to their units. In some instances, you may also be able to bring your receiver from your home & connect to a Dish at your site. Also there are now portable satellite systems available for RV's. Check with management for your options.
Do you have WI-FI?
Yes, WI-FI is available in certain common areas and at some seasonal sites.
Can I use my cellular phone at my cabin?
Yes, at certain sites you will have a good signal, but those in the valleys may not get a signal (most common areas will not have a signal). Members have had the best luck with U.S. Cellular or Verizon. There are now apps for Smart Phones that allow you to text through our Wi-Fi. With new cell towers being put up we seem to get better service every day!
What is included in the price of my lot?
Seasonal water, monthly pump-out, lot maintenance of tree limbs, grass cutting is included (grass trimming is extra). You also receive several resort member privileges that can be viewed here (and we are always adding more!).
How is electric billed?
Unlike other resorts that put restrictions on electrical appliances, Pheasant Ridge allows any appliances (including air conditioners), by metering each lot separately & billing for your electrical usage monthly.
Can I listen to my stereo or TV outside?
Pheasant Ridge is known for its beauty, serenity, nature & the fact that it is QUIET! (this is one of our best kept secrets!) We preserve that by not allowing outside "noise". "Outside Noise" is anything that your neighbor can hear (music, TV, barking dogs, loud voices).We would all rather enjoy listening to the birds and nature, wouldn't you?
Can I have guests at my site?
Guests are allowed, but must register at main office and park in authorized parking area. Members are responsible for their guests at all times. (Guest fees may apply where guests need assistance from staff). Pheasant Ridge has several events throughout the year, where members are encouraged to invite guests to join in the festivities.
I want to see the resort before I decide to lease or become a member. Can I drive out without an appointment?
We welcome you to tour the property, but you must have an appointment. This is to preserve the safety & security of our members, (we are a gated community). Those that "stop by", will also not have the proper guide to show you the resort, and you will not see all that Pheasant Ridge has to offer. This book clearly cannot be judged by its cover!
Do I have to pay a separate membership fee to enjoy the resort amenities?
Your membership fee is INCLUDED in your seasonal site lease or your cabin site lease at NO EXTRA charge! If you do not lease a site, then you can purchase a membership separately.
Can I rent out my cabin or Park Model?
Yes, many of our members rent out their units through management & enjoy a comfortable return on their investment. You may even be able to pay for your lot lease with your rental income! (We are careful to only rent to members to protect your property.)
Do you have fishing?
Yes, Pheasant Ridge has several fishing holes throughout the property (some are even hidden in the woods). We keep them stocked with Hybrid Bluegill, Perch, and Bass for your angling pleasure. Should you need a fast meal for camp, Pheasant Ridge also has a pay per fishing Trout pond that is stocked with large, succulent trout for the fryer. No fishing license is needed anywhere on the resort.
Are there limits to the amount of times we can come to the resort?
No, Pheasant Ridge is open year round as a vacation retreat.
What other activities can I do while on my vacation?

Golf, casino, canoeing, ATV trails, bike trails, water parks, shopping and much more is close enough to us - yet still away from your private escape!
