Unit Description: Jambo Creek, Home of the Mishicot Sportsman Club was the first place in Manitowoc County to be visited and settled by white men. Jacques VIEAU of the Northwest Fur Company landed on the shore of what is now known as Two Creeks, in 1795. His Mackinaw boat was loaded with goods that would be traded for furs with the Indians. From this place he proceeded on an Indian trail nine miles southwest of the present Jambo Creek property. His family came with him, all in a very large bark canoe with the camping outfit. Later on VIEAU built a trading post on Jambo Creek and one later on, in Manitowoc Rapids. Jambo Creek Trading Post of located on the Old Green Bay Trail.
The Mishicot Sportsman Club was founded in 1947 and has been very active in the community ever since. The village park was originally established by the club in the late 1940’s, eventually being turned over to the Village in the early 1960’s. It was at the time that the club purchased the land now known as Jambo Creek Park. Jambo Creek Park, is roughly about 18-1/2 acre tract located in the Town of Gibson, which is just Northwest of the Village of Mishicot.
Jambo Creek is a Class II Trout Stream and is part of the state’s ICE AGE TRAIL. The property offers a place for picnics, hiking and archery. There is a field course for archery shooters to use and the Clubhouse is available to the members and public for weddings, graduations, class reunions and many other events.

Recently, the family of Francis “Buster” Vander Logt met at the Mishicot Dam for the below photo. In the photo is the son, grandson and two great grandsons. Buster Vander Logt had always enjoyed the East Twin River by the dam for fishing and for just walking around with his wife Ethel. They both enjoyed the village walkway and loved to walk around down there all year long as weather permits. Buster was a Life Member of the Mishicot Sportsman Club, served as President, Director and lots of other positions. The club placed this grill at the dam in Memory of Francis “Buster” Vander Logt in his memory. Many of you might remember Buster at the Farmer’s Market in the Village of Mishicot or in Two Rivers, and Manitowoc. Please use the grill and respect the fact that it can be used for everyone. Enjoy and eat well while fishing or having a picnic. Thank You Mishicot Sportsman Club for the memorial.
