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.

Both the Francis Creek and Mishicot Sportsman Clubs would like to Thank the Wis. Wildlife Federation and the Winchester Ammo company for their donation and support of the Mishicot FFA High School Trap Team. Their support of the young men and women means a lot to the parents and clubs. It’s too bad they did not receive the Fire truck escort into the Village when they came back home. If you can please stop to think about this, over 1,500 shooters, and not one person shot, like the media normally tells us will happened. I’m so proud of the parents, students and yes, the school advisor for all her hard work. We are all proud of them and it’s something all of them will remember for the rest of their lives. Good Luck to next year’s team members, we are all standing with you and support you.
