Wilderness Unlimited Offers Private Access
Written by Scott Silver   
Tuesday, 02 February 2010

Wilderness Unlimited offers private wilderness in Oregon and Washington States. They compete with publicly managed recreational venues and market themselves as an alternative for those who can afford something better. Interestingly enough "better" does not mean more developed. It means the opposite.
 
Here are two snippets selected from the two items which are appended.

For camping it has to be a big improvement on the Oregon State Parks Division privatization of camp grounds as fee access areas with their institutional ugliness.

There are not chain link fences with numbered spots where you pay for the day and open the door only to hit the neighbor! In fact, the only “improvements” most often added by W.U. are: an outhouse, for obvious reasons and in many areas, wooden picnic tables.

With land managers engaged in transforming public lands into pay-to-play Disney lands, the private sector has rushed in to fill the void.  I don't know about you, but I much preferred public lands the way they were before recreation became the business of the land management agencies.  
For those who can not quite recall when the US Forest Service actually took a wrong turn, here is a snippet quoted from a speech given by Undersecretary of Agriculture Jim Lyons in 1997. It is titled:
"VISIT US--COME AND ENJOY OUR BRAND OF OUTDOOR RECREATION" Recreation in the 21st Century: Increasing Demand, Increasing Recognition

We face some immediate and substantial challenges in this regard.
But, these challenges do afford us opportunities to explore new ways of doing business...
Opportunities to enhance partnerships with the private sector...
Opportunities to market our recreation products...
And make the Forest Service "BRAND NAME" stand for high quality outdoor recreation experiences, synonymous with our mission as an agency "Caring for the Land and Serving People", and equal--in the public's eye--to the kind of quality one comes to expect out of a...

 Coleman stove, or an
 REI parka, or a
 day at Disneyworld, or a
 run down one of the ski trails at Sun Valley

To me the opportunity is clear:  we want to make the Forest Service into the Microsoft of outdoor recreation, and we've already got a good start at doing just that because, as I said earlier, the Forest Service is the world's largest supplier of outdoor recreation annually.

Wilderness Unlimited Offers Private Ranch Access for Fishing and Hunting. Oregon Has a Chapter You Can Join for Uncrowded Access

October 01, 2008 by Lex Loeb  

 
"Each Year There Are More People in Oregon and Fewer Places for Uncrowded Hunting, Fishing and Camping, Locals Have Lost Access and Newcomers Don't Know Where to Go"

Private Ranches for members only is what this non profit organization is all about. Find their website at http://www.wufound.org/ if the link does not work just google key words "wilderness unlimited oregon".

Wilderness unlimited offers access to thousands of acres they manage in Oregon . Only responsible members and their families have access to these lands. The lands are controlled and patrolled by Wilderness unlimited members. In a state like Oregon with it's giant size ranches this seems like a great idea. They offer people access to enjoy the private outdoors in "safer more productive areas." probably meaning more fish and game to hunt. For camping it has to be a big improvement on the Oregon State Parks Division privatization of camp grounds as fee access areas with their institutional ugliness.

Camping, the W. U. Way

Most all Wilderness Unlimited properties allow for camping privileges. Camping W.U. style means, the way camping used to be: “if you don’t bring it, it probably isn’t there.”

As a generality, W.U. properties are “undeveloped”. W.U. staff tries to pick suitable camp locations that: are easy to get to, are relatively flat, have available shade and are as aesthetically pleasing as possible without compromising the landowner’s privacy or resources (wildlife). There are not chain link fences with numbered spots where you pay for the day and open the door only to hit the neighbor! In fact, the only “improvements” most often added by W.U. are: an outhouse, for obvious reasons and in many areas, wooden picnic tables.

Because W.U. properties are pristine, refuse facilities (garbage cans or dumpsters) are NOT provided. W.U. lives by the rule, “you bring it in, you take it with you”.   <CONTINUES>
