Our company chose Traders Bar and Grill Island Campground to host our annual team-building retreat. The family-run business was on-point in taking care of anything we needed–such as firewood–which we needed several times. 🙂 The canoes are high-quality aluminum, and the life-jackets are modern. It’s clear that safety is important to these guys.
I want to thank you for helping us out with our spring trip last year (April 2012). It worked out great being able to use your campsite. The last trip was amazing and we’re hoping for another awesome trip.
Hi! I am Terry Askevold. I am 58 years old and the owner of Trader’s Bar & Grill and Trader’s Campground. This is a family run business that has been in operation for 25 years.
I grew up in Melrose Park, IL and am a Navy Veteran. I spent 15 years as a floor broker and order filler at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). I was trading in the S&P pit with Index Commodities and Packers Trading Co.
I have three beautiful daughters. Lauren is 29 years old and is a graduate from UW Milwaukee and has a career in Athletic Training. She is now employed at IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL. Krystal is 28 years old and is the manager and runs Trader’s on a day to day basis. Rose is 20 years old and is going to MATC and also works at Trader’s.
The Askevold family is looking forward to seeing you all this summer for fun in the sun!
