The Walrus covered it pretty well, three years ago. It’s not what you feared, or hoped.

It’s a recreation area made from a closed U.S. Air Force Base.  Maj. Richard Bong, a native of Wisconsin, was the top fighter ace for the U.S. in World War II.  He is a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor.
