Rod & Gun Park

Eau Claire Rod & Gun Club

Rod and Gun Park in Eau Claire is one of the most unique community parks in the City. While Rod and Gun is a relatively small park at 36 acres, it is one of the most visited.

Rod and Gun Park is a 36-acre community park located on Eau Claire’s west side and northwest of Carson Park on the shores of Half Moon Lake, with access off Clairemont Avenue. The park is adjacent to Carson Park, Eau Claire’s largest and most used Community Park. Both Rod and Gun Park and Carson Park share the shoreline of a 136-acre oxbow lake called Half Moon Lake.

Rod and Gun Park has a unique character and challenge. The 36-acre park has 8 small ponds that are connected through a series of small streams. The ponds are Spring fed. The park has a perched water table that produces surface springs that saturate some of the soils outside of the ponds and streams. The park is a local favorite and is used for picnics, weddings and group gatherings.


Facilities include one picnic pavilion, a sand volleyball court, and many attractive ponds and streams. Excellent scenery is its main attraction. Enjoy just by walking around the park. Gun Club is the oldest continuous operating sportsman’s club in the state of Wisconsin. With a current membership of approximately 1,000 that club looks eagerly toward providing sporting activities in a positive, family atmosphere for the people of the greater Eau Claire area.
