For the last six years, a growing group of Fox Valley volunteers have installed and maintained a growing fleet of webcams overlooking Lake Winnebago. This initiative is of great value to the local boating public and others who enjoy our beautiful waterfront, facilitating the ability to surveille weather changes, monitor for issues that pose a safety risk residents and property.

For the unacquainted, these webcams, while not without cost to their sponsors, are free to view by the public at the following link. The appended map displays where webcams are currently operational thanks to generous contributions on behalf of the City of Neenah, Wind Power Surf Shop, The Neenah Nodaway Yacht Club, The Fox Valley Sailing School, The Harbor Bar, The High Cliff Yacht Club, and many members of our local boating community.


I am reaching out in hopes that, as a valued member of our sailing/boating/safety/waterfront community with a vested interest in preserving the continued safe access and preservation of Lake Winnebago, you will consider contributing to our annual fundraiser to keep these webcams free and available to all for another year. Contributions of any amount are genuinely appreciated and meaningfully get us closer to our goal of $5,000. To support this important project, kindly navigate to the link below:


We appreciate your willingness to share this opportunity to support the continuation of the Fox River System Webcams with others who also enjoy and appreciate the beauty of our waterfront and Lake.

Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have suggestions for how we might improve this collaborative initiative, we hope you won’t hesitate to contact us.

Wishing you strong tail-winds and safe harbors,

Geoff Catlin

  1. I understand the strong involvement of sailing interests in the camera system. My comment is concerning the Neenah Harbor Cam. I deeply enjoy looking at the scrolling views around the harbor, especially Doty Park and Riverside Park. My concern is: why waste the stops and views of the empty harbor during the n0n-sailing portion of the year? They just become boring empty water/ice views. Could you not replace those with longer views, or even extra views, of the shoreline, highlighting the lovely homes and scenery in the two parks? I lived in Neenah many years, with fond memories, in the Harbor Cam allows me to vicariously reconnect. Thank
