Jim Button, owner of Evergreen Campsites & Resort in Wild Rose, Wisconsin, has grown up in the campground industry or outdoor industry with his parents. Button bought the campground from his parents 21 years ago. Even though he grew up in the Milwaukee area as a child, he considers himself "just a little Wild Rose boy." He loves Waushara County and all it has to offer. Button has built Evergreen into a camping destination where memories are made by families each year.

According the Waushara Argus news site, Jim received two of the top National awards - The 2017 Plan-It Green Friendly Park Award (Large/Mega Park) & The 2017 Campground Partner Award - while attending the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) Convention in Raleigh, North Carolina.  There are 12,000 campgrounds or RV parks in the National Association and Jim Button, the little Wild Rose boy, took home the top honors. There are mega parks much bigger than Evergreen and after the National committee visited and rated the parks, Button came out on top. “When I took over the campground it was rated a 5 star and today it is rated a 9.5 star,” said Button. “I am constantly improving Evergreen and I want everyone that visits here to create lifelong memories. We provide camping, a waterpark, Chippy Train, and so much more. This is where memories are made,” he added. Button is also quick to recognize that he could not run the campground operation by himself and he surrounds himself with good people including Hannah Ehlen, his operations manager of 11 years, 5 other full time employees and in the summer he adds 45 seasonal workers. Many of the seasonal employees are high schools students from local schools that enjoy camping in Wisconsin.
