Wandawega Lake Resort/Camp Wandawega is a private friends & family retreat, not a “proper” resort. We are carrying on the proud 90-plus year history of reconnecting people to the simple pleasures of simple times in a no-frills, recreational camp setting. All of our guests are here as part of preplanned recreational friends & family camp programs: sorry, but we do not accept random “walk-ins” or “transients.” But all are welcome to join us on Sunday mornings for Catholic "mass-in-the-grass" service, a 50-plus year old tradition; Sunday's at 10am weather permitting. All proceeds from rentals go into the maintenance, upkeep, and continuing renovation of this historic property.

To support the ongoing renovation of this historic property and the largely philanthropic camp activities, we are continuing the tradition of making a very limited number of accommodations available for self-guided "friends-and-family" recreational camp programs during the summer months. Admittedly, the price is expensive for the primitive nature of the accommodations, so please please please set your expectations accordingly. Remember, you're not just renting a primitive cabin, you'll also have access to the grounds, private beach, woods, communal spaces like the treehouse, campfire pits, sports courts, boats, canoes, smokers, grills, etc.

Again, we are not a "proper" resort, so if you require an immediate response, lots of hand-holding and attention to detail, then this just might not be the best fit for you. OK, you've been warned : ) Thanks.

This private, vintage, modest three-bedroom cabin overlooks a pristine lake and wetlands, nestled within the legendary Wandawega Lake Resort, aka Camp Wandawega. It has one large bedroom and two smaller ones. The large bedroom is suitable for momma and papa bear, while the other two bedrooms are better suited for kids. The cabin can sleep up to 5 guests, 6 uncomfortably. It also includes an outside porch, an interior sitting room, a primitive kitchenette and half bath. For all intents and purposes, there is no heat or AC: just windows to open, and a lake breeze. Please check the weather before you come, and bring an extra sleeping bag if it’s going to be chilly at night.

Please note: The photos are not 100% accurate, as things are always being moved around, redecorated, etc. but they are still indicative of the overall look-and-feel. We strongly suggest you come for a tour before booking if possible, so you can be sure you're into the back-to-basics vibe.

Zugang für Gäste

Get "back to basics" at Camp Wandawega. Our guests aren’t renting a random cabin as much as they’re immersing themselves, their friends and family into the whole old-school camp experience featuring a full slate of self-guided recreational camp activities such as canoeing, boating, fishing, hiking, biking, horse shoes, tennis, shuffleboard, archery, campfires & s'mores. The fact that we have no modern conveniences is part of our charm. If you're not sure this is for you we suggest coming up for a visit and a tour before staying with us. If you’d like to see an unedited view of camp, simply search for us on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), Instagram, Youtube and Vimeo to see us through the eyes of the many who have visited over the years. Our guests have access to simple, back-to-basics camp showers, like you recall from your childhood summer camp. Outdoor grills and smokers are also available, as are a number of nearby restaurants and bars. If you’re looking for fine lodging, look elsewhere: this is old school cabin-living, like you remember from sleep-away camp.

Interaktion mit Gästen

We are often up at Camp on weekends, so perhaps we'll see you. We'll always have a local property manager on call should you need anything, In general, we leave our guests to their own devices, and are always happy to offer up suggestions of things to do, places to go, etc.

The overarching rule of thumb is: common sense and respect.
No Smoking indoors. Do not drop butts on the ground outside.
Also, while we have been pet-friendly over the years, unfortunately we have transitioned to a "no pets" policy. Although we are dog lovers, the extra wear and tear has become prohibitive. Even though we charged a $50 pet surcharge, we still couldn't keep up with the extra cleaning and repairs that were required. And now that we are recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, we have to be even more careful about the ongoing preservation and renovation of the property.
Thanks in advance for respecting the historic and natural assets of Camp Wandawega.

Step back in time and relive your childhood camp experience! So much to do there, but also the best place to relax and do nothing! We even had a frog in the shower!

Wonderful classic camp setting, with endless games available for all ages. Loved playing class camp games, walking on the trails, and sitting by the fire. Lake & swim platforms were also a lot of fun. Old cabin was wonderfully decorated with period furnishing. We will be back next summer.

Tereasa and David, along with the whole staff at Camp did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome.

The "Manifesto of Low Expectations" makes it seem like it'll be much rougher than it actually was: we were very comfortable in our cabin. We had a lovely time just walking the paths, playing games, and sitting on the dock. We've already started assembling a list of what we can leave behind and what we should bring instead for our next visit!

Magical only begins to describe this place. My daughter wanted to stay forever (and so did I!) So much to do on the grounds that there's no need to leave! Pack some food for the grill and enjoy all that this place has to offer: boating, swimming, fishing, archery and more! We can't wait to return and hope to make it a yearly trip!

We absolutely loved our stay in the Raccoon cabin and Camp Wandawega. The serene, beautiful setting was exactly what my family and I needed. Our girls had a blast running around and exploring. Our cabin was perfect, well maintained and comfortable. But as Tereasa and David state in their website, it is not a luxe hotel room but a no frills cabin. With that said, it is impeccably decorated and clean. The grounds are also well maintained with lots of activities available. Camp Wandawega is a magical, happy place and we cannot wait to return!
