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.


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. This listing is not intended to be rented by itself, but along with the adjacent “Modest Cottage Two” so that you and your friends/family can enjoy your own small-scale, self-guided recreational camp. 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.


Get “back to basics” at Camp Wandawega. Our GUESTS AREN’T RENTING A RANDOM CABIN OR HOTEL ROOM as much as they are immersing themselves, their friends and family into the whole old-school camp experience featuring a full agenda of 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 more, numerous aspects of Camp Wandawega were featured in Tereasa Surratt’s books “Found, Free and Flea” & “A Very Modest Cottage.” Also, search for Camp Wandawega on (website hidden), Instagram, you tube and vimeo to see us through the eyes of the many who have visited through the years. All of our guests are here as part of preplanned recreational friends & family camp programs: we do not accept random “walk-ins” or “transients.”


This private, vintage, modest one-bedroom cabin overlooks a pristine lake and wetlands, nestled within the legendary Wandawega Lake Resort, aka Camp Wandawega. The cabin can sleep up to 2 guests. 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.
