Hickory Canvas Cabin Camping Cluster Hickory Canvas Cabin Camping Cluster

This is now part of our Camp Cabin Cluster, along with two 100-year-old Girl Scout Cabins. They make up our most secluded offering – nestled in the Wandawega Woods. The canvas cabin includes a seating area with a couch, lounge chairs, a writing desk, and a small reading & game library. Don’t use the word “glamping” because there’s nothing glamorous about Camp Wandawega. Before booking, our “Manifesto of Low Expectations” is required reading.

+ SLEEPING ACCOMMODATIONS: Combined with the Girl Scout Cabins, this 3-ubit cluster sleeps up to 9 total. Although the canvas cabin has bug-screened, zipped-down windows, and the cabins have screens, you are still sleeping in the woods, so BYOB (Bring Your Own Bugspray). Your beds come made with our standard camp-grade linens, pillows, and blankets. If you require 100 count Egyptian cotton sheets, then bring your own. Always remember to check the forecast: if the weather calls for it, bring your cold-weather gear.

+ AMENITIES: There are only a few. Two full-sized (and old school) coolers. A few interior lights. A couple of solar lanterns. A water cooler. A record player (and a handful of old-school albums). Upon check-in, you get the standard-issue camp towel per person, and a bar of soap – other than that, you’re on your own, campers!

+ CAMPER’S PATIO: A few steps down the short path from your camping cluster is a private outdoor dining area that includes the basics: A table for 4, a propane grill (with a few grilling tools to get you started), a private campfire pit. Pack like you’re coming to camp. With prior arrangement, we’ll schlep your gear up to your camping spot & back down again when you’re ready to check out.

+ LATRINE & CAMP SHOWERS: A rustic trail leads to a private port-a-potty stocked with Mrs. Meyers. (Running water nearby at outdoor spigot). The communal shower building is a short hike away on the main campground. The latrine is kept clean, not at all like those scary ones at music festivals.

+ DECKING IT OUT: Too much information, but for those who care about this sorta stuff, the full bed features a late 1800’s 7-foot tall hand-carved mahogany headboard, and it’s topped with Pendleton Woolen Mills pillows. The singles are circa 1940’s metal beds salvaged from a Michigan camp. The great folks at Old Hickory custom-made the leather & hickory sling chairs, which are paired with a vintage leather sofa. The “deck” floors are layered with vintage rugs and cowhides. (Thank you for leaving your boots at the door, campers!)

+ PRICING: $1100 per night, 2 night minimum, via Airbnb.
