This little collection of three Boy Scouts of America platform tents is the same design that our scouts have relied on for decades as they’ve kept themselves physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight. Our first batch of tents was retired from a camp just outside Janesville, Wisconsin: Camp Indian Trails of the Glacier’s Edge Council, nestled on the shores of the slow but mighty Rock River. While those have moved on to Scout Tent heaven, we have replaced them with the same classic design, and they’re equipped with World War II surplus cots, camp-grade folding stools, lanterns and flashlights.
These classic tents are huddled around a campfire pit, adjacent to an old picnic table, situated on a bluff, overlooking the wetlands of Lake Wandawega. While we don’t rent these tents out, we offer them up as a place for our guests to hang out, lounge, and take a few photos.
