The historic Camp Wandawega, since 1925, (a.k.a. Wandawega Lake Resort / Wandawega Inn / Hotel Wandawega) now recognized on the National Register of Historic Places - once known as “a disgrace to The Great State of Wisconsin.” A rich history including criminals on the run, contempt of court, illegal liquor, gambling, prostitution, kidnapping, murder/suicide. It was “a bawdy house of ill fame,” the subject of numerous federal raids and prohibition padlocks. Then - throughout the 1950s - a modest lake resort, and - from the ‘60s through the ‘90s - a Catholic Church Camp for Latvian refugees. Now, it’s an event venue and creative retreat space for companies, families, groups, and organizations looking to reconnect to the simple pleasures of simpler times. Rustic accommodations for up to 60 overnight guests, and events/seminars with up to 150 attendees. Because of the historic, rustic, no-frills accommodations, we insist that guests first read our “Manifesto of Low Expectations” to be sure they come prepared to “go back in time.” It’s a big part of the charm of the place, but it’s admittedly not for everyone.
