Founded in 2020, Camp Kettlewood is actually the second campground to have operated on this beautiful land. The property previously belonged to the Girl Scouts of Wisconsin- Badgerland Council. The Girl Scouts hosted outings and events here from 1967 through 2018. That's over 50 years of learning, laughing, building friendships, and making memories in the great outdoors! We knew that this land was special when we bought it. So, when we decided to turn this campground into...well...a campground, we wanted to respect that rich history and honor it in a new way. You'll notice the campsite signs are new, but the campsite names- like The Hilton, Mushroom Gulch, and Last Resort- are all original. That was purposeful, not only because we couldn't think of any better names (it's harder than you think!) but mostly because we wanted to show respect to what was here before us. We even created a new campsite and named it Oakwood Knoll, which was the previous name of this property. If you keep an eye out, you'll be able to see more subtle nods to the Scouts program incorporated into our decorations at the campsites! Our campsites are each set spaciously apart, so guests can have more privacy than they would at a traditional campground. Our premium sites are also designed for comfort and ease. When you arrive, the campsites are ready for you, so there's no setting up or tearing down. You'll also get to sleep in real beds, as opposed to sleeping in a bag on the ground. Guests can expect to enjoy electricity, flush toilets, coffee makers, propane grills, and the warm ambiance of string lights hung at each site. These sites are perfect for both campers and glampers. We're confident you'll get the perfect mix of relaxation, nature, and comfort during your stay. You'll also certainly get some great Instagram-able photos! Also, while you're here, check out the many places and activities located just a short drive from Camp Kettlewood. As our name suggests, we're adjacent to the Kettle Moraine State Forest, as well as many other parks and nature preserves. You can also enjoy swimming, paddle boarding, boating, and fishing in several nearby lakes. All within 20 minutes or less of our camp, making day trips a breeze! Thank you again for your interest in staying at Camp Kettlewood. We’re very excited to share our summers with you and we're honored to carry on the tradition of this property as a place for making memories- not only as a campground, but also as our home! We are blessed to live on-grounds in the renovated lodge, which was previously the Girl Scout's cafeteria and club house. We've put a lot of hard work into this land and we're pretty proud of what we've been able to accomplish. We hope you will be, too! Sincerely, - Simona & Jeremy Ebner, Owners Camp Kettlewood, Est. 2020

Camp Kettlewood is a special place. The facilities and location exceed expectations. It is camping done right. The grounds are amazing, the sites even better then one could expect. I have stayed with them twice and recommended it to everyone I know.

Retro Holly Trailer
Excellent Midwest Getaway!
Our group rented the Holly and the Airstream, and set up in two tents on that bigger site. We had 7 adults and 2 chihuahuas escaping the city for a rural weekend together, and it was glorious! The weather was perfect (no rain), and it was warm enough in the afternoon to use the cute outdoor shower (whole bathroom situation was great). The hosts were there to greet us, came by with extra firewood, and made us feel welcome and left alone all at the same time. The sites are spread out enough that we really didn't see other campers much, adding to the sense of relaxation and privacy. Trailers had all the cooking utensils we needed, and the grill top for the campfire and the gas grill meant we didn't even need the stovetops. It was great to do all the cooking outside, and save cooler space thanks to our group having two refrigerators. Plus we got to drive golf carts! Woo! Easy drive for Chicago folks, with the Mars Cheese Castle on the way. Our only vacation this year due to the pandemic, but it was a great one. Can't wait to come back next summer and do it all again!

Private & peaceful. Helpful hosts!
Fantastic stay, wonderful & communicative, helpful hosts. I had a few questions for Simona during our stay, asking about additional firewood early in the morning on Saturday (it was chilly!) and whether the pond had toxic algae (nope!) and Simona was super responsive and helpful. The grounds were beautiful, and the bathroom was sparkling clean and private for each campsite — I really appreciate how COVID-conscious Simona and Camp Kettlewood were. The golf carts were easy to us, and everything was very private. We had a really lovely stay and will definitely be coming back!

clean and convenient nature escape
We loved our weekend at the Hilton campsite, it was well set up with amenities to make our experience extremely comfortable. Having golf carts available made packing in and out quick and simple, the bathrooms were close by the site and very clean, and the tents were roomy with comfortable beds. There are multiple outlets in the tents, making it easy to connect lights and fans and any other modern conveniences you might have brought along to nature. It was a great place for us to celebrate our friends’ engagement with an upscale “glamping” experience and we all agreed we’d love to come back again.
