Housing Options


Our four dorm buildings house over 400 people. Each dorm is split into 8 rooms each with its own bathroom. Linens can also be provided. In the summer, our campers and leaders are housed in the dorms. In the school season, our groups can rent any or all of the dorms to accommodate their group.

Lumberjack Lodge

Houses: 18
Lumberjack Lodge creatively combines the 1800's feel of a logging camp with all the 21st century comforts of home. You can curl up with a good book near the stone hearth fireplace or soak your cares away in the hot tub after your adventure on the ropes course.

The Logging Village

The Bunkhouse was created with families and small groups in mind. This building houses our Assignment Teams and their families throughout the summer and small groups of 30-40 throughout the school season.

The Woodchipperand Boomscooter are identical buildings which flank the Bunkhouse with equally great views of the lake.

Woodchipper and Boomscooter

Woodchipper and Boomscooter offer dorm style housing with separate male and female wings as well as a kitchennette and common room in each building. These buildings are perfect for smaller groups with a minimum 25 guests required to book, or 50% occupancy, per building. These buildings may be booked individually or as a part of the Logging Village.


Stay in one of our dorms filled with bunk beds, shop around our camp store, and get ready for incredible food to be served in the dining hall.

Grab a latte at Carlton's coffee shop, play ping pong in the game room and get excited for club in the Sawmill!


Go mountain biking on one of our fat tire bikes, challenge your friends to a game of sand volleyball or basketball, then head over to our three person giant swing!

Fly into the water on our zipline or ropeswing then play on our waterfront, obstacle courses or take a paddle board out on the water.

Choose your challenge on our indoor climbing wall, shoot hoops in our gym, play a round of disc golf on our 18 hole course and after head over to the Timber Carts!

Play a game of whiffle ball with you cabin or climb up the Tall Timbers!


We welcome kids of all abilities to our camps. At Timber Wolf Lake, all of our main buildings are accessible to strollers or wheelchairs, and we have a handful of cabins that are designed to be accessible (special housing needs may be requested by your child's trip leader).

Walkways around camp are paved. We will also do our best to help every guest participate in activities. We want every kid to have the best week of their life as they come to camp!
