Handmade deck chairs from Camp 20

posted Jan 20, 2013, 8:13 PM by Denise Smith   [ updated Jan 20, 2013, 9:01 PM ]

If you've stayed in one of our cabins, you've seen our Adirondack chairs on the porch, just waiting for you to relax and watch the river or enjoy a quiet summer evening. Did you know you can buy one to take home for yourself? 


Each chair is handmade by Gary. They have curved seats and a curved back--the most comfortable outdoor furniture you'll ever own. Each one sells for $95 unfinished (so you can stain or paint them any way you like) and you can pick them up right at Camp 20 farm.


Gary has been making custom furniture and cabinets for 25 years--if you're interested in having him make something special for you, give us a call! (715) 674-3814


Farm Walking Trails

posted Aug 5, 2012, 11:41 AM by Denise Smith

We've always had walking trails available to guests all throughout the farm--Gary even mows them during the height of summer so you won't be swallowed by the grass--but we finally got all of our trail signs up! The farm is mostly made up of wide open fields separated by strips of forest and cut in half by Camp 20 Creek, so it has never been an easy place to get lost--you just follow the creek downstream, look for the next open field, or head uphill and you'll eventually find yourself atop the sledding hill. Now you'll have signs to help you get back on track and to know exactly where you're going. Remember to bring along water, especially during these hot summer months, and to still pay careful attention to where you're going. Ask us how to get started and which way to go. August is blueberry season, so we can even direct you to the blueberry patches.

The Old Swimmin' Hole

For those of you brave enough to take a little chilly water, the weather should be just fine for taking a dip in the Rat River that runs through the whole town--yes, it's the same one you cross when you drive down main street. Come down to the bridge near the "Rustic River" cabin and climb into the swimming hole. Our kids used to spend every day in there all summer long--we'd have to lure them out with food just to get them to take a break!
Fun fact: the third culvert (when you're standing ON the bridge facing downriver it's the farthest to the right) has colder water coming out of it. Why? There's an underground spring that feeds into it from just the other side of the bridge.
Please be careful if you do go in--the currents can be fast, rocks are often hidden by mud, and Camp 20 takes no responsibility for anyone who cares to take a dip in this public river.


Kickin' off December

It seems like we've already had more snow fall and then melt than we had all last season. Hope that's a good sign of things to come, ( not the melting part). We still have availability for over Christmas, or enjoy some relaxing time before or after to catch your breath. Cookie baking is always fun in the cabin too!

Trails are open!

Forest County snowmobile trails opened this past week, and are still open. A few trails outside of the county closed because of the warm weather, but it looks like we have some cooler temperatures and a bit of snow on the way. We have great access to the trail system from our cabins. You can just unload your sleds and go.
 
To get updates on the trail conditions, visit http://www.visitforestcounty.com or call our "Snow Line" - 715-478-2024. We're always happy to talk about weather conditions too, just give us a call.
 
Happy New Year!
