Camp Wandawega, Elkhorn, Wisconsin
What happens when a stylish couple from Chicago buys the husband's childhood getaway on an unheard-of lake in Wisconsin, 90 miles north of their big city home? All ages-welcome Camp Wandawega is born, that's what. The camp is an Instagram dream with its totally cool yet rustic cabins.
Don't expect all the amenities you'll find at other traditional family camps (reading their Manifesto of Low Expectations is a pre-visit must-do). You'll be responsible for scheduling your own fun — guests have access to a private beach and fishing pier, canoeing, boating, fishing, hiking, biking, archery, and campfires — and making your own meals, but if "cool factor" is on your wish list for a family camping excursion, you won't find a better spot. Summers book quickly, so reserve your cabin on AirBnB ASAP.
