We Bought a Camp!
As the camp gradually came back to life, David and Tereasa (who still live in Chicago) began hosting overnight guests—guests who see the charm in a throwback vacation that requires a hike to the shower house. They can choose one of the hotel rooms, one of several small cabins, a teepee or a Boy Scout tent.
“People say, ‘It’s open air and bugs can get in!’” David says. “Yeah, that’s how camping used to be.”
