Camp Five Museum

5480 Connor Farm Rd
715-674-3414

In the late 1890's, Camp Five began operations as a logging camp in northern Wisconsin, in 1914, a farm was developed at the site by the Connor Lumber & Land Company to raise meat, produce, and draught horses for their area lumber camps. All logging camps were numbered in succession as forestry moved from one location to another.

In 1969, the Camp Five Museum and Farm Complex opened to the public. It is now operated by the Camp Five Museum Foundation.

The site is unique in Wisconsin. Wisconsin State Researchers have yet to find a similar lumber company farm that still exists. For this reason and because of the logging industry's important role in Wisconsin's history, it was added to the National Register of Historic places by the US Department of the Interior on January 11, 1996. Today, the farm is still in operation and most of the lumber company farm buildings remain, including the four-square Sears farm house.

Been coming here my whole life. Never disappoints. Definitely worth the ticket price! Great photo opps, live animals to pet and feed, and an impressive nature center. Skip the slaughterhouse.

Great place to enjoy yourself for a day. If you have kids, even better for them. The little gift shop is quite reasonable in prices as well as the food court. My only issue is that the train only goes back then forth, there is no round circle for a straight ride. Literally goes in reverse.

Great little trip on a steamtrain. You get off where there is concession stand, museum, gift shop with candy and ice cream, and a barn where you can feed the animals and get up close and personal with the goats, miniature horse, donkey, rabbits, ducks and more. Be orepared though. If you take the forest tour, bring your bug spray. Mosquitoes are awful. But other than that, a great time, especially for kids.

Went there during the "Great Train Robbery". The little 8 year old Cowboy that saved us with the dual six-shooters will forever by our hero! A fun experience and worth the time.

Great place for kids to learn about old ways the jobs were done and able to go into pens with animals and feed them
