About Us :

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.

Cowboy reenactment was awesome, was a little overwhelmed with the huge crowd, hard to navigate between the people. Loved the demonstrations though. Very enjoyable. If mobility is an issue I highly recommend traveling in the cattle car.

Excellent place for late 19th century history. The train ride is very short and pretty below but still fun for all. The museum was very cool as many of the artifacts you could use or touch. The two 16 year old blacksmiths were very disappointing though. They clearly wanted to be else where with thier faces in third phones while sipping coffee.
