QUICK VIEW REVIEW
AS OF JUNE 2014: New name, new owners! On 160 beautiful Egg Harbor acres, Rustic timbers (formally Door County Camping Retreat) offers a lot for the family, for friends, for couples and groups who are into the camping experience. We met with Sherrie, who along with her husband Brian, own Rustic Timbers as of Spring 2014.
With about 260 camp sites, 12 cabins and facilities available, this is a large offering and perhaps the largest in Door County. There is an outdoor heated pool, modern laundry and shower facilities (the cleanest in Door County, they say!), a new adult game room (electronic poker, a bar where cold beer is available), a playground with jumping pillow (new), a full camp store, large picnic pavilion, and 120 acres of nature trails! This is a well thought out facility! Full hook ups, propane sales, wooded sites, cabins and more, and pleasant folks, you can’t help but to find Rustic Timbers a great choice, and a wonderful opportunity to fulfill your camping wishes in Door County! These sites can handle the largest of RVs, 45 footer, amidst large, well-spaced and landscaped sites.
The entire campground, store, pool and most facilities occupy about 40 of the 160 acres – the rest is nature! So hike, and have fun. So you can have campsites, RV sites with electric hook up, or a choice of a couple of kinds of cabins! And, you can see the entire campground layout right on their website! In addition, wireless internet access (WiFi) is available in parts of the camp! You can even check the weather from their website. See below for more details on cabins and more.
Door County Camping Retreat offers two different kinds of camping cabins to rent. The Rustic Cabin, or the Deluxe.
The Rustic Cabins have a small sitting area or living room, and a bedroom. Complete with electricity, a double bed, and a couple of bunks, this is a nice alternative. Guests have to use the campground bathhouse, but there is a water hook up, picnic table and grill there for your use.
2 NEW Rustic Cabins were added in 2005, bringing the total to 6, including deluxe cabins; they have been extremely popular. They are 2-person rustic cabins, and you can see pictures of them on the Door County Camping Retreat website!
The Deluxe Camping Cabins all have a private bathroom with shower or a tub/shower combination. Dishes and cooking utensils are included, and the bedrooms may have a double bed or queen, a small sitting area, and may have a sleeper couch as well. These are a step up from the Rustic Cabins, as they have their own bathroom, which is nice. Picnic table, fire pit outside, and grill are also included. There are about 5 Deluxe Cabins.
NOTE: You must bring your own linens for either version of the cabins, and you can see lots of pictures of the camping cabins right on their website. So take a look for more information, rates and so on.
If you have a group, then Door County Camping Retreat can accommodate you in style! They have a special “group site” that can accommodate up to 20 tents, or up to 100 people and it’s all about 300 feet away from any of the other campsites! This is a great offering, and the site has water, picnic tables, fire pit, and even a dining canopy.
Save time and money:
Want to leave your RV or boat behind and have it ready the next time you come up to Door County Camping Retreat? Well, they have room for 24 right on the grounds, so you can leave your RV or boat, and the next time your are in town, they will be there waiting for you – save gas and time! So store it, and if you camp 5 or more nights in the month you store it, the monthly storage fee will be waived!
Store your campers too, and call ahead when you are returning, and the crew will get the camper to your site for you!
We walked around the grounds, and recently rode around the grounds with the owner, and took a look at the various sites, and toured the store as well. If you are into camping and the great outdoors, you will find the Door County Camping Retreat a true treat – so check it out! And please tell them you found them on DoorCountyNavigator.com!
