Elevate your camping game with some of the coolest and most luxurious places for glamping in Wisconsin from across the state.

From the dense and remote forests of northern Wisconsin to the city streets of bustling Milwaukee, there’s a glamping experience for all in America’s Dairyland. And no matter the season, glamping is a fantastic way to experience the best attractions in Wisconsin.

If you’re a newbie to the Badger State, a hiking trip to see the sights of Lake Superior, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, and lush forests of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is a great place to start. But if you’re more of a city dweller or coming up from Chicago, the state’s southern region also offers plenty to do around Madison and Milwaukee.

And while you’re here, take your pick from unique yurts, trendy campers, and even a treehouse from this top list of the best Wisconsin glamping for your next getaway.

  • Nearest town: Helenville
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

The property is well-positioned between Milwaukee and Madison, making for a great weekend getaway from the cities. Bargain hunters will appreciate being near the Johnson Creek Premium Outlets, while more outdoorsy types will want to check out  Kettle Moraine State Forest and the Glacial Drumlin Trail.
