Pine Lake Camp
Waupaca, WI

Pine Lake Camp is located 9 miles south of Waupaca, WI, on County K. The camp roots can be traced back to 1947 when the former United Lutheran Church purchased a large tract of property on Pine Lake and developed a camp designed to serve youth. A few historic facilities were kept including Cedar Lodge, a quaint building with a natural stone fireplace overlooking the sandy lake. The unique natural features of the camp include a long point surrounded by water, hilly back country with trails that wind through ponds and meadows, and beautiful pine and oak trees which provide color throughout the seasons of the year. A beautiful log chapel, dining hall, and several improved retreat and conference facilities make this site particularly attractive to year round use.

While you are here, we invite you to wander the 150 acres and to experience faith and life from a whole new perspective. Many of our facilities are new or have been updated within the past several years. You will find comfortable lodging and great food as you leave the busy-ness of the world behind to enjoy the quiet of a late autumn day or the sparkling contrast of fresh snow on deep forest green pine branches outside your window. The fireplaces become warm with conversation and friendship, and the coffee is always on!

Pine Lake provides food service to all groups in its dining room. Groups join together at meal time for great food and fellowship. We ask that your group assist with set-up and clean-up when food service is requested. Bedding is available when arranged at an additional fee. There are trails for hiking or skiing (equipment provided), fields for gaming, tennis and basketball seasonally. Even into the winter, Redwood Lodge is open as a large activity space for indoor recreation out of the snow or rain.


Pine Lake Facilities

There is a wide variety of lodging and meeting space available to suit your group's needs. Pine Lake Camp can accommodate a group of 8 or 80 any time of the year and then some.

At Pine Lake’s Evergreen Lodge, you'll find the freedom to relax, create and share time with friends new and old. The Evergreen Lodge is a high comfort adult facility with many of the amenities found in hotels. There are 12 bedrooms with attached bathrooms (2 private, 10 semi-private). Full linen service is included. Two large meeting rooms, projection equipment, tv/dvd and wireless internet are available for groups using this facility.

Juniper Lodge is made up of four rooms, each with it’s own shower and bathroom—one lodging room meets ADA accessibility standards. The four rooms flank a large gathering area with a gas fireplace and an efficiency kitchen.  Sequoia houses two rooms that sleep up to 10 people in bunks. Each room has it’s own bathroom and shower. Although Sequoia does not have a gathering space of its own, retreat guests typically use the Lakeside Room in the Dining Hall to gather in.  Pine Lake’s other housing accommodations are varied and will be suitable for most any group using the facilities. Also at Pine Lake, low ropes challenge elements are available for group-building. Cross-country ski equipment is available seasonally.
