Check In, Check Out:  Your cabin is ready by 4pm on the first day of your stay.  Dinner is included on your first day.  We ask you check out by 11am on the last day of your stay.  Brunch is included on your last day.  On arrival, please check in at the Camp Office and turn in registration forms prior to going to your cabin and unpacking.  Before departure, please check out at the Camp Office and pay (cash or check only) for any extra costs incurred during your stay; Canteen charges, water skiing rides, lessons, etc.  On arrival and departure days, the office is staffed from 9am to 6pm – however, we ask you avoid early arrival and late departure.  This is important for Nicolet Staff who are working hard to clean cabins & community spaces.

Water Skiing: is provided at an extra cost: $15/ride or $85/hour lessons available by reservation.  If you’d like to reserve a lesson, or arrange for water ski & wakeboard rides, please contact Georgi Starz at or listen for announcements in the Dining Hall for open skiing hours.

Parking: Space is limited near cabins, and critical wastewater infrastructure runs underground throughout camp.  Further, camp roads are kept clear at all times for emergency and foodservice trucks and vehicles.  In the interest of guest safety and maximizing the beauty of the camp environment, all vehicles (and any trailers) are parked in the Parking Lot or the Stable Area riding rings.  Nicolet staff members will request the moving of vehicles should they appear near your cabin beyond loading and unloading activities.  Thank you for your assistance!

Canteen: The camp store is open periodically and has snacks, beverages, and limited Camp Nicolet clothing & sundries for purchase. Purchases are charged to the family’s account, settled at check-out.
