Camp Manito-wish YMCA is located just west of Boulder Junction, Wisconsin on Hwy K, in the heart of Vilas County. We’re surrounded by the Northern Highland State Forest and several hundred sparkling lakes, rivers and streams. Fortunately, we’re also served by a network of state and county highways that make getting here feel like less of a drive and more like a sightseeing trip. Please refer to these directions to help you on your way!

What a great treat to see 12 advanced trips come in and learn about the trail experiences of each of them. They start at camp, go off on a well planned and executed long wilderness experience, and return to camp on the same day, 12 different groups. No one else does this!
