About the Campground

Killarney Lutheran Camp is located on the shores of Killarney Lake, and is operated by an association of WELS congregations in support of our Children's Summer Camps. We invite you to come and enjoy God's great outdoors in a family-friendly Christian atmosphere in the beautiful Irish Hills.

We "officially" open Memorial Day Weekend and offer our Annual Chicken BBQ on Sunday afternoon. Everyone welcome to come support our camp! Other Events include Pig Roast, and Fall Fest and Winter Snow Fest.

Meet the Cam Hosts/Managers!

Caril Lattas has been a caregiver for the elderly for 9 years while working Camp Bold Eagle. At Bold Eagle, Caril was the camp manager where she was the go-to girl who gets it done. Caril grew up in Hillsdale with 5 sisters and 2 brothers. Caril and David have been married for 25 happy years and have dreamt of owning their own camp their whole lives together. Caril will be manning the office and taking care of the bathroom facilities at the beach and campgrounds.

David Lattas has been involved in camps for 15 years, lending his expertise to Camp Michindoh, Camp Bold Eagle, Eagle Outpost and now Camp Killarney! He has had experience as an outdoor education director, nature director, and the nature center coordinator. He taught elementary school for 6 years, and loves to help kids learn about nature. David hails from Jonesville, MI and has a Bachelor degree in Elementary Education with a dual minor in science and physical education.

David and Caril have 6 kids, and 6 grandchildren that they love and will be happy to share with the Camp Killarney family.

Camping at Killarney

Camping at Killarney is a great family destination or getaway! Only minutes from MIS, we are also a quiet family choice for race fans who want to get away from the chaos of raceway camping. The current facilities at Killarney include a bathhouse, with water filling and dump station. We have 30 campsites, most with 30amp electrical hook-up. The upper campground area (10 sites) by the bathrooms is the most flat to accommodate larger RV's.

Our natural terrain is hilly since we are in the Irish Hills and some lower campground sites may require some leveling. We have both sunny and shady sites. Rustic sites are also available to those who prefer to "rough it". Everything is on a first come first served basis. Reservations are suggested on weekends and are available with prepayment.

Any questions about camping may be answered by calling the camp caretakers at the campground office at 517-467-4511.
