Kohler gets OK for 250-acre tent retreat

TOWN OF WILSON, Wis. — The Kohler Co. has local approval to develop about 250 acres of woodland along Lake Michigan for a tented retreat.

Town of Wilson plan commissioners approved the project called Tented Forest with certain conditions. Kohler must modify lake access for surrounding neighbors, which had been threatened by the development. The Town Board must still OK the project.

The Sheboygan Press says the outdoor lodging retreat includes 15 permanent tented structures, a lodge and a maintenance building.
