Buck 'n Beam's Social House & Campground is a family-owned small business that was built from the ground up and first opened in the Spring of 2012. Located on seven acres, we are nestled in the Northwoods amongst the pines. In order to minimize our impact to the land, campsite locations were selected based on the existing trees and topography.

Greg Symbal and Chip Bell are the current owners of Buck 'n Beam's. Greg is the son of the previous owners, Bob and Vicky Bowerman. Chip is Bob and Vicky's son-in-law. Family is important to us and remains the core of our business.


Why the name Buck 'n Beam's?


Buck and Beam are the names of the original owners' Basset Hounds. Their names played an integral part in the naming of the business. Dogs are a big part of their, and the current owners', lives. We love our four-legged family members, which is why the campground is dog friendly. While Buck has since passed, you can still catch Beam welcoming guests and keeping an eye on things.
