About Sand Haven Campground in New Auburn, WI

The Casselman Family

Meet Your Hosts, Owners, and Operators

We invite you to be our guests at Sand Haven Campground! We are so happy that we chose to move here. Although we love our friends and family back in Minnesota and Nebraska (yes, we bleed Husker Red), there is an unmatched beauty here.

Why did we buy a resort and now a campground? Danielle's answer is jokingly "insanity." Actually, the reasons are several: our love for the outdoors, the closeness of our family, and the ability to help others enjoy their special vacation time. We understand that family life in today's world is very hectic and fast-paced and, sometimes, even frustrating and overwhelming. When you come to Sand Haven Campground, life slows down a little. If we can help you smile, have fun, and enjoy your time, then we have done our job. For us, that is what it is all about.

A little about ourselves...

We (Steve and Danielle) are originally from Nebraska. In 2000, we decided to give up our corporate jobs and purchase a resort in Northern Minnesota. We decided that our sons were growing up too fast, and we were not around as much as we wanted to be. So, we bit the bullet and bought Lakewood Lodge, a small, older cabin resort on Sand Lake. Over the next 20 years, we transformed it into a large 14 cabin resort and made it one of the top family resorts in Itasca County.

After raising both of our boys there, we decided it was time to move on and start the next chapter of our lives. We love what we have accomplished over the last 20 years and want to keep on providing top-notch vacations. So Green Acres called us home. We are looking forward to meeting each of you personally and getting to know you as we have with our past guests. We want to ensure you that we will love and continue to operate GAFC as Kevin and Angie did, and we hope that you will grow to love us as you did them. You can never step directly into the shoes of someone great, but we will try our best. Please be assured if there is ever anything different or wrong that you were accustomed to, please let us know. We are very open to suggestions and comments. Your help will help us continue to make Green Acres one of the top campgrounds in Wisconsin.

Our promise to you...

Your stay with us will be a memorable one. We invite you to experience what we choose for ourselves to enjoy. You might say, "We believe in our product!" We desire to share with you the finest that Wisconsin has to offer -- in a clean, well-groomed setting among friendly people.

We are looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Green Acres!
