About Us

From Chuck Wagons to Station Wagons - Since 1887 Wenzel has been sleeping under the stars! Rooted in the outdoors by creating and designing products that help you enjoy your adventures more comfortably. So…lets go camping!

Celebrating 130 years of bringing families together and creating lasting memories. The world has ‘progressed’ a lot since the early days of Wenzel. We live in a society riddled with technological advances, computers and 24 / 7 internet connectivity. We’ve gone from ten miles per day to seventy-five miles-per-hour. The more we become connected to our man-made, virtual environment the more disconnected we become from our natural environment. 

But wait…outside there is a distant noise. The sound of chirping birds and babbling brooks - and faintly, in the distance, there is the sound of rustling leaves. Somewhere, hidden in state and national parks, or even in our own backyards, is the fueling station for our souls, and we must find it. Being in the outdoors is great for our minds and bodies and it helps children develop creative thinking skills. We know this innately because the knowledge lives at the core of every human being. Wenzel believes it so strongly that we have built a company around these basic human needs.

The need to escape, the need to recharge and the need to connect.

Wenzel creates the modern tools that families require to escape, recharge and reconnect in the outdoors. At the core of these experiences is ease and comfort. Our modern culture doesn’t put a premium on “roughing it” anymore. Perhaps at one time, the tent that sprang leaks in a rainstorm, itchy paper-thin sleeping bags and rocky floors were romantic, but not anymore. Romantic is helping your 9 year-old son meet his first frog face-to-face. Romantic is explaining to your 6 year-old daughter that the Milky Way is not just a candy bar. 

At Wenzel, or mission is to help more folks experience the outdoors that we know. New features and stylish details make for the perfect campground setup or festival weekend. We know what camping is like, which is why we make the tents easy to set up, take down and pack away for next time. We make sleeping bags that unroll into roomy, warm cocoons that re-pack neatly to fit into tight spaces. We offer camp pads that smooth out the rough forest floor, making outdoor experiences more comfortable than ever. But more importantly, we are ambassadors to the outdoors, beckoning families to return to the place where memories are made and souls are fueled.  From festival grounds to campgrounds - take us along for the ride!
