The Wunderbar Eatery and Glampground in Grand Marais has closed and a liquidation sale is underway, according to a news release from Auction Masters. 

Wunderbar opened in 2017 offering a new way to vacation on the North Shore – in vintage campers or lotus belle tents at a campground equipped with TVs, billiards, board games, live music, a restaurant and bar, and more. 

But Wunderbar seems to have hit some financial trouble, with Auction Masters' website noting it is having a bank-ordered liquidation, and seemingly everything – from the campers and tents to tables and chairs – is being auctioned off

Wunderbar hadn't announced anything publicly on its website or on social media as of Tuesday afternoon. However, its Facebook page has been removed, and if you try to make a reservation, you can't (it indicates everything is booked for at least the next two months). 

BMTN has reached out to Wunderbar for comment. 

The auction is open for bidding until Sept. 15 at 6 p.m. 

BMTN visited Wunderbar in 2019 as part of our "Celebrate the North" video series.
