Cabins

RusticRates: $60 — $80

The park has 19 one-bedroom rustic cabins available from April 1 through October 31 capable of accommodating six persons. The cabins were built in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corps and retain the charm and design of that time. Five cabins are located on the lakeside. Fourteen sit on the ridge.

Most cabins have a combined living and sleeping area with two double beds and a sofa sleeper. Cabins have hardwood floors and screened-in porches. Modern conveniences include full bathrooms with tub/showers and full kitchens with refrigerator, stove, toaster, and coffee maker. There is no air-conditioning. Cabins are fully equipped with linens, cookware, cooking utensils and grill. Electric heat and a fireplace is available. Firewood is provided seasonally. There are no televisions or phones.

Parking is extremely limited. Do not attempt to tow or park a trailer in the cabin area. Most cabins require a set of stairs to get to from the parking area.

Pets are permitted in Cabin 6 only. There is an addition charge of $15.00 per night per pet.
