State Park Rustic Cabins

Michigan state parks' rustic cabins can be a functional and enjoyable base camp for family outings, hunting, fishing or hiking. They provide more shelter than a tent during poor weather and are open year-round for a variety of recreational pursuits. The cabins are located on quiet, isolated sites and many have waterside views. They range in size, accommodating a single camper looking for an isolated getaway to groups as small as two to as large as 20 to 24.

 

Rustic Cabin at Wells State ParkEach cabin provides single-sized beds or bunks with mattresses, a table, chairs, brooms and a propane heater or wood stove for heat. Campers should bring bedding, cookware, lanterns, a first-aid kit, ax or handsaw, flashlights and insect repellent. At some of the more remote cabins, additional equipment may be provided to make it easier for campers packing in equipment. Smoking is not allowed in rustic cabins, nor are pets allowed to stay inside.
