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 some are open year-round. The cabins are located on quiet, isolated sites and many have waterside views. They range in size, accommodating 2-24 people.
Each 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.
