Comfort, convenience make cabins a popular alternative for park users

The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks continues to add new cabins to its state park system. The cabins feature all the comforts of home while providing immediate access to the variety of outdoor recreation available at parks and lakes across the state.

These cabins feature amenities such as full bathroom with a shower; kitchen with microwave, refrigerator, and a cook-top stove; beds for as many as nine people; screened-in porch; fire ring; and barbecue grill. Heating and air conditioning, table and chairs, basic pots and pans, and table service for four are also offered at many cabins. Some are handicapped accessible.
State parks that currently offer cabin rental include Cedar Bluff , Cheney , Cross Timbers , El Dorado , Eisenhower , Lovewell , Milford , Perry , Prairie Dog , Tuttle Creek , Webster , and Wilson . Reservations are required, and cabins are in high demand, so renters are encouraged to call well in advance of a planned trip to make sure a cabin is available.
