Wisconsin State Parks currently have ten cabins for people with disabilities. There are two rustic cabins and eight with more amenities.
Accessible cabins are available to those with disabilities preventing them from enjoying the State Park camping experience. Even though each stay per family is currently limited to only 4 nights per year, the cabins continue to be booked solid during every camping season. The need for these cabins is overwhelming. Most state park campgrounds offer a reservable accessible campsite.
As the campground at Harrington Beach State Park was put on paper, one camping site located near Pucket's pond was designed to allow the construction of a new handicapped accessible cabin.
Each of these cabins is built with donated funds, matching grants, donated professional services from designers, architects, construction project managers, and plenty of volunteer labor from local skilled tradesmen. The friends group owns the cabin project during construction and then turns it over to the State of Wisconsin on grand opening day.
As the 2020 camping season opens in May, call the office to check for open dates to reserve the cabin. Cabin reservations for accessible cabins will be accepted at the 10 Wisconsin State Parks with cabins starting Jan 10th. Pick up the reservation form at the state park or print from https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/parks/camping/cabin.html. Take it or mail to the chosen park directly and write Cabin Reservation on the envelope. For more information, contact Harrington Beach State Park office at (262) 285-3015.
