How often do you get to enjoy the out-of-doors at a campground in a state park?  New Horizons Un-Limited through our Access Recreation Initiative has designed the accessible full-size cabins for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for the several Wisconsin State Parks.

Reserve an Accessible Cabin in Wisconsin State Parks
« Reply #1 on: June 08, 2016, 11:09:40 AM »

Each year Wisconsin State Parks  accept Accessible Cabin reservations on January 10,for the coming camping season.  There are eight accessible cabins currently available in the Wisconsin State Park System.  The cabins are available for use exclusively by people whose physical disability makes use of traditional camping facilities very difficult or unlikely.

Accessible modern cabins are  available at Wisconsin's Harrington Beach, Kohler-Andrae, Mirror Lake, Buckhorn, High Cliff, and Potowatami state parks, Richard Bong State Recreation Area and Kettle Moraine State Forest-Southern Unit.  Rustic accessible cabins are available at Copper Falls and Blue Mound state park.

The rental fee is $30.00 per night plus a $4.00 reservation fee.  The cabins are available from May 1 to October 15. Because of high demand, reservations are limited to 4 nights per year, per location.  Reservation applications (DNR form 2500-085) and details about the cabins can be obtained at DNR or by contacting the individual park office via phone.

Reservations will be processed as follows: January 10 to January 31, applications from persons with a permanent, severe physical disability, who require a wheelchair as sole means of mobility and require assistance with personal care needs, will be confirmed.  Starting February 1, applications from persons with a physical disability who require a wheelchair as sole means of mobility and require minimal assistance with personal care needs will be accepted.  After applications have been processed for the first two categories, applications from persons who require a wheelchair as a means of mobility or who use adaptive equipment for mobility reasons or who have other disabilities will be processed.  --
