Arts, Recreation and Respite

In partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and State Parks' Friends Groups, we support the building of wheelchair accessible cabins in the state parks of Wisconsin. We encourage you to review the history of this program and the opening of the most recent accessible cabin at Harrington Beach State Park. This accessible cabin openedfor its first full camping season in 2016.

If you or a family member has a physical disability and are in need of a break, book a stay at one of Wisconsin's eight fully accessible cabins. Each one-bedroom cabin features a fully accessible, open concept great room, kitchen (with roll under sink), bathroom (with roll in shower), bedroom (with adjustable bed) and sun porch. Cabin sites also offer accessible fire pits and nature trails.

For more information, visit Wisconsin DNR: Accessible cabins for people with disabilities.
