New Horizons Un-Limited - 2014 - NHU Supports the Building of Wheelchair Accessible Cabins for People with Disabilities in the Wisconsin State Parks

The opportunity to respite in the outdoors helps individuals with disabilities and their families to become reinvigorated and helps us feel more alive, free and happy. Outdoor adventures offer family members to bond in ways that may otherwise be more difficult and it is well known that nature offers good therapy from life’s stresses.

This Season Plan to Enjoy the Outdoors with Your Family and Respite at a Wheelchair Accessible Cabin in the Wisconsin State Parks

If you or a family member has a physical disability and are in need of a break, book a stay at one of Wisconsin State Parks’ seven fully accessible cabins. Each one-bedroom cabin features an open concept great room, kitchen (with roll under sink), bathroom (with roll in shower), bedroom (with adjustable bed), sun porch, accessible fire pit and often nature trails. A camping cabin offers a low cost option for enjoying the outdoors for people with physical disabilities who require accessible amenities.

Make reservations early; accessible cabins fill up fast. For information and reservations, visit Wisconsin DNR Accessible Cabins
