General Cabin Information

Pinconning Park has 6 log cabins.  The cabins are 1-room structures, and measure 13 feet wide x 19 feet long.  There are 2 bunk beds in each cabin (single mattress size), and sleep for people.  The cabins also feature electricity, lighting, a table, 2 benches, and furnaces. There are no plumbing, water, or toilets in the cabins.  All cooking is done outside.  Each cabin has an outdoor grill, fire ring and picnic table.  Five of the cabins are grouped together in a very shady section of the campground, close to the bathhouse. A sixth cabin is situated several hundred feet north.  Cabin renters will provide their own bedding.  It is wise to consider bringing along a circulation fan during the hot days of summer.  The cabins are frequently booked well in advance during the summer, especially on the weekends.

A note about pets

While pets are allowed on campsites, they are not allowed in the cabins, or the cabin sites.  This rule is intended to help maintain a safe, clean and healthy environment for our customers, by eliminating the potential for the spread of animal fleas, pet accidents on the wood floor, etc.  Unfortunately, the park staff has had instances in the past where cabin customers promised to keep their pet in their vehicle, or on the cabin sites, and the staff found the pets were snuck into the cabins at night.  Therefore, the park determined that it is necessary to prohibit cabin renters from allowing pets on the cabin sites altogether.
