Cabins Fees
The Rent-a-Camp fee for cabins is in addition to the camping and utility fees. Fees must be paid in full at the time the reservation is made. The $5.00 reservation fee is non-refundable. The primitive, two-room cabins are equipped with only the bare essentials: one full-sized bed with mattress, two sets of bunk beds with mattresses, an electric heater, a drop-leaf table with chairs, and ceiling fans. Many cabins are handicapped accessible and can be approached via vehicle. Showers, electricity, charcoal grills and picnic tables are available at the campgrounds; however, campers must bring their own bed linens and personal items. Dogs and other pets are not allowed at cabin sites.  *Note: 'Siloam Springs' cabin rents for the large tent fee.
