MADISON — To make camping at Wisconsin State Parks inclusive for people with a range of abilities, the Wisconsin State Parks has accessible cabins available for use.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will be accepting reservations for accessible cabins at Wisconsin state park properties beginning Tuesday, Jan. 10.

Wisconsin state park properties offer 10 accessible cabins for those unable to use outdoor campsites.

These cabins are available only to people with disabilities and their guests and must be reserved ahead of time. In general, the cabins are available for camping from May to October every year.

Throughout the camping season, people are able to make reservations, but it is based on availability, by calling the park.
