If you're looking for a fun, spontaneous weekend getaway, check out these 5 parks with available cabins:

During the peak reservation season (Memorial Day – Labor Day) most state park cabins rent for a minimum one-week stay (Friday to Friday). However, when they are unreserved the Monday prior, they are released for two-day minimum stays. At this point, cabins cannot be reserved through the state park reservation system or through the call center, but are available on a first-come, first-served basis through the park office only. If you are interested in this opportunity please call the respective park office today. If there is no answer, please leave a number where you can be reached.

As of this morning, the following parks have one or more cabins available: 

Lacey-Keosauqua State Park, Van Buren County, six studio cabins, sleep 2-4, $50/day each 


Lake of Three Fires State Park, Taylor County, two studio cabins, sleep 2-4, $50/day each  


Lake Wapello State Park, Davis County, 11 family cabins, sleep 4-6, $85/day or $60/day each


McIntosh Woods State Park, Cerro Gordo County, one yurt, sleeps 4, $35/day    


Waubonsie State Park, Fremont, Shagbark Cabin, sleeps 10, $85/day
