Iowa state parks has a new cabin available for rent at Yellow River State Forest in Harper’s Ferry.

The one-bedroom camping cabin sleeps six people and has two porches, including one that is screened-in. Amenities include a refrigerator, microwave, heating/air conditioning, and a wood fireplace. Camping cabins do not have running water so there is not a bathroom or shower; however, a hydrant outside the cabin provides drinking water. The cabin is located near the park office and is available to rent for two-night minimum stays for $35/night plus taxes. The rental season is April 15 - October 31 and the cabin can be reserved 12 months in advance. 

Yellow River Forest in northeast Iowa has 8,500 acres and is a destination for trout fishing, hiking, hunting and more. The park features more than 25 miles of trails perfect for backpackers and equestrians.

Iowa state parks offer more than 90 cabins in 20 state parks and forests, ranging from yurts to modern family cabins that sleep up to 14. Reservations can be made at or by calling 1-877-427-2757.
