A handful of state park cabins are available for rental for the upcoming holiday weekend.

The cabins, which normally require a one-week minimum rental during the peak season, are available for only two-night minimum stay. Reservations must be made through the individual park's office.

The following state parks have one or more cabins available to rent for this coming holiday weekend:



Leading up to the Memorial Day weekend, with its beautiful weather forecast, reservable campsites are nearly gone.

Less than 10 percent of campsites on the reservation system are left, and all but a handful are standard non-electric or tent-only sites. Waubonsie State Park, in far southwest Iowa, has 19 equestrian sites currently open for reservations.

Reservations can be made at until midnight May 24 or through the call center (1-877-427-2757) until 7 p.m. On Thursday, any remaining reservable campsites will go to walk-in status. State parks maintain a minimum 25 percent of all campsite types as walk-ins; however most will be taken early to ensure a spot for the holiday weekend.
