Michigan State Park Mini Cabins and Camper Cabins

Michigan State Park Mini Cabins and Camper Cabins

It’s spring, and now that the snow is gone it’s time to start thinking about vacation plans. It might be a little on the cool side for tent camping just yet, which is why Michigan state park mini cabins are a great option for early-season travelers (especially in the Upper Peninsula). Throughout the rest of the year, these cabins make a great option for those who don’t have an RV and either don’t want to set up, maintain and take down a tent or want more flexibility for weather and quick entrance/exit.

Michigan state park mini cabins are set up to sleep four people, with bunks and mattresses provided. Visitors need to bring their own bedding, pillows and other supplies. Outside of each mini cabin there will be a fire pit and a picnic table. Anyone staying in a mini cabin has full access to the shower and restroom facilities in the campground. Many mini cabins are set up as barrier free/universally accessible.
