Accessible cabin

An accessible cabin for people with disabilities is available at Harrington Beach State Park. The cabin has kitchen counters that allow wheelchairs to roll under them, a bathroom with roll-in shower, family and dining areas and a bedroom large enough for wheelchairs and attendants to move about. The campers sleep on hospital-style beds with Hoyer lifts nearby if they are needed. Additional sleeping space for family members is also provided on a pull-out bed in the living room and on cots on the screened porch.

The Friends of Harrington Beach State Park [exit DNR] and the DNR have partnered together to provide this cabin. The cabin has been built through generous donations and gifts of building funds, building plans and furniture and equipment from a wide variety of organizations and businesses.
