Posted: Tue, Aug 7, 2018 2:35 PM

For Decorah area residents wanting to get away for a couple of nights or longer, the State of Iowa parks system has a new option--a 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 15th through October 31st.  The cabin can be reserved 12 months in advance.
Yellow River Forest has 8,500 acres for trout fishing, hiking, hunting and more. The park features more than 25 miles of trails for backpackers and equestrians.

Reservations can be made at or by calling (877) 427-2757.
