Notes

FIREWOOD ALERT
Emerald ash borer (EAB) has been confirmed in a number of counties throughout Iowa. As a result, the entire state of Iowa is now under state and federal firewood transport quarantines. It is in direct violation of the federal quarantine to transport firewood from a quarantined area into a non-quarantined area. Park visitors are cautioned not to transport firewood across county lines in Iowa or across state lines since the movement of firewood throughout Iowa or to other states poses the greatest threat to quickly spread EAB even further. Do you part to help prevent the spread of EAB and other woodland pests. Please consider buying firewood locally near the park you are visiting and burn it all during your stay. For more information about EAB and the federal firewood transport quarantine, visit: www.iowadnr.gov/firewood

Stay Requirements: This cabin has a week-long stay requirement of Friday to Friday beginning the weekend of the Memorial holiday weekend through the Thursday after the national Labor Day holiday. The cabin is available outside of these dates for a minimum 2-night stay.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellation fee of $5 for online cancellations or $7 for call center cancellations applies for all cancellations. Cancellations which occur 15-29 days prior to arrival will result in a forfeiture of one night's/day's rental fee and tax plus the cancellation fee. Cancellations less than 15 days prior to the arrival date will result in a forfeiture of two night's/day's rental fee and tax plus the cancellation fee. If the cancel fee plus the forfeiture amount exceeds the total amount of fees originally paid, DNR will not collect any additional money.

Change Policy: A $5 change fee applies. The last day to change a reservation is 15 days prior to arrival if paying by credit/debit card and 21 days prior to arrival if paying by check.
