Frequently Asked questions

Q. Are there outlets in the cabin?
A. Yes, but some cabins may only have two outlets, so if you require more for medical or other reasons, please bring a power strip.

Q. Can we use thumb tacks to hang decorations?
A. Yes, we encourage decorating… but please be respectful of the property and try not to leave any marks!

Q. Is there anywhere to cook my own food?
A. The recreation hall (church) has a secondary kitchen. There are also outdoor fire pits and grills.

Q. Are the cabins temperature controlled?
A. All available indoor lodging is heated and there are thermostats.

Q. Do I have to park in the East Cranberry Lake parking lot?
A. Yes. After unloading your car at your cabin and parking in the East Cranberry Lake parking lot, the walk back to site is about 10 minutes (0.6 miles). If you have mobility limitations, we will certainly arrange a ride for you.

Q. I heard the site becomes swampy when it rains.
A. The center of the large grassy area will become quite waterlogged if it rains. Be sure to bring waterproof socks or footwear and walk the perimeter if necessary.

Q. I heard you aren’t allowed to make noise at this site.
A. Our conversations with the park ranger suggest otherwise, but there are people living close to the site and we should be respectful during quiet hours (2AM to 8AM).
