Kokee State Park, Kokee
These cabins are a worthwhile option for those looking to reboot. And reboot you will since TVs, phones and internet access were purposefully left out when renovating (and reception for any of these in the park is questionable), giving you more reason to enjoy nearby trails. Located at 3,600 feet elevation, the units available run the range of simple to fairly nice cabin in the woods. We wouldn’t call them “glamping,” though. These cabins are owned by the state but managed locally. The management does a good job of keeping things up. Bedding and fresh towels are provided, and all cabins now include a full-sized refrigerator, coffee maker, stove/oven, toaster, microwave, plates and utensils, and pans, etc. A wood stove (wood provided per night at an extra cost, if needed—probably winter only). They even provide basic cleaning supplies but no laundry (it’s still a cabin in the woods, after all). They have four types of cabins. The Lehua Cabin is the nicest, about 20 percent larger than the others and with better furnishings all around—$119–$139. Next are the four cedar cabins, which we really like, at $99–$119. The Redwood is more basic compared to the others but includes the same amenities for $99–$119. All the above cabins sleep up to four people. The studio cabin and duplex cabin (with units set up like two studios) are $79–$99. The studio sleeps 2 while the entire duplex can be rented to sleep up to 10. 2-night minimum stay, but if you get lucky and book less than a week in advance, you may get them for a single night. Reserve at least a month or two in advance for weekends and school holidays. You must be 25 years of age to check in, and they require ID. Leave it as you found it, or you could be charged extra damage fees.
