Washington State Parks ‘roofed accommodations’ now available for rent

Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Parks & Recreation District cabins also available for rent

Washington State Parks announced that roofed accommodations, such as cabins and yurts, are now available to reserve at more than 30 state parks.

These facilities are located all over the state, including parks near the Hood Canal and Puget Sound. Roofed accommodations at state parks include cabins, vacation homes, yurts and rustic shelters. Teepees, platform tents and a fire lookout also fall into the rustic shelter category as well.

The rental facilities will be cleaned and sanitized to prevent the spread of COVID-19 between uses. To give staff adequate time for these safety procedures, check-in time is now at 4 p.m. instead of 2:30 p.m. Check-out time is still 11 a.m.

Occupants staying at these roofed accommodations must bring their own bedding, linens and towels, the release states. Reservations can be made online at washington. goingtocamp.com or by phone at 888-CAMPOUT (888-226-7688).

At the local level, all three Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Parks & Recreation District cabins have been open for renters at Fay Bainbridge Park after Kitsap County moved to Phase 2 in late May. According to BIMPRD Park Services Division Director Dan Hamlin, COVID-19 guidelines at these respective cabins include:

• No more than eight people per site, only five of which can be from outside a household

• Maintain social distancing.

• Limited services/ no showers

• Come prepared with your own hand sanitizer

• Wear a mask when you can’t maintain 6-feet separation from others

• Please don’t visit if you are feeling ill
