Tuttle Creek SP slated to receive four cabins

Tuttle Creek State Park, near Manhattan, will soon have cabins available for campers.

Immediate plans are for four cabins located in the River Pond Area. Park staff hope to have the cabins ready for the public by Labor Day weekend.

The cabins will be 12 by 28 feet with log sides, log furniture, a fully operational kitchen and bathroom, and room to sleep six.

Currently, only five of KDWP's state parks have cabins, but all of the state parks contain sites for tent and RV camping.

For information, call park manager Todd Lovin at (785) 539-7941.
