The Rustic Cabin was set in place in late October 2014. SHTRA purchased the cabin from B & C Barns, Shepardsville, MI. It is located atop a ridge that overlooks the lake. The cabin sleeps five people and is accessible. Lighting is solar powered and a propane wall heater provides warmth during cold months. Drinking water and a vault toilet are located near the cabin. The bedroom includes a full-size bed with a single bunk above. A full-size futon is located in the adjoining room. Visitors must bring their own bedding and cooking supplies. A private outdoor grill, fire ring, and picnic table overlook the 410-acre Lake Ovid. In addition to swimming, boating, and fishing opportunities within walking distance, there is also easy access to more than 28 miles of hiking, bicycling and horseback riding trails. There are four equine picket poles and a manure bunker for equestrian campers. Trailer parking is nearby.
Interested in renting The Cabin? Go to 1-800-44-Parks or online, MI DNR Reservations, to register for a cabin rental. Do you want to horse camp when there is no special event scheduled at Sleepy? Don’t have an LQ trailer? Try renting either the modern cabin that has electricity, shower, flush toilet, and microwave or the rustic cabin for a “getaway & go riding” weekend. Get a group together because it’s easy and fun to rent a Sleepy Hollow State Park cabin, with picket poles, overlooking the lake. Bring your dogs to the rustic cabin. It is now allowed for a $10.00 fee.
