Pammel State Park

Cabins at Pammel State Park

There are two 24’ diameter Yurt style cabins. Yurt cabins are soft-sided structures that are commonly found in the western United States and are of a unique design to provide comfort in a more versatile setting. Our Yurt cabins sleep 8 people and are air-conditioned & heated. Each cabin has a small kitchenette that includes an electric stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator, counter space and cabinets. Other furnishings include two sets of bunk beds (double-bed on bottom, single-bed on top), a sleeper sofa and a kitchen table and chairs. An exterior deck is attached to each cabin, along with a hooded BBQ grill, ground-fire ring and water hydrant. Cabin renters must use the bathrooms in campgrounds.


PAMMEL PARK CABINS: Pammel Park is located 4 miles southwest of Winterset. Directions: From Winterset travel west on State Highway 92 for 1 mile, turn south on County Highway P68 for 3 miles. Two Yurt cabins are located adjacent to south camping loop in Pammel Park. These yurt style cabins are managed as a “3-season” cabin that are open for public use from April through October (mid-November weather permitting) and are available by advance reservation only. The Conservation Board begins booking reservations on January 1st, for each calendar year. Book early for weekends & holidays. Week nights have better availability.
