Overnight guests at Seneca State Forest may select from among eight completely furnished pioneer cabins.  Designed to provide a glimpse of pioneer life, these cabins feature fireplaces, gas lights and woodburning cookstoves.  Although they do not have running water or electricity, they have gas refrigerator/freezers, water from hand-pumped wells and vault toilets. One recently constructed accessible cabin includes supplementary gas heat.

All cabins are fully equipped for housekeeping, including:

  • Cooking, eating, and fireplace utensils
  • Firewood, kindling, and matches
  • Outdoor charcoal grill, picnic table, and porch swing
  • Pots, pans, and dinnerware
  • Beds, linens, blankets and towel sets
  • Toilet paper, soap, dish detergent, and other cleaning supplies.

Cots are available for an additional charge and may be reserved in advance to avoid a handling fee.
