Okontoe’s Rustic Retreat & Camping Cabins

Okontoe cabin 1
Okontoe has several rustic cabins and bunkhouses available for rent

We have several rustic retreat and camping cabins waiting for you here at Okontoe.

These wilderness cabins are available for rent during our summer season: Memorial Day weekend through (usually) the third weekend of September, when water is available in the campground.

If you’re hardy and can haul your own water, we’ll rent them into the late fall, until the snow is too deep to drive through! (We currently don’t plow to the cabins during the winter.)

By “rustic” we mean:

  • No indoor plumbing. You’ll use a nearby outhouse.
  • Most of them require you to bring your own bedding.
  • They all have electricity and either a wood stove or propane heater (no air conditioner—that’s not usually necessary up here anyway!).
  • Quaint, but no frills!

Please keep in mind our Quiet Hours from 10:00 pm to 8:00 am! There are others in the Campground besides your group.

Discipleship Camp (DC)

The entire DC is available for rent for a family reunion, retreat, youth camp or other large group. It can sleep up to 22 people, plus a few tents if needed. Bring your own bedding.

The Cook Shack comes with the DC rental. That includes a kitchen with dishes and cookware, refrigerator and freezer space and dining area. Wood stove heat. (You’re responsible for your own meal preparation and cleanup.)

There’s hot and cold running water in the kitchen, plus a cold water spigot outside. Two outhouses. The shower house is available in the campground. Shared outhouses.

FEE: $300/night
