What to bring

The layout is 7 sleeping cabins, a bathhouse and a main lodge with kitchen facilities. Restroom and shower facilities are only in the bathhouse and exterior lights on buildings are extremely limited.  You will need appropriate outdoor winter gear to travel between these safely day or night so we have this list for what you should consider packing.  

Required List: (if you don’t pack these you will be very uncomfortable during weekend)

  • Sleeping bag or full bed linens (sheets + comforter + extra blankets)
  • Pillow(s)
  • Toilet paper (not provided by park)
  • Toiletries (and small bag to carry them)
  • Towel(s)
  • 3 days of layered clothing (both outdoor and indoor)
  • Insulated boots or shoes
  • Indoor slippers or sandals (Outside shoes must be left at entryway to buildings)

Suggested: (experience has show these are REALLY good to have)

  • Heavy outdoor gear (gloves, hat, masks)
  • Sunglasses or goggles
  • Flashlight
  • Camera
  • Heavy bathrobe or pajamas (For when you need to leave your cabin late at night)
  • Tension rod with curtain (For privacy. There are no doors in the cabins)
  • Skis, snowshoes, or walking sticks (The trails are amazing!)
  • Games (video, board, or card)
  • Movies (after sunset)
  • Art supplies
  • Powerstrip / USB charging station (Cabins have limited outlets)

If you are unsure if there is “room” or “need” for everything you intend to pack, feel free to take a look at the last 3 slides of the virtual tour of Whitewater State Park to get a feel for where you will be staying.
