The long-awaited handicap-accessible cabin at Harrington Beach State Park in the Town of Belgium opened Tuesday, July 28.

Earlier this month, representatives from Harrington Beach, the Department of Natural Resources, state and local officials dedicated the cabin, the 10th handicap-accessible cabin in the state, with a ceremony and open house.


The 1,083-square-foot cabin was funded mostly through private grants, foundations, memorials and donations. The Friends of Harrington Beach have raised $142,000 for the cabin, according to its website.


The cabin features an accessible bathroom with a roll-in shower, a kitchen with counters that can be used by people in wheelchairs and a screened porch.


Hoyer lifts are available and all rooms are large enough for wheelchairs to be maneuvered.


The cabin is similar to one at Kohler-Andrae State Park in Sheboygan and is the eighth one built in a Wisconsin state park. There are also two rustic cabins in the state.


To reserve the cabin, which is open to people with disabilities that prevent them from using the park’s regular camping sites, call the park at 285-3015 or visit dnr.wi.gov/topic/parks/camping/cabin.html.
