#6 Elk Creek Cabin
Type: Modern Cabin
The Facility is ADA Compliant
Elk Creek Cabin is the sixth cabin as you enter the area. And this one-bedroom cabin has a great view of the lake from its porch. All cabins have concrete parking and patio areas with picnic tables and grills, as well as large campfire rings.
The cabins are outfitted nicely inside, too. Each has a refrigerator/freezer, four-burner electric stove/oven, microwave, toaster, coffee pot and all the utensils you'll need.
- Bathrooms are comfortable with a walk-in showers, vanities, mirrors and flush commodes.
- The master bedroom include full bed and sofa. The futon in the living areas fold down to full-size bed. The living area also includes pull-down twin Murphy beds.
All you need to bring is your bedding and towels, as well as food and beverages.
The state park is located on a bluff 80 feet above the water, but there are several places on the trail system that will get you close to the lake shore.
Two access points to the North Shore Hiking/Biking trails are nearby.
- Just east of the Wakarusa River cabin, you can access the trail system. There is an eagle blind in the wooded area near there, and you’ll have a great view of the Clinton Marina Cove. The marina offers slip and boat rental and can be contacted by calling 785/749-3222 or visiting clintonmarina.co. Anglers will find convenient access to the lake shore.
- Trails can also be reached by following the red handrail west of the shelter near the entrance of the cabin area, across from the shower house. Steps lead down to the hiking/biking trails. The White Trail is marked with paint on trees and leads to the easier Blue Trail, which takes hikers closer to the water. The Red Trail is more difficult; please use caution.
- At most entrances to the hiking/biking trails, there will be trail maps to help you keep track of where you are and what you might see in that area. A master copy of that map will also be in your Welcome Packet we’ll leave in the cabin for you. It’s really quiet and beautiful on the trails. Keep an eye out for wildlife and enjoy this awesome addition to the state park. Don't forget sunscreen and bug spray before heading out on the trails
A reminder if you stay with us: NO PETS are allowed in or around the cabins and NO SMOKING allowed inside the cabins!
