If you’re looking for a unique and comfortable space for your Flint Hills experience, this historic stone cabin is for you.

Later that night, you and your guests can roast marshmallows at the adjoining fire pit. Sleeps 6. $100/night

Stone 2

Modeled after one of Camp Wood’s historic buildings, this new two bedroom, one bath stone cabin was built to comfortably accommodate groups of up to 6 people. It features a full kitchen, which is open to a large living area for group gatherings and meals. In contrast to Stone 1, this cabin has two separate bedrooms, each with a queen bed. The living area also offers a sofa sleeper.
