Pinckney State Recreation Area Yurt

Pinckney State Recreation Area has joined with many other parks around the world in building a rental yurt.

Many people are unfamiliar with yurts, but they are growing more common as backcountry and semi-backcountry rental units.  The yurt is a round structure, with a raised, wooden floor and fabric walls and roof – sort of a half-cabin/half-tent.

Located on the channel between Half Moon and Highland Lakes, along the “Shortcut” trail, the yurt is available for rental.  It is accessible both by foot and by boat.  Parking is also available nearby, so only a short walk is strictly necessary to get to the yurt, or make it an overnight stop on your hike or canoe/kayak trip through the chain of lakes.
