Explore thousands of acres of public forest land and enjoy endless miles of some of the best recreational trails Wisconsin has to offer. Step out of the yurt, located in the middle of Bayfield County Forest land, and right onto CAMBA mountain bike trails and the North End ski trails (which connect to the American Birkebeiner ski trails). This is a rustic, minimally maintained yurt so come prepared to relax, unwind and enjoy/explore the wonders of the north woods.

The space
This yurt is nestled in the Bayfield County Forest and is only accessible by foot, snowshoe, ski, or bike. Our yurts are 20 feet in diameter and insulated for year round use, complete with woodstove. Fire wood is provided only for heating with the woodstove. The yurt comes equipped with 2 bunk beds; a full mattress on the bottom and a twin mattress on top and sleeps up to 6 people. No linens or pillows are provided, so be sure to pack your sleeping bag. A picnic table is also located inside the yurt.

Outside the yurt we have a bear proof box to store all your food, along with a deck, picnic table, fire ring, and outhouse. This is bear country and the yurts are made out of fabric. Please use the box to store all food and never leave food inside the yurt.

A rundown of the basics:

Bathrooms: the yurt does not have indoor plumbing, nor access to water, but is located near a pit toilet/outhouse, which is available year-round.

Capacity: Can sleep up to 6 people. Additional overnight guests are not allowed.

Accessibility: Only accessible by foot, snowshoe, ski, or bike. No motorized vehicles, of any kind, are allowed.

Cooking: All yurts have a picnic table and fire ring with grill grate for outdoor cooking, and a bear proof locker for secure outdoor food storage. No candles, or other open flames are allowed inside the yurt. Cooking is permitted in the yurt only during the winter (on top of the metal hot plate). Extra caution must be used when cooking inside the yurt.

Electricity: no access to power.

Water: no running water or direct/immediate access to water. Prepare accordingly. Closest water source would be the city of Cable.

Heat: Yurts have a wood stove for heat. Split firewood is provided for use in the woodstove only. Matches, lighters or other ignition sources are not provided, so please plan accordingly.

Firewood: Wood will be provided for the wood stove which heats the yurt. Dead and down wood can be collected from the surrounding forest for use in the fire ring. A bow saw and axe are also provided.

Pets: no pets allowed within the yurt or on the premises. No exceptions.

Smoking: no smoking within the yurt. If you do smoke outside, please discard butts in the fire ring.

Guest access
Parking will be at the North End Cabin/trail head, off Randysek Rd, approximately 2 miles south of the town of Cable (fire number is 41640 Randysek Rd.)

The yurt is located approximately 1/3 of a mile east from the parking area (actual distance may vary depending upon your mode of access). There is some topography between the parking lot and the yurt site, so please plan accordingly. Please follow the signs to the yurt.

There is no motorized access to the yurt, so there will be no immediate access to your vehicle. Please plan accordingly.

During the non-snow season, you can hike or bike to the yurt. The yurt provides direct access to hundreds of miles of hiking and CAMBA mountain bike trails.

During the snow covered season, access to the yurt will be via snowshoes or cross country skis only. Please, in the winter, no hiking to the yurt without the aid of snowshoes or skis, as it may damage or destroy the groomed trails.

The path/trail to the yurt will be designated with signs, according to the method of access you choose. Please follow the designated path to the yurt.

The yurt provides direct access to miles of groomed skate and classic cross country ski trails, as well as designated snowshoe trails. Access to all of these trails is included as part of your stay. Please bring your confirmation email, as that will serve as your trail pass.

There may be winter fat biking opportunities. Please inquire if looking to access the yurt with fat bikes.

Trail maps and other local attractions will be located in the yurt. You can also pick up maps at the local Chambers or by calling our office.

Be prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws at you. In the summer, that's heat, rain, bugs, etc. Even the occasional really cold summer night. In the winter, that's heavy snow, wind and extreme cold (fortunately no bugs). Please review the weather reports before you come and plan/pack accordingly.

Other things to note
Leave No Trace camping principles are strictly implied. You must pack out what you pack in.

This is bear country. All cooking must be done outside whenever possible and all food must be stored outside in the bear proof metal box.

It's also the north woods and the yurt is located right in the middle of the forest. Mice might also find the yurt nice and cozy. If you find a mouse in the yurt, please send it packing. Also, please let us know. The yurt is pretty tight, but, inevitably, mice will get in. The sooner we know about it, the sooner we can address it.

Cell phone coverage is unreliable at the yurt site. Please plan accordingly.
