Visitors looking to spend more than a day in Jackson County now have another lodging option besides bedding down for the night in one of the 695 hotel rooms located in the Seymour area or bringing their own camper or tent.

“We anticipate a lot of use from these cabins this coming year and beyond,” said Brad Schneck, who is property manager at Starve Hollow State Recreation Area.

Schneck was referring to 13 cabins that are being installed in the campground area at the recreation area, about three miles south of Vallonia.

The campground also features 155 campsites, ranging from 55 with full hookups to 90 with just electricity. That doesn’t include the 54 nonprimitive sites at nearby Jackson-

Washington State Forest.

Jane Hays, public relations manager with the Jackson County Visitor Center in Seymour, said the cabins add to the mix of overnight accommodations in the county that also include the Wild Gourd Bed & Breakfast at Norman and hotel rooms in Seymour.
