Reservations Available for Big Hollow Cabin

West Burlington, IA – The first rental cabin at Big Hollow Recreation Area is now available for reservations. The cabin will be available for use from April 1st through October 31st. The rate is $25 per night with a two night minimum.

The primitive cabin lacks electricity and plumbing but for those looking for a “Little House on the Prairie” experience, the cabin is well suited. It features an open living room and dining room area and two bedrooms -- one with a queen bed and one with two double beds. Outside the cabin are a portable restroom, campfire ring, upright charcoal grill, picnic table, and sitting benches. A serving station with a concrete counter top, sink and cistern pump connected to a rain barrel is located on the porch area for outside cooking and non-potable water needs.

The cabin is located at the east end of the park.

Des Moines County Conservation will host a grand opening event on Saturday, March 29th from noon until 4:00pm to showcase the new facility. Reservations will be taken on site with payment for available dates in 2014.

To find out more about the cabin or to make an advance reservation, visit the Facilities page at or call the Conservation Department’s main office at (319) 753-8260.
