Cabins for disabled visitors unveiled at Potrero County Park

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Two cabins that can accommodate disabled visitors were unveiled Monday at Potrero County Park.

The 390-square-foot cabins that sleep five were built to accommodate Americans with Disabilities Act standards and have wider doorways and a hard flat path leading from the parking area, according to the county.

The park will begin taking reservations for the cabins in May. The cabins, like the 132-acre East County site’s RV, tent and group camping spaces, will be available to any park guest, according to county officials.

The Potrero cabins are the fourth and fifth to be donated by Cabins by the Lake, which works to put at least one disabled-friendly cabin at each county park campground.

Parks Director Brian Albright said that by working with Cabins by the Lake, county parks officials could give “more visitors the opportunity to discover the beautiful outdoors and everything it has to offer.”

“There is a large demand for cabin camping experiences at county parks. To find cabins for those with disabilities is rare,” Albright said.

The two cabins were also outfitted with energy-efficient windows, insulation and water heaters, along with cement siding and a metal roof because the area is prone to wildfires, county officials said. Picnic areas, ball fields, playgrounds and hiking trails are located nearby.
