Recreational Cabins Take a look!
Our state of the art outdoor facility opened, featuring a beautiful community of recreational cabins, is an absolute hit with Soldiers and their families looking to get away and live the great outdoors fantasy.
Our cabins are nestled in a quiet corner of American Lake on JBLM-North. American Lake is a recreational dream with fishing, boating and swimming as major draws.
All 10 recreational cabins feature unobstructed views of the waterfront.
Fishing is available only steps away from your front door. Ducks, geese and mating pairs of bald eagles can often be seen enjoying this oasis along the I-5 corridor.
Choose your Cabin
We currently have four sizes of lakeside cabins available: one three-bedroom, two two-bedroom, six one-bedroom and four studios. One studio and one one-bedroom cabin are wheelchair-accessible. All cabins include standard kitchen appliances, dishes, TV, DVD, wireless Internet, bedding and private bath with towel service.
The largest cabin, the three-bedroom, sleeps 8 adults and features a gas fireplace and outside hot tub. The two-bedroom cabins sleep six adults. The one-bedroom cabins sleep four adults and feature a separate bedroom plus a hide-a-bed sleeper couch. The smaller studio cabins sleep two adults.
Check-in is at 3 p.m. Check-out is at 10 a.m.
No smoking. No pets allowed. Service animals are permitted.
All cabins come with full kitchenettes. This includes stove, oven, microwave range, pots and pans and table service for four. All cabins have basic cable and telephones with local number access. All have showers and full bathrooms as well. For those times when you need to take care of laundry, a commons area is located directly behind the cabins with coin operated washers, dryers and soap dispensers and more showering facilities.
Cabins are available year-round including all major holidays. They may be reserved up to three months in advance. A first night's deposit is required at the time of reservation.
Reservation deposits can be made with either Visa or Mastercard. The cabins are especially popular during holidays, weekends and all summer long, so plan on making your reservations as early as possible.
