The Department of Environmental Management (DEM) is currently building 12 cabins, including six at Burlingame State Park, Charlestown, and six at the George Washington Management area in Glocester, a report said.

These will be part of the inventory of 20 cabins, all at Burlingame and ranging in age from a decade to over 25 years.

The new cabins are constructed on concrete foundations, which will increase their lifespan. A few of the old cabins that were built on wooden timbers that rest upon the soil are showing signs of decay, according to Kyle Cahoon, regional park manager of DEM.

The new cabins will be constructed through Red Oak Remodeling, based in Coventry. The construction project will cost the state $509,720. The money comes from the capital project fund that is funded by the general revenue of the state. This fund can be utilized for repair, renovations, and the construction of state-owned facilities.

DEM spokesperson Michael Healey described the new cabins as “primitive.”

The accommodations are simple, with four walls, a roof, a floor, a door, and bunk beds that can accommodate four people.

There is no running water, electricity, heating, and cooking equipment. The beds don’t come with mattresses, but campers are free to bring the cushioning they want.

The cabins each have a porch.

Campers are permitted to put up a tent beside the cabins. The maximum occupancy for the site is six persons, and pets are allowed.

Some cabins will be ADA compliant for accessibility.

One-night rentals cost $50 per night for Rhode Island residents and $75 for non-residents.
