New, earth-friendly camping cabins will be dedicated this week at Ponca State Park in northeast Nebraska. Greg Wagner, spokesman for Nebraska Game & Parks, says the cabins use both new and old technology.
He says the four-bedroom cabins were made of recycled materials and will hold the heat well during the winter and the air conditioning during the summer. Wagner says the walls of the cabins are built with baled prairie hay, a technique dating back to Nebraska’s pioneer days, but it’s effective.
The cabins also use geothermal heating and cooling as well as natural light. Wagner says they’ll be ready for rental before summer’s out. Each unit has multiple bedrooms, modern kitchen and bath, living room and dining room.
