CORTLAND, OH – A ribbon cutting and dedication of the two “Yurt” getaway rentals at Mosquito Lake State Park campground will take place on Friday, September 3 at 4 p.m., according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).
The traditional Yurt design features a round frame constructed of wooden lattice, covered by canvas. The Mosquito Lake Yurts sleep four, and are furnished with futon bunk beds, refrigerator, microwave oven, grill and picnic table. Each yurt is located on a scenic lakeside site, with a wrap-around deck that features a wheelchair accessible ramp.
The yurts were assembled by Mosquito Lake park staff with assistance from the staff of Pymatuning State Park. The rental fee is $45 per night, and more than 200 nights have been rented or reserved since the yurts became available for rental on May 1.
