Rish Park Facilities

Rish Park's many amenities make an overnight stay very enjoyable.  Eight cabins provide lodging for individuals, families, and large groups.  Some cabins are dormitories with kitchens; others are family cottages that sleep up to seven people.  Wide boardwalks connect the cabins with the beach, pool, and an event hall with a complete cooking facility.  Bring your own food and have a ball!

Only individuals with disabilities may rent cottages and dormitories or use the park facilities. Family members or guardians accompanying people with disabilities are welcome, as are state or private caregivers who transport and assist them. The park is open 12 months a year, and is especially popular in the summertime.

Advance registration is required for your overnight stay or extended visit. To reserve park facilities, contact APD's Sunland Center at (850) 482-9371 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Central time, Monday through Friday.  You will be asked to complete an application form, which is available here:
