If you want to experience the joys of camping without the hassle of pitching a tent then check out the rustic accessible cabin nestled in the redwoods at Hendy Woods. Of the four cabins located in Wildcat campground, only Puma (#1) is accessible. The cabin was renovated in May 2018 to improve access. It is well constructed and the knotty pine walls make it feel as if you are still outdoors. It is minimally outfitted with a double-size bunk bed (the ladder to the upper bunk limits transfer clearance to the lower bunk however it can be repositioned by loosening some bolts), a table with a bench, a woodstove and lowered clothes hooks. Outside the cabin there is a spacious deck, a picnic table, and a raised fire-pit with a swing-away grill. There is space to pitch a small tent. A small visitor center with very limited hours is directly across from the cabin and a little further down the road is an accessible campfire center. The community bathroom/showers are nearby.
