Two of Arizona's most popular state parks recently added facilities that allow visitors to enjoy a comfortable overnight stay.

As Arizona State Parks and Trails announced recently, Lost Dutchman and Patagonia Lake state parks now feature camping cabins large enough to accommodate six people. At Lost Dutchman State Park, east of the Phoenix area, the cabins are at the base of the Superstition Mountains. At Patagonia Lake State Park, in Southern Arizona, they're near the water.

Each cabin includes a fire ring, a picnic table and a ramada outside. All the cabins are wheelchair accessible and have easy access to nearby parking areas and restroom facilities. They feature solar cooling and heating systems, meaning they're comfortable any time of year, the department says.

Arizona State Parks and Trails is offering special introductory rates on the cabins through October 31, the department said in a news release. You can make reservations up to a year in advance. Several other state parks already offer the cabins.

For more information, visit the Arizona State Parks and Trails website. And don't forget that when you buy an annual pass, you get a free one-year subscription to Arizona Highways.
