The North Park Yurt aka NPYs (Black Bear Yurt, Aspen Yurt, and Sunset Yurt) are all located on private property beside the entrance of the State Forest State Park. These drive-up gems are spread about 200 yards apart and 150 feet away from each other. They are the same size as our bigger yurts (24 ft.) All of the yurts here have drive up access and allow dogs during the winter season. Solar lights and fully stocked cooking area is what you will find in these front country yurts.
