Mahoney State Park, Louisville State Recreation Area, the Ak-Sar-Ben Aquarium and Schramm Park, the Strategic Air and Space Museum, Lee G. Simmons Conservation Park, Quarry Oaks Golf Club and Iron Horse Golf Club. Overnight Accommodations Camper Cabins: Sixteen cabins have heat/air conditioning. There are 31 of these cabins, grouped around central shower-latrine buildings, with four to six units in a pod. Each cabin has a refrigerator, fire grate for outdoor cooking and a picnic table, and linens are provided. With costs held down, the visitor can enjoy the park complex on a small budget. Rent a Tepee: You can rent an actual tepee in the Pawnee tepee village. Each tepee accommodates 6 to 8 people. Some concession has been made to modern comfort, though, with wooden floors replacing the packed earth of the traditional dwelling.
