Oski Year-Round Cabins

The Lair has fifteen cabins for year-round use at Camp Oski. Each cabin sleeps up to six guests with a queen bed, bunk bed, and two single beds in the loft, and has its own private bathroom, heat, mini-fridge, and more. Join us during one of our Winter at the Lair weekends and enjoy a cozy stay!

Family Camp

With a backyard of incomparable beauty and stellar staff-led programming for campers of all ages, the Lair of the Golden Bear is the perfect place to make family memories. By the time departure day arrives, you will have fallen in love with our special corner of the Sierra Nevada—and you’ll be counting down the days until you return next summer.
