          Depends on the type of cabin you are renting. We had the basic camping cabin. One room. We brought our own linens. The bathrooms were a hike from where we stayed, so we drove for showers.

          They seemed to be close to the same size. It really is like a grass parking lot. Not much room at all. If your looking for privacy, camp elsewhere.
