While shipping container homes have been of use for about a decade, Kings County Parks is currently taking reservations for their new bunk made from a cargo container.

At 24 feet long, it includes all the amenities one would find in a small cabin with a green twist: full sized bunk beds, kitchen cabinets that can be moved outside for use, a wall made of recycled soccer goals, and a table made from an old door.

The camper is currently situated along the Snoqualmie River at Tolt-MacDonald Park, in Carnation.

For $50 a night, you can’t beat staying green and having fun!
