The cabin horseshoe pit is almost as ubiquitous as the cabin fire pit. It seems like you can’t throw a stone in cabin country without it skipping across a dusty patch of earth framed by two metal posts. But as fun as a game of horseshoes (or badminton or croquet for that matter) can be, you can only play for so long before you crave something new.
