Yellowstone Under Canvas
West Yellowstone, Montana
Why Stay At Yellowstone Under Canvas
Canvas teepees and safari-like tents with Big Sky views cluster around a bend in the Madison River, near Yellowstone National Park and the town of West Yellowstone.
Not quite camping and not quite a hotel, "glamping" has made its way to the Yellowstone National Park area with this new spread just six miles from the entrance, near the town of West Yellowstone, Montana. Opened in 2012, Yellowstone Under Canvas is set on a dramatic 6,500-foot bluff overlooking the Rocky Mountains. Twelve teepees are outfitted with cots and cozy sleeping bags, while 23 deluxe safari tents collectively resemble a classic African bush camp, with wood-slat king beds, director's chairs, and mahogany dressers. The Madison River runs through the grounds, so guests can fly-fish or kayak on the south fork, in full view of moose, golden eagles, and coyotes.
End the day with a bonfire in the meadow, where travelers gather for BYO beverages and campfire conversation.
Rent a kayak on-site ($40 for a half-day). Follow the current down the Madison River to scenic Hebgen Lake, where a shuttle will pick you up for the return to camp.
Arrive at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BOZ) which is about 98 miles from the camp. Anticipate about 2 hours of travel time.3111 Targhee Hwy, West Yellowstone, Montana, United States
