Luxury Camping Offered In West Yellowstone

Posted: Updated:

WETS YELLOWSTONE - For the second year, a camp site in West Yellowstone is offering guests a luxury camping experience.

"Instead of having to bring your own gear to a campsite," said Sasha Dingle, Under Canvas Guest Services Supervisor, "we have it all set up and take it down. Everything is here provided for you."

The camp site has a variety of options for guests including, safari tents, deluxe safari tents and teepees. The teepees come with camp cots, mattress padding, a small table and a lantern.

Dingle said Yellowstone was a perfect spot for these tents.

"The tents are a mixture of rusty and luxury, which is a good fit for this area," said Dingle. "You  have your day full of hiking and traveling then come back and relax and kick back."

The safari tents are equipped with your own king size bed, bathroom, dresser and wood burning stove.

"They are huge. They have roll top baths, sofas, king size beds"said Dingle.

Wendy MacCauley from South Jordan Utah stayed in one of the deluxe safari tents with her children. She said her experience went beyond her expectations.

"It is paradise. It's just beautiful, relaxing and clean," said MacCauley. "I don't camp, but you have a king size bed, wooden floors, your own bathroom in a little tepee."

Her favorite part about her experience is being able to hear all the animals at night.

No food is allowed on the camp site, every tent is equipped with bear spray to help protect the area from wildlife.

"We're completely fenced around and then we have the river on one side," said Dingle. "We hear coyotes at night. There are bears in the area in this region, but they never come to camp because we manage our food policy really strictly."

Dingle said the biggest challenge at the camp site is the unpredictable Montana weather.

"We have so many blankets to keep our guests warm. The tents hold a lot of heat that they actually get too hot when the sun is beating down on them," said Dingle.

Dingle said a guest will either love or hate it, there is no middle ground. She adds the staff does everything to make sure everyone feels right at home.

Last year the camp only has 25 tents. This year the camp doubled in size and now has about 50 tents on site.
