The Yurt Camp provides the only accommodation in the heart of Yellowstone in the winter and is located in a small meadow surrounded by conifer woodland.
Located less than one kilometre from the Grand Canyon and Falls of the Yellowstone River, this cosy and remarkably comfortable camp allows access to renowned places like upper Yellowstone River, which is an established corridor for wildlife as well as the Hayden Valley, Norris Geyser Basin and Gibbon Meadows. Siting at an elevation of 2425m (8,000 ft), the area is one of pristine beauty that takes on a quality of ethereal wonder in winter.
Guests enjoy the comforts of a fully outfitted, heated, base camp with private heated sleeping huts, and a communal area in the dining room Yurt. There are fully heated camp showers, a sauna and heated (and well lit) loos, that increase the level of comfort way above that of an ordinary ‘winter camping experience’.
Being the sole accommodation in the heart of Yellowstone during the winter, you shouldn't see any other people for over 50 kiometres!
