It was cold, windy and very rainy when we spent a night at the Lodgepole Tipi Village in mid Sept. 2015. Nonetheless, we dressed warmly and were snug in the sleeping bags provided with sheets and pillows on the mats in our tipi. Firewood and a lighter were also provided to make a fire in the central pit which was... More

We are from the east coast, so staying on the plains with an amazing view of Glacier National Park was truly special. We brought our own sleeping bags and pillows. I recommend renting their mats, they are really comfortable and I am picky about this stuff. The people around us were very quiet so it was like a camping experience... More

The owner was not Native American, but setting was very authentic located inside the Indian Reservation, which was great. Overall, though, we didn't anticipate it to be so cold! We did not have experience setting up a fire inside the tipi, which we were supposed to use to keep ourselves warm. I also think the food was a bit overpriced.... More

This place is great if you want to sleep with rodents and their feces! Infested with prairie dogs the ground under the tipis was like Swiss cheese with access for these animals to go inside! READ FINE PRINT FOR THE 7 DAY PRIOR CANCELLATION POLICY!!! When you find out their secret and want to leave they will not refund your... More

We stayed with friends at the tipi village because we wanted a unique and non-comercial experience, and I must say we were very pleased with this choice. The tipis here were authentic, except in the fact they were canvas instead of buffalo hide. Darrell, the owner has constructed many tipis and is a member of the Blackfeet tribe & was... More

This is a tough review because of the pros and cons. We loved the experience of sleeping in the tipi. We were there in late June and it got down to 40 at night. Definitely cold! The sleeping bags were on a tarp and a camping mattress, so comfortable as far as sleeping on the ground goes. Community bath house... More

My family just stayed at the wonderful authentic tipi village just west of Browning MT. I live only 30 miles from the village. To the bad reviewers- YOU ARE STAYING IN A TIPI, what did you expect? Yes is it on the ground, yes there are natural things on the ground, like bugs, gophers (along with their holes), etc. but... More

Great, authentic tipi camping experience. If you like camping and are in Glacier National Park area it is a must-stay experience. Reasonable rates, friendly service and good food (although the quantities could have been a little more substantial for hungry travelers). While there may be some complaints on TripAdvisor regarding the "primitive nature" of the accommodations, one must remember -... More

Wanted to sleep in a Tipi. The experience was nice, but the potholed gravelly incline getting up to the main area was a challenge on a motorcycle. Owners were very friendly and there is no luxury involved in the experience other than they do have an inside restroom shower area. You get a sleeping pad, sleeping bag with a freshly... More

I agree with some of the reviews here which mention that staying in the tipi is overpriced for what you get. But, like me, they all knew ahead of time what it was going to cost and they chose to pay anyway. You didn't actually expect there to be bathrooms in the tipi's, did you? I paid $99 for two... More
