YUC is amazing. It is set out by Buttermilk Creek away from the main town, but only about a 10 minute drive away, and there are many restaurants to go to in town. My 3 friends and I stayed in a tipi. There were four cots which were extremely comfortable with great sleeping bags and pillows. The tipi also came... More

This was the best part of our trip. Warm friendly staff, clean beautiful facilities, and awesome views. This place is great and everyone should experience it. It gives those who want to camp in the outdoors but don't want to give up some of the amenities that are offered by a hotel. Definite must for those traveling to West Yellowstone.

I love the concept. I DID sabotage my husband a bit, as he is a city boy and does NOT camp especially without ESPN. Ah well. . . the bear spray in the tent was nearly enough to have him pack up and turn around. But he made it through 2 nights, with freezing temperatures. We moved in with high... More

I truly love the concept - under canvas! The standard is in top - both tents and barthrooms (we stayed both in safari and tipi), the location is beautiful and the camp fire offers great company. I enjoyed every moment there!

We stayed July 19th and 20th of 2014. It's an experience you have to try once. The staff was great and the bed was comfortable. We got the deluxe tent. The kids had a great time . The first night was quiet but the second night we were up until 3 a.m....due to a group partying. The rules say not... More

Thank you for taking the time to rate and review us... First I would like to apologize on behalf of the tent that was making to much noise. We have a quiet time of 11pm and I will follow up with the YUC team to ensure that we are doing our rounds and and making the camp enjoyable for all.... More

We stayed here for 6 nights! We had 3 safari tents with wood stoves and 2 cots in each tent. There were 9 of us total ranging from 7 years old to 75 years old. There was plenty of room for us and our gear for our month of travels! We were warm enough in the beds when the temperature... More

Overall a neat experience. We didn't do any activities, just spent the night. The check-in staff was friendly. Although they have some nice setups with real beds (an actual bedroom in a tent), we went with the less expensive option and slept on cots since we were staying just one night. The temperature that night was in the 50's, but... More

The landscape was gorgeous, the beds were incredibly comfy and warm, fun shallow river for the kids (6yr/9yr) to play in and very friendly and helpful staff. Wish the fire pit area was larger so more people could enjoy it and gather around. My husband wanted a t-shirt from there but they don't sell them...bummer. It was our best nights... More
