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 .

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

It was July 10th & my son's 6th birthday. We decided to drive from Cody, Wyoming to Yellowstone Under Canvas for our last night of a 5 day trip through Yellowstone National Park & Cody, Wyoming.

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

Yellowstone Under Canvas is a great place to stay on a budget when visiting Yellowstone and the surrounding area. It's just outside of West Yellowstone, which has plenty of shops, restaurants, and things to do. Under Canvas is a great place to camp and unplug from regular life, without having to bring any of your own camping gear!

I can't say enough on how much we enjoyed staying here! We loved the fact that it wasn't something smack dab in the middle of all the chaos that can be West Yellowstone. I will say people have to realize while this is run "like" a hotel, they are still out in the wilderness. This isn't a place you can... More
