My first time sleeping in a tent was a huge success thanks to Yellowstone Under Canvas. I rented a tipi which contained 3 cots on the canvas floor, 2 chairs and a small table. The sleeping bags and blankets were excellent. It was very cold at night, but wearing several layers and zipping up snugly kept me warm. I slept... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed your time with us... It is a pleasure to hear that you had a great time in our TiPi.. these personally are my favorite due to the price and the experience that you still get to "rough it" a bit but have all the comforts that do not usually come with Camping.

My family has been using a pop-up camper the past few years, but did not want to pull it considering the distance we had to travel. We also don't have room in our current vehicle to pack for tent camping. Being accustomed to camping in a tent & pop-up, we thought this experience would be a step up. It was... More

My family and I loved YUC. The tent was clean and the bed was wonderfully warm and comfortable. The kids enjoyed being in their own tip. The property is in a beautiful meadow. Dinner at the Bar N Ranch next door was the best food we had in during our two week vacation. Would definitely stay there again!

Although we are not affiliated with the Bar N they are our neighbors and do a fantastic job for our guests and theirs. I will certainly pass this along to them. We look forward to another trip...

My wife and I had a fantastic time at Yellowstone Under Canvas, the staff was professional and responsive, the setting could not be better. The views from our clean comfortable tent take your breath away and the close proximity to the park can't be beat. We dined at the Bar N and had a fantastic meal. There is no better... More

My family (2 adults, 2 children) stayed at Yellowstone Under Canvas for one night in June 2014. It was a fun experience for one night but it would not be my choice to stay multiple nights here. The day we stayed it rained/snowed all day and we had a lot of trouble getting the wood stove to light. They finally... More

Ok, so we spend three nights at YUC during our visit to Yellowstone. Pros It is a breautiful setting. In a large flat valley surrounded by small mountains (currently still snow capped). A beautiful stream passing right by the site. We spotted a huge beaver in the stream. The Bar N Ranch restaurant is in walking distance and is great... More

Unfortunately, there were many disappointments during our stay here. Firstly, on arrival a golf cart should take you and your bags through the field to your tent. However, if you check in at the same time as another guest, what results is the staff dragging your bags through the dirt to the tent. Secondly, in your tent is a fire... More

This is camping done right- luxury in the wild! We spent a couple of nights here in mid June and loved it!! The camp is set a few miles away from west glacier town but close enough for easy access. We arrived in the evening to see beautiful white tents dotted along the river, surrounded by snow capped mountains and... More

I showed up to YUC super excited, based on the glamorous photos online. This place was pretty much a dump. You drive by deal pirates trailers onto a large, muddy field, and end up at tents that are crammed together. The customer service is a joke. They sent us to a tent with garbage and mud inside. Woops- it wasn't... More

If you need a private bathroom, air conditioning and heating, this is not for you. Quit reading. If you don't need all these amenities, this place is for you. Six miles from the west gate of Yellowstone, this is a little jewel. Remember, this is a high altitude and it gets cold at night even in the spring and summer.... More
