Our stay was part of a bachelor party that involved hiking in Glacier National park (very close). The tepee was cool.. fire pit in the middle was a nice touch of authenticity, really made us feel like we were part of the distant past. DEFINITELY GET THE MATS. Only thing i didnt love was the food served.. we got the... More

I loved the opportunity to stay in a tipi run by a member of the Blackfeet tribe. The owners (a member of the tribe and his German wife) were welcoming and kind enough to lend me a lighter to start my fire. The common area was cozy, and I appreciated the tea, wifi and friendly kitty after a windy night... More

Overcharged $155/night for squirrel poop covered undulating dead grassy ground. Charged extra for mats. We had 5 children in our party of two families and one 2 yr old. We asked for it to be cleaned and the extremely rude foreign (not Native American by a long shot) owner said we can take another Tepee. They are all on uneven... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Lodgepole Tipi Village last summer as part of our Yellowstone/Glacier National Park summer adventure. What an incredible and memorable part of our journey. To this day, our 7 year old daughter still talks about our night in a tipi...and the food! After many days of restaurant food, it was a pleasure to have... More

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!

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
