The weather was cold and windy when we stayed in Sept. with temperatures down to 34.°F. We lit a fire in the firepit and together with the good quality sleeping bags (with liners) and decent air mattresses we slept well. The toilet/ shower block is well heated with clean, basic facilities.

We were out in Glacier National Park for our wedding and honeymoon and thought it would be neat to stay in a tipi. It was definitely an experience that we won't soon forget. We stayed for two nights. Darrell was very pleasant when we arrived. The first night was great. The second night was very very windy and it got... More

Darrell Norman is a Blackfeet Elder and is helping to preserve the traditional Blackfeet culture and language. He told us how to read Tipi symbols at his village. We toured the Blackfeet Reservation with him on a private tour. Well worth the time and money to get an in-depth look at the Blackfeet way of life.

We had a poor experience in renting a tipi when we discovered that when the canvas for our tipi ripped apart, the owners said that they would not offer a refund and wanted put us into another tipi instead. This is after I told him that my wife and daughter was upset about their experience so far. We discovered the... More

Mr. Norman and his wife were more than hospitable. Accommodations were 5 star from bathrooms to common areas and the grounds. Tipi's were in excellent condition. We were able to fellowship with other guests and break bread. The meal was supreme. Large portions. Humility and respect is what we saw a great deal of in the detail of everything around... More

We enjoyed our one night stay at the Lodgepole Gallery and Tipi Village. We were not sure whta to expect, but loved the fire inside the tipi at night. We had a great view of the night sky and loved listening to the wind at night on the plains. This was a nice change from tent camping we had experienced... More

I am a program coordinator and I bring 20+ people to the Lodgepole Gallery and Tipi Village to spend the night. They are very accommodating to my large group and it is a hit with the participants. They thoroughly enjoy the experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an adventure!

Room for RVs. Very large parking. There are vendors here. They make jewelry, canvas tipi and photographs. The artists vary. There is a lot to earn, if you ask.

Perfect, better than a tent, meals need to be more a cultural thing and not a typical American sitdown dinner. Maybe a outdoor event at the outdoor kitchen. More like a pow wow

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
