This was perfect for me! I was traveling solo both trips to Yellowstone and while I could have easily stayed in a hotel or campground, I wanted to experience nature and the camping experience. However, I really didn't want to try to set up a tent solo. This offered a great option for me.
I went to Yellowstone Under Canvas twice this season, once in Jun and again in Sep. They made a great impression. I was running late the first day, due to some snafus with my travel and called. Sarah and Jake graciously waited till I arrived late. When I arrived the second time, I was instantly recognized and welcomed back.
My first trip was in a tipi with a twin bed. Perfect, the blankets were warm, and Jake even brought a sleeping bag, not knowing if I'd need it (didn't, even though it got to mid-30's). I made some suggestions on a few things, and they took all the comments seriously.
Second trip, I stayed in a normal tipi. I'm not good with sleeping bags, but they were warm and once I figured out how to sleep in one, was quite comfortable, even into the 20's.
I am looking forward to going back next year and getting a safari tent with my husband. They seemed perfect for me. What could be better than waking up to a sunrise unrestricted by buildings and only hearing nature?
Yes you can camp for cheaper in the park or other places, but you'd have to set the tent, and deal with the myriad of things that come with 'roughing' it. This way, you just sit back and enjoy!
