YELLOWSTONE UNDER CANVAS, WYOMING

Just 10 minutes from Yellowstone National Park is Yellowstone Under Canvas, an exclusive tented camp with mountain views set alongside a river. Owners Jake and Sarah Dusek loved the African safari experience and wanted to incorporate the concept with Montana's spectacular landscape and wildlife. Deluxe Suites are on a raised wood floor and offer private en suite bathrooms with flush toilets and roll top baths, a lounge area and have spectacular views over Arches National Park. The Deluxe Safari tents have a private bathroom tipi next door and patio with lounge chairs. Guests on a budget or who prefer roughing it can enjoy the Tipi Tents that come equipped with camp cots and mattress, sleeping bags, safari chairs and all you’ll need to enjoy camping under the stars. The Bar N Ranch offers full bar and fine dining for breakfast and dinner, lunches are charming picnic baskets with sandwiches and treats. After a full day of horseback riding, kayaking, zip lining or touring Yellowstone, guests return to the camp for traditional African sundowners as they would have in the bush, here in Big Sky country.
