Zandalee Cloete: "Although glamping is often thought of as "glamorous camping" I will warn you that there is not much "glamorous" about staying in an authentic tipi. However, I loved it! It definitely was a once in a lifetime experience and a very unique stay. It was really awesome to see the stars while laying down in your tipi and to stay in such a quiet surrounding. I really enjoyed the stay and it wasn't far from town or the park if you're looking to explore. Overall, very cool experience, lovely people, awesome site, close to the park!"
Michael Foley: "Rene, the owner was very nice. The experience was unique and the surroundings were idyllic. We walked a little of the property and caught/released 3 trout. Was uniquely surprised by the wildlife. The gurgling stream outside our tent was soothing. The deer were everywhere in the morning and late afternoon. The food was top notch - and Rene knows his wine - all very affordable. A nice glamping experience."
Jennifer Dunkel: "I cannot say enough EXCELLENT things about this trip we had here! We stayed one night as part of our road trip up to Yellowstone, and even though we were on the road for 9 days, this one night at the Tipi Camp ended up being my family's favorite night. My husband said it was the best night's sleep he's had in a long time. The sounds of the river and the extremely comfortable mattress lulled him to sleep immediately. My kids loved sleeping on the futon and loved experiencing a new kind of camping trip. For me, having the propane heater keep us warm throughout the chilly May night (I think it got down to the upper-40s overnight) was just what I needed to stay comfortable. I also was appreciative of the very clean full-restrooms and showers by the check-in area (which is a long-road, quick drive from the Tipi-lodging, but easy enough). There are port-a-potties by the Tipis themselves. After we checked in, we made a quick trip to Cody (about 10 minutes away) for dinner groceries and quick supplies. We were able to grill steak and do foil-wrapped potatoes on the camp grill for dinner (yum!!). There was also a community campfire available for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs or just for staying warm and star-gazing. There are so many highlights: clean, comfortable, warm Tipis; friendly, wonderful hosts/staff (seriously: from check-in to check-out, this place has its procedures down! My kids LOVED their 4-wheeler ride down to the Tipis with the guide who got us all settled in - he was so grandfatherly to them, and my kids felt extra special); and a GORGEOUS view of the river, bluffs, and Wyoming sky. This was an AWESOME alternative to actual camping, which we were not equipped to do. Glamping at its best!! It's not a hotel, but I would hope people would know that if they are thinking about staying here. If you want something a little different - but still very comfortable! - this is a great option. Quick Tips: take a headlamp (it's nice to have your hands free if you need to use the port-a-potties at night); take your own lantern/bright flashlight (they do provide some in the tipis, but I love having extra light as a personal preference and found that my own two LED lanterns I packed served this purpose well); and take some basic camping supplies. Even though camping was not our goal on this road trip, I did pack a tiny camp-pot for boiling water, some coffee packets, some oatmeal packets, and aluminum foil. These items don't take much space, and having coffee and oatmeal in the morning really is a lifesaver. This single night of our 9-day road trip was the highlight that my family will remember forever: the night we stayed in a Tipi by the river under the stars!"
