Accommodation Description

· Jacuzzi/Hot Tub

The two glamping tipis at this luxury camping site can accommodate up to three people. They are set up upon raised wooden floors with single beds, or a king-size bed if glampers would prefer. All beds are fitted with bed linens, Lakota quilts, and mosquito netting. There are outdoor shower and toilet facilities for glampers to use, and bathrobes are provided for each traveler for the duration of their stay.

Guests in the tipis have use of the common room, the hot tub, and the patio at the main house. There is a full breakfast, complete with freshly ground and brewed Costa Rican coffee, pancakes, and other tasty morning treats, served at this glamping site, too.

What’s so unique about one of these tipis is that it was painted by Sidney Has No Horse, a painter and sculptor, in memoriam of his father, Dawson Has No Horse, Sr., who was a well-known and respected medicine man in the community. For this reason, this tipi faces east to open to the sunrise each day. Read More

Location + Surroundings

Batesland is a town in southwestern South Dakota with a rich Native American history. Given its proximity to the Badlands National Park and the Sandhills of Nebraska, this town is filled with opportunities for outdoor activities and excursions. Batesland is roughly two hours from the second largest city in the state, Rapid City, and just over two hours and 40 minutes from Pierre, the state's capital, for glampers who'd like to make a day trip to a big city. Go on a Lewis and Clarke Circle Tour or visit the ChrisaMari Vineyards in Pierre, and visit Mount Rushmore National Memorial from Rapid City. Read More
