For a unique camping experience near Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve in Arco, Idaho, this yurt accommodation is just the place. The rental includes two yurts—one which acts as the sleeping accommodation and the other which is for kitchen and dining purposes. Up to eight guests can be accommodated, and in the sleeping yurt, there are four single beds, shelves, and a book library. Guests should bring sleeping bags along for added warmth.

In the kitchen yurt, glampers will find basic kitchen features, including a prep station and a propane stove, in addition to a workspace area and a dining table with chairs. There is no power nor plumbing in the yurts, and the bathroom facilities are separate. Please note that the toilet in the bathroom requires that guests pour water down it in order to "flush." Guests will get water from the hand-pumped well on-site, and there is a generator in the shed on the property, in case power is needed.

It is recommended that guests plan their meals in advance, i.e., buy groceries before arriving at the site, as the town of Arco does not offer many restaurants.
