Roughing it in the wilderness may sound like a cool thing to do, but when it comes to families with little ones or partners who love the comforts of a posh hotel, the milder version, “glamping” as it has come to be known as, may be the way to go. It is a fancier way to tap into your outdoorsy self. You can fall asleep under the stars, but at the same time use a toilet with indoor facilities like heating and flushing. It’s a place where canned beans are replaced by gourmet picnic lunches and evenings are spent nibbling on hors d’oeuvres and sipping wine.
And all of this, within ten minutes from Yellowstone National Park. If you want to stay inside the park, you can rent a Tipi, furnished with camp cots, sleeping bags, pillows, towels and a lantern. For more information visit Yellowstone Under Canvas.
