Mongolian Yurts in the Mountains of Massachusetts

Yurts at October Mountain
Yurts at October Mountain

Yurts are lightweight, portable and ideal for family camping. These have triple the headroom of a pup tent, sleep up to six people and even carry electricity.

It’s no wonder the yurts at October Mountain Campground in Lee, Massachusetts rent out so quickly. These are also wheelchair accessible but, sorry, no dogs allowed.

Due to construction, nearby Bear Mountain State Park in Great Barrington is closed for camping this season so all 47 sites at October Mountain State Park are sure to be busy.

After exploring another 10 miles of this beautiful State Park, I was tempted to crawl into one of the three yurts for a much needed snooze. At $30/night the price is extremely reasonable.
