This is for sure an experience one should do at least once, especially for those who would love to try camping but without the effort, hence glamping (glamorous camping). Every staff were super friendly and helpful, upon arriving they’ll shuttle you and your luggage to your tent, give you a few rules, and make sure you’re familiar with your tent. They even gave us a round trip ride to and from their restaurant, we thought that was really cool (we didn’t have to walk or drive ourselves). Close to sunset they’ll set up camp fire with s’mores and there’s even corn hole to play. There were 6 of us so we had a luxury tent with a queen bed, 2 cots, fire stove, and a private bathroom plus an adjacent tipi with 2 single beds. There were outlets in every tent and the covers are super comfy and warm. During our stay past midnight there were heavy wind that sounded and felt like our tipi was gonna blow over, but it was very sturdy and it kept, it was scary but we all thought it added to our amazing experience. Breakfast was included on our stay but sadly we had to leave before it started ☹️. All in all this is the closest thing one gets from real camping without putting in work. Our group called it camping with champagne.
This place is amazing! We stayed here for only one night before we went into the park because we thought it would be better to be centrally located rather than drive in and out. The campground was so nice - the scenery, the many places to unwind, the starry skies, the cozy beds, the super clean bathrooms, the smores, the trails - that it made me think twice about our decision to stay in Yellowstone. What an introduction to camping (er glamping) for my two young kids. And the staff were so nice!!
I'm going to be looking to book other visits to national parks where there are Under Canvas' for future trips - can't think of a better recommendation than that!
