About Under Canvas Yellowstone

Riverside, near Yellowstone
The South Fork of the Madison River meanders through Yellowstone Under Canvas, a comfy tent camp just 6 miles (9.7 kilometers) from the West Entrance of Yellowstone National Park. If you love the great outdoors but would rather not rough it, this could be your perfect place.

Natural wonders
You'll be within an hour's drive of Yellowstone highlights like Old Faithful and the Obsidian Cliffs, and a 90-minute drive from the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. But be sure to take time to stop along the way to see wonderfully weird geothermal features like colorful paint pots and hissing fumaroles.

Sunsets and starry skies
There's plenty to do right here at the camp: fly-fishing, wildlife-viewing, stargazing, and the Sundowners "safari," where you can enjoy refreshments while watching the sunset from a secluded spot. For dinner, many guests praise the Bar N Ranch Restaurant, 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) away.

A glamping experience
This West Yellowstone campsite offers a variety of options for a true glamping experience. Deluxe Safari Tents and cabin-style Deluxe Suites include patios and private bathrooms, while tipis with shared baths are ideal if you're on a budget.
