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.

Under Canvas Yellowstone
Car wash not included!
We stayed for one night in the middle of our visit to Yellowstone National Park. Firstly, be aware that the map from showed that it was very close to the west entrance to the park. We eventually found the camp site entrance approx. 4 miles outside of West Yellowstone town. Then you will find a dusty track, you will need to follow this more than a mile before you come to the actual campsite. Be aware that your car will be filthy after entering this site! Check in is a bit haphazard, it seems like it is run by students. The tent itself was very large with a comfy double bed and other furniture inside. There is a wood burner, be prepared to use this as the temperature really drops during the night even though it was 35c during the day in late June. Overall it was an experience but if I was to visit the area again I would look earlier and book a proper hotel in West Yellowstone.

Yellowstone Under Canvas is perfect for experiencing the nature of camping in Yellowstone but with the ease of some home comforts and having all your equipment provided. Slightly more difficult if you don't have your own car!

Glamping as it should be
A lovely way to spend a couple of days at Yellowstone... 10 mins drive from the West entrance this was a quirky place to stay. The beds are epic... Amazing sheets... And when you're freezing your what-nots off in the morning, you really appreciate it. Having use of the lodge for a swim and spa with the Montana hills backdrop really added to the stay.

Truly a great experience ... accomodations amazing, staff so quick to attend to whatever question you might have, bathrooms were always clean and well maintained. The only issue was quiet hours for both pm/am hours wasn't upheld the last night we stayed making rest not great. I would've liked the staff to enforce the times directly with the individuals (campfire at pm / morning kids active and about @ 0600). Other than that, great experience and one my kids will talk about for a long time. It's pricey, so don't know we'll do it again as we did splurge during this last trip.
