6 miles from Yellowstone

Scenically set along the South Fork of the Madison River, just 6 miles (9.7 kilometers) from Yellowstone National Park's West Entrance, Yellowstone Under Canvas is a luxury campsite where guests can enjoy the great outdoors without giving up the comforts of home.

Sunset safaris

There's plenty to do right here at the camp: fly-fishing, stargazing, wildlife-watching, and the unique Sundowners "safari" to see the sunset from a secluded spot. Many guests enjoy dining at The Bar N Ranch Restaurant, 1.5 miles away.

Glamping experience

Putting the "glam" in camping, Yellowstone Under Canvas offers a variety of tents, from comfortable tipis with well-appointed shared baths to the new, cabin-style Deluxe Suites with woodstoves, patios, private baths, and spectacular views.

Renovations & Closures

The property is closed in May.
