Canvas Tent Oasis
Posted Aug 25, 2016
I'm not saying that this is a 5 Star top of the line, no flaws, tent camping experience. I have roughed back country camping in Yosemite and Zion National Park, so camping with Yellowstone Under Canvas was very luxurious in comparison. My friends and I had the 4 bed tent. I originally thought that we would have 4 cots, but was pleasantly surprised when we had 4 twin beds with soft cushions and 3 layers of blankets. Our tent was closer to the community tent, so we did have to hear other campers, but that is part of the experience. We also used the facilities closest to the community tent. Dont' expect a hotel-ish facility, but to have warm water and an actual shower vs. squating near a tree, I'd have to say that the facilities were great. The facilities were clean and there were always clean towels everyday. I really appreciated the free hot water, coffee, and tea that was provided 24/7. The website says that they do not allow food near the tents (understandably), but they do allow food in the community tent, which was great! My friends and I were able to cook our meals at the community tent. There is also a river behind the tents that is great place to swim. There were fire pits and a volleyball court. There is a horse ranch next door, so you can admire the horses. My friends and I had an amazing experience and I plan on returning. This place is also located near the West entrance so we were able to get to the park in a short time.
