Yellowstone National Park is famous for all kinds of reasons: bubbling mudpots, sizzling steam vents, bursting geysers, loads of charismatic megafauna, and some epic glamping sites. 

With so much to see and do within its 3,472 square miles, Yellowstone is no one-day destination. You’ll want to stay at least a few nights to experience its highlights. Lodging options abound near every park entrance, from RV parks to motels, but nature-centric glamping resorts really get you into the spirit of the place. 

It doesn’t matter whether you visit Yellowstone in the winter or adventure north during the more popular summer months; it’s a must-visit destination for any traveler. Whether your perfect getaway involves a stylish bell tent, an adorable tiny house, or a Native American tipi, we’ve rounded up our favorite Yellowstone glamping escapes across Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming.

Editor’s note: This article was updated by Elisabeth Kwak-Hefferan on December 20, 2023 to include revised glamping picks and updated information after historical park flooding.

Bodhi Farms

With its primo location on a 35-acre, sustainable farm, it’s no wonder a stay at Bodhi revolves around food. The resort’s excellent Field Kitchen Restaurant offers über-fresh, seasonal meals served out of its open-air kitchen. Specialties might include Montana trout, mushroom risotto, or elk lion, along with desserts, regional spirits, and a hot breakfast for guests. Whiling away a summer evening at a creekside table is part of the magic.

When you’re not eating, indulge in an on-site sauna session, massage in a private spa tipi, or yoga class in the open-air yoga shala tent. There’s also a small pond for practicing fly-fishing or stand-up paddleboarding, and you can stroll the farm grounds and say hello to the resident chickens and pigs.

Bodhi’s nine generously sized Nordic tipis feature decks, hammocks, windows, cozy beds, space heaters, electricity, and a coffee bar. The two shared bathroom tipis have flush toilets and hot showers (there are also Portapotties located closer to the sleeping tipis). 

  • Location: On the southwestern outskirts of Bozeman

Chico Hot Springs Resort & Day Spa

Why you should stay: Come for the natural hot springs, stay for the fantastic dining and Old West charm of this Montana resort’s covered-wagon glampsites.

  • Location: Pray, Montana
  • Sleeps: Up to 4
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $225/night

Live your own chapter of Little House on the Prairie—just with soft beds, heat, and air conditioning—at Chico’s Camp Conestoga. The six canvas-topped covered wagons fit a king-size bed plus twin bunk beds and feature their own covered patios with views of the Paradise Valley. Guests also gather around gas-burning firepits when the evening chill sets in. One wagon has its own bathroom with a flush toilet, while the others share a communal bath house with hot showers.

Naturally, the hot springs pools at this century-old resort are the star attraction, and with good reason: Soaking in the swimming pool-sized warm pool or the smaller, hotter side pool is a must-do. Guests have unlimited access to the pools during open hours, so you can (and should) take the plunge multiple times over your stay. 

When you dry off, don’t miss a meal at the standout Dining Room, which serves the likes of prime rib, beef tenderloin, and roast chicken for dinner and offers a killer brunch buffet. The Chico Saloon offers more casual fare, as does the Poolside Grille. There’s also an on-site spa, horse barn, and disc golf course, among other amenities.

While the Conestoga wagons win the prize for most fun lodging, we’d be remiss not to mention that Chico has a slew of other sleeping options. If the wagons are booked up, you can also bunk in a cabin, caboose, motel room, or Victorian-era lodge room.

Why you should stay: This 19-century shepherd’s wagon is no-frills, affordable, and tons of fun.

  • Location: Belgrade, Montana
  • Sleeps: Up to 2
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $105/night

Charm? Yes. Luxury? No. This adorable, handcrafted sheepherder wagon harkens back to the days when traveling shepherds would nomadically move and sleep with their herds all summer long. Set on a farm just outside of Bozeman, a convenient stop between Glacier and Yellowstone, the solitude, farm animal vibes (and cuddles), and epic big-sky sunsets all combine to make this a memorable stay.

A small stoop and two chairs greet visitors just outside the wagon, while inside, you’ll find a quilted double bed and a small seating area. A small shower/bath house and a composting outhouse are shared between the property’s two wooden wagons. You won’t find fancy amenities, but you can help the host do daily farm chores if you like.
