Yellowstone is famous for being the first national park in the world. It’s home to bubbling mudpots, sizzling steam vents, bursting geysers, and loads of charismatic megafauna.

With so much to see and do within its 3,472 square mile expanse, there are tons of access points to get into the park and even more options for nature-centric lodging and glamping nearby. But, with a thinking cap and a little elbow grease, we’ve uncovered twelve of the best places to glamp outside of Yellowstone National Park.

Considering the recent flooding events in the park, be sure you check out local road closure maps before you head out on your grand adventure. Most park roads have since reopened, but some (like the northern section through Lamar Valley) are expected to stay closed for some time.

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.

  • Location: Chico, MT
  • Sleeps: 2

With only a double cot (BYO-linens), a small dining table, and a cabinet for your pantry items, this cabin is far from the ultra-hip digs you’ll find on Condé Nast Traveler, but what it lacks in amenities, it more than makes up for in charm. With an old-school outhouse a short stroll away, a picnic table, and a private deck, you won’t need much else to revel in the majesty of Mother Nature.
