You’ve dreamed about it. You’ve studied the great photos on our website and Facebook page. You’ve thought about the perfect spot. You’ve talked to your friends about it.
Now, maybe you should sleep on it. Or actually sleep in it.
We have a list on our website of many places to visit a yurt, tipi or tent. Some are at resorts, campgrounds or B&Bs- so you can sleep there. Others are at schools, camps or spas, which are usually available for a walk through. In all cases, we ask that you contact the owner to make sure they are okay with you coming to look.
Here are a few choice examples from our list of favorite places to see yurts:
Are you in the Denver area? The Plains Conservation Center in Aurora has a 30’ Colorado Yurt and several Earthworks Tipis. Visit them to see these great structures while discovering our local prairie.
You can reserve a yurt in our Colorado State Park campgrounds, including Ridgway, Golden Gate, Mancos and Pearl Lake.

And, we alwayswelcome you to our offices here in Montrose, CO where we have two yurts and a tipi set up for you to see.
