Can’t wait to try Yellowstone glamping? Here’s what you need to know about the most luxurious options for glamping near Yellowstone.

Yellowstone National Park is known for its breathtaking natural beauty, abundant wildlife, and geothermal wonders. If you’re planning a trip to this iconic national park, why not consider glamping? 

Glamping, a combination of “glamorous” and “camping,” offers a unique way to experience the great outdoors while enjoying modern comforts. In this article, we’ll explore the best options for glamping near Yellowstone.

What Is Glamping?

Glamping is a form of camping that combines the comforts of home (often nicer than home in my case!) with the natural beauty of the outdoors. Glamping accommodations can range from luxury tents and tipis to cabins and treehouses. 

Many glamping sites offer amenities such as comfortable beds, private bathrooms, and even hot tubs. Glamping is perfect for those who want to enjoy nature without sacrificing comfort.

Best Time for Yellowstone Glamping

The best time to go glamping in Yellowstone is during the summer months, from June to August. This is when the weather is warm and dry, and the park is at its busiest. However, if you prefer a quieter experience, consider visiting in the spring or fall. Just be aware that most glamping sites close during the off-season.

Is There Glamping in Yellowstone? 

There are a few glamping-type options within the borders of Yellowstone National Park, but most of the most luxurious places are just beyond the park’s boundary. While I focus on glamping near Gardiner (North Entrance) and West Yellowstone (West Entrance), I will also share a little about glamping inside Yellowstone and mention one place in Cody, Wyoming that is sort of glamping.

Places to stay near Yellowstone North Entrance

North Yellowstone Glamping or West Yellowstone Glamping?

Yellowstone National Park has five entrance gates, but two of the most popular are the North Entrance in Montana and the West Entrance in Montana. When it comes to glamping, there are great options near both entrances.

If you stay near the North Entrance around Gardiner, Montana, you will have easier access to Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower Falls, and the Lamar Valley, plus Gardiner, the Paradise Valley, and Livingston. For adventure sports, food, and arts and culture, the North Entrance is the place to be. It’s also a great base camp for hiking in the Absaroka or Gallatin Mountain Ranges.

Glamping near the West Entrance is more central for reaching parts of Yellowstone that include Old Faithful, Norris Geyser Basin, Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and more. West Yellowstone has more touristy restaurants and souvenir shops than Gardiner.
