What to bring
Cold and wet weather clothing
We’re open rain or shine and everyone has a different opinion on the perfect weather. The greater Yellowstone ecosystem is known for unpredictable weather even in the summer. So please come prepared with warm/cold/wet weather clothing. You may also arrive right after rain which may leave muddy areas on property. For cold weather clothing, breathable layers will be your friend. If you like sleeping warm, you may consider long johns, sweats or several layers if you come during the colder months of the year.
Bug spray and sunscreen
Don’t forget, you’re in nature and there are bugs. Also it’s easy to forget that you can still get sunburnt on cooler days. We consider these essential camping items that you should bring. But if you forget, you can always purchase more at our welcome center.
We have pathway lights on property, but they’re not everywhere. And they are solar powered so if we have several days in a row of cloudy weather they may be dim. Sometimes cows wander onto the property, kick them over and break them. We also have lighting inside each tent. But having a headlamp will always be a helpful tool.
Good drinking water is always a great thing to have nearby when camping.
You’re welcome to use our picnic tables or camp stove to prepare whatever you like. You could also cook over the fire, or bring a stove. You may want to bring a cooler if you have any refrigerated items. We don’t supply coolers or silverware. There is a 5 gallon water jug where you can clean plates/bowls on the picnic tables. If you’re uncomfortable storing food in your car, you can store it in our shipping container. Just ask the staff and we’ll get you taken care of.
Having the right equipment can really transform your trip. Great things you might want to bring include fishing equipment, bikes, hunting gear, inflatable rafts, kayaks or climbing gear.
