The Resort at Paws Up, Greenough
Greenough is maybe a 30-minute drive from Missoula if you’re traveling slow—this working Montana ranch getaway offers some seriously breathtaking canopies that we have a hard time even classifying as a tent. Hence, we have the word “glamping”, for beautiful camping spots that feature electricity, comfy beds and lovely naturalistic design, like you’ll find at Paws Up. Whether you’d like to totally immerse in the relaxation of it all via, yoga, swimming and spa treatments, or if you’d rather go rugged, riding horses and driving cattle, you’ll be staying in some pretty nice digs amongst the stars.
Collective Yellowstone, A Retreat at Moonlight Basin, Big Sky
Mountains and evergreens surround you, the stars pop with electric vibrancy at night, and you can retreat into your warm tent with antler chandelier at night. Trails and a stunning river are at your fingertips while Yellowstone is a short ride away from the lavish outdoor accommodations. A versatility of tents are offered, whether you’re searching for simple yet convenient, or something completely over the top. Charge your phone, bathe, enjoy s’mores and a hot breakfast—all the empty blanks when camping are filled in here at Gallatin Gateway.
Montana Treehouse Retreat, Columbia Falls
Is it still glamping if you’re in an upscale treehouse? We vote yes. Whole trees protrude through the multilevel retreat further intertwining families with nature while offering extreme comfort. Isn’t that what it’s all about? A stone’s throw from the stunning landscapes in Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort, adventure awaits. Full bathrooms, expansive decks and spiraling staircases scream high end, while you’re still right there at it all, from cross country ski trails to an abundance of woods to discover.
Private Wall Tent at County Rail Farm, West Yellowstone
Yes, you can stay on a scenic Montana farm for under 30 bucks. A pillowy queen bed sits front and center while accenting furs add a bit of an authentic feel. Warm up by the wood burning stove or just enjoy relaxing on the organic farm. Little extras are abundant, from dried flowers to candles.
Glacier Camping Wall Tent, Columbia Falls
Formerly a forest service tent, this cozy little shelter has little conveniences like a coffee pot, wood burning stove and a fire pit to chill by at night. Lots of little extras are strewn about, and a metal enclosed, open roof shower allows you to bathe amongst the tall pines, firs and birds. Glacier National Park is literally right there, so this lovely place is perfect as an adventurist’s homemade in the wilderness.
Sky Ranch Glamp Site, Clinton
This wide tent with somewhat of a teepee look sits on a multi level wooden platform, complete with outdoor kitchen for quite a lovely culinary experience. Inside, you’ll find pleasantly simple handmade furniture that adds to the charm, and there are three comfy beds for you and your travel buddies. Sitting at the entrance of Rock Creek Recreational Area slightly east of Missoula, a blue rubbing fishing stream awaits, along with the other beautiful aspects of mountainous canyons. There’s also a lodge, so guests have access to showers and other amenities.
Glamping Under the Big Sky, Butte
Imagine waking up to classic Montana pasture views, taking it all in from a snuggly queen bed encapsulated by a sturdy canvas covering and wooden platform floor. Not only is a compost toilet inside with a nice privacy divider, but the shower is solar warmed as well, for a comfortable, relaxing experience. Guests are amongst it all at the ranch campsite, as goats, sheep and other animals graze feet away. The surroundings are amazing, reflecting the overall typical landscape of the state.
Under Canvas Yellowstone Safari, West Yellowstone
Imagine all the perks of a hotel, like an onsite restaurant, hot showers and soft linens, combined with the majestic outdoors. Soak in the overwhelmingly gorgeous night sky bursting with stars, breathe in fresh, revitalizing air all in a picture perfect setting. Several tents are onsite, so there are some choices, and all have striking mountain views. The best part might be the proximity to Yellowstone National Park, which can be accessed via a 10-minute drive. A night tops out around 300 bucks, which is pricier than most, but oh so worth it.
Sage Oasis/ Roomy Red Comfort Camp, Hot Springs
Being close to the town of Hot Springs, the simple, yet well-equipped tent is, well, close to hot springs. Enjoy sprawling fields meshed with mountains, then traverse to mineral-enriched waters to heal your mind and soul. A solar shower and bathroom are onsite, but you’ll want a method of lighting your way at night. In town, guests can munch on some pretty good food, including dishes from a fantastic organic cafe.
