The weather was cold and windy when we stayed in Sept. with temperatures down to 34.°F. We lit a fire in the firepit and together with the good quality sleeping bags (with liners) and decent air mattr... read more »
We were out in Glacier National Park for our wedding and honeymoon and thought it would be neat to stay in a tipi. It was definitely an experience that we won't soon forget. We stayed for two nights. ... read more »

We had a poor experience at this Tipi Village this weekend. The wind ripped the canvas off our original tipi and the owner refused to refund our money and would only put us into a different tipi instead. The meals are not worth the money and you might be better off booking a hotel in Browning instead especially if it is windy and cold outside. We found it to be cheaper to stay in a hotel and more comfortable instead! We went there for an experience and we certainly got one :(
Okay I'm also a vacation rental owner and see everything for what it is and this place you get is exactly what is advertised. It's teepee camping not glam camping or it would be advertised as such and cost more and with an electric heater. Here you get a campfire right in the middle of your teepee, it's lovely! We were greeted warmly by the owners. The photos do the place justice and the owner will answer all questions, but give her a little time as her first language is German but she is fluent in English as well. We did not have dinner on site but wish we did. It looked amazing, but you must book in advance and we stayed the same day and arrived late. However we did order breakfast and the food is very good and well prepared. In the evenings you will enjoy a camp fire within your teepee, it's lovely. The flaps above let out the smoke, but after the fire subsides expect a little smoke but it does not last long. You will need a nice shower in the am which is a walk up the hill so this is not for the elderly. However it is for the person who is adventerious and the person who is at heart and really can't get out in the wild! In the morning I woke at 7 but stayed in bed as I could hear a train off in the distance. A slight whistle as it passed through the town about 1.5 miles away where there is a casino and gift shops. I'm heads there soon. Also the owners can set up art workshops as well as excursions! We had plans but this is a great option. I gave them 5 stars because the tepees are authentic, the place is clean and rustic at the same time. The little prairie dogs are running freely about the grounds, so as a previous camper stated you may find a little gift left along the the way. I did not see any and the inside of the teepee was clean and well set up with a thick pad sleeping bag and sheet liner with an extra blanket. So get an authentic and venture and enjoy this lovely place. We look forward to returning!!! 😀 Suzanne & Darryl
Nice place but they spelled Teepee wrong...
Worst experience of my life. The tipi wind could be felt blowing through the wind. They make exceedingly loud noises throughout the night. If you luck into a rare can night the coyotes will keep you up instead. They howled all night within a short distance of the tent. After a sleepless night we tried to cancel our remaining nights but our money was not refunded and we were forced to cancel our remaining days of vacation.
Amazing experience, campfire in the Tipi, glorious sunset over the mountains, horses just across the fence. The Tipis were very warm and comfortable, just watch out for the prairie dogs!
