Frontcountry Yurts and Cabins – Now on Airbnb!
Frontcountry yurts and cabins are located within 100 feet from the parking lot and lodge and provide the perfect, easy camping options. If you aren’t looking to carry your gear further than that, we recommend these easy access Frontcountry yurts and cabins. We have three yurts and four cabins available in the frontcountry, and we also rent the Ponderosa Room, a studio apartment located unstairs in the Nordic Village Lodge.

Back country yurts are located between 1 – 3 miles away from the parking lot. These yurts provide camping options for those seeking the solitude and quiet of a backcountry setting with more space and comforts than a standard backpacking tent provides. Motorized vehicles are prohibited on trails. The idea with back country yurt camping is that you will pack it in and pack it out. We do however offer gear shuttles for an extra fee- read on below for more details! You can book online with the buttons below, or find more information on each unit in the list that follows:
