Winter Yurt Camping Information

Winter offers an exceptionally remote experience with trees and yurts covered in snow and only accessible by snowshoe, ski or snowmobile.

  • From the last week in October until Memorial Day, the road to access the yurts closes due to snow. Visitors must cross-country ski or snowshoe to reach the yurts  (approximately 1/2 mile long). 
  • There is no drinking water available at the yurts during the winter months.
