Camping is an important tradition to American families, especially during summer. But if you are fed up with the usual tents, you can reflect, connect with nature, and get in touch with the spirit animal that lives within you in a Tepee.
Here are the best places to experience camping on a Tepee in the country:
Dunton Hot Spring Resort in Telluride, Colorado
For $1,400, you can spend a night at one of the eight luxury Tepees in Dunton, complete with gas stoves, private lounging porches, and en-suite bathrooms. Here you can experience outdoor activities such as horseback riding or hiking.
Tipi Village Retreat in Eugene, Oregon
Bring your entire clan in an overnight bonding experience in the Pacific Northwest at Tipi Village. This place is best for group retreats as it can handle up to 28 people. You can rent a Tepee for $150 a night here.
