To preserve the natural setting, parking near your teepee is prohibited. Instead, each teepee campsite has a designated area for parking accommodations, and no vehicles are allowed beyond this point. Guests must walk to their individual campsite, but handcarts are available to assist with transporting personal belongings. Should you require aid, please reach out to the facility host on site.
