Under Canvas just opened their new location in Paradise Valley, Montana, near Yellowstone National Park, with on-site access to Yellowstone River.

For travelers who enjoy the concept of camping, but don’t want to go without the amenities of a hotel, Under Canvas provides them both. This company, which made glamping famous in the U.S., has opened a new resort today in Paradise Valley, Montana near Yellowstone National Park’s north entrance.

Paradise Valley is ideally positioned to provide unparalleled access to the north side of the country’s first national park including major attractions such as Lamar Valley and Mammoth Hot Springs. Yellowstone National Park encompasses more than two million acres and spans three states, featuring dramatic canyons, alpine rivers, lush forests, hot springs and gushing geysers, including its most famous, Old Faithful. It is also home to hundreds of animal species, including bears, wolves, bison, elk and antelope.

Located on 50 acres of captivating ranchland, just 20 minutes from Livingston and 45 minutes from Bozeman. This is Under Canvas’ second camp near Yellowstone and third in Montana.

The Yellowstone River snakes along the area, granting visitors a mile of private access to some of the best fishing holes in the region—not to mention horseback rides, float trips, guided hikes, and whitewater rafting. With views of the Absaroka Mountain Range as their backdrop, guests can also take advantage of some fine hiking and horseback riding opportunities while staying on the property. Live music is available at the nearby Pine Creek Lodge featuring top Bluegrass, Rock and Country artists from around the country.
