There are 5 teepees available to rent. The teepees are located near the bunkhouses at the back of Princess Snowbird Campground and constitute the original “Indian Village” that the campground was named for. They offer a unique experience, but be prepared to rough it a little! Teepees are 12’ in diameter and all have a light and fan. 4 people should be able to fit comfortably in one teepee. There is no bedding at all, and the floor is concrete, so please bring your own sleeping mats and sleeping bags. Bathrooms are nearby in the campground bathhouse. There are picnic tables, fire rings, and a pavilion nearby. Reservations recommended.
