Experience everything Yellowstone has to offer on the north and west side of the park
There’s no shortage of adventures and things to see near Yellowstone National Park! On the west side, you’ll see open Montana meadows with billowing brooks, famous geysers like Old Faithful, and the one-off bison sightings. On the less-discovered north side, you’ll see the gorgeous scenery of Paradise Valley, geothermal hot springs, the park’s best wildlife sightings, and more. Luckily, Under Canvas has you covered for your Yellowstone trip of a lifetime with two camp locations.
Under Canvas North Yellowstone – Paradise Valley is located outside the quaint towns of Livingston, Gardiner, and Bozeman, Montana, and provides unprecedented access to the north side of Yellowstone National Park. It is nestled on the Yellowstone River with a mile of pristine waterfront access and features bucket list horseback riding; on-site, world-class fly fishing and river rafting; hiking, and live music at nearby Pine Creek Lodge.
Under Canvas West Yellowstone is located just 10 minutes from the primary entrance to Yellowstone National Park on the west side and serves as a gateway to Montana’s unique hydrothermal and geologic wonders, diverse wildlife, and boundless means of outdoor recreation near America’s oldest national park.
