Looking to get away from it all and find some solitude in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem this summer? Tulip, our teardrop trailer, is the perfect way to escape and explore in comfort and style. You'll be smiling and laughing as you explore the beauty of Yellowstone and the Tetons. It sleeps two in cozy comfort (70" x 75") . Outfitted with a large stargazing window, you can fall asleep gazing at the Milky Way, listening to the night time sounds of the mountains, while still being safe and warm inside this hard-sided trailer. It's set up for dry camping, but has the option to plug into shore power (30 amp) if available. The shore power will allow you to operate the air conditioner, while everything else electric can operate off the battery. The trailer includes a two-burner propane stove, sink with pump to an 8 gallon water tank, Yeti cooler, solar panels that automatically charge the battery, LED lights, 3 speed fan, window screens, night shades, USB, and 12V outlets. It comes complete with pots, pans, utensils, cocktail glasses, a roll table, and marshmallow skewers for those glorious summer nights by the campfire. Just bring Sleeping Bags and Pillows.
To tow this trailer, your vehicle needs a class 3 hitch with a 2" ball. It has a wet weight of 1703 pounds. Many mid-sized vehicles, like Subaru Outbacks, CAN tow this trailer. To determine if your vehicle can tow this trailer, consult a tow guide. The website "Trailer Life" puts out a comprehensive guide. We are happy to Deliver to your camp too.
This trailer is perfect for exploring Yellowstone. At 13'7", Tulip fits into most any campsite. Because Tulip is lightweight, you can pick her up by the handles and move it into the idea camping position. The hard-sided, locked storage gives you piece of mind when you leave camp to explore during the day. In the evening, pour yourself a drink, relax in a camp chair under the Slim Shady awning, and cook a delicious meal in the great outdoors.

Yellowstone National Park is the premier destination in the area with geothermal features, stunning waterfalls, the picturesque Yellowstone Lake, hundreds miles of trails, herds of bison, black bears, grizzly bears, wolves and so much more. Best wildlife viewing can be done early in the morning or at dusk. Get up before the sun and take a drive to Hayden Valley or Lamar Valley. Bring your binoculars and spotting scopes. There are a wide variety of camp areas, but be sure to plan ahead, as campsites are booked 6 months in advance. Reservations generally open in mid to late January. This summer, 2021, the only campsite in YNP with electric hookups, Fishing Bridge RV park, is closed for renovations. We have assembled a document with links to many of the camping areas and local businesses mentioned in here. Just ask us to send you a copy.
Bordering Yellowstone to the south is Teton National Park, a spectacular destination in it's own right. Kayak on Jackson Lake and admire the view of the Tetons rising high above the Snake River. You could head out of the park and explore Jackson Hole. There's great camping here too. We really like Gros Ventre campground, which is close to Jackson and allows you to explore Teton NP and the Jackson Hole area.
Minutes west Yellowstone NP is the Madison River, which starts in the park. The Madison is renowned for it's world class trout fishing. If you want to learn how to fly fish, there are multiple fishing outfitters right in West Yellowstone. If you like to mountain bike, West Yellowstone has a variety of choices including Rendezvous, the Continental Divide Trail and also some easy bike rides in the park including near Old Faithful. If you need a bike, visit the local shop, Freeheel and Wheel. The Madison River flows into Hebgen Lake, which has many campgrounds along it's huge shoreline. Popular campgrounds include Rainbow Point Campground and Baker's Hole. These are operated by the Custer-Gallatin National Forest, Hebgen Lake Ranger District. There are also some private campgrounds around Hebgen Lake including Yellowstone Holiday and the Madison Arm Resort. Right in the village of West Yellowstone are several RV parks including: Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park, Buffalo Crossing RV Park, Pony Express RV Park, Wagon Wheel RV Park, and several more. Just search for RV parks in West Yellowstone.
If you drive west on Highway 20 about 14 miles you will cross in to Idaho and the Island Park area. There's horse back riding, fishing, camping, and hiking. The city of Island Park has America's longest main street (36.8 miles). Henry's Lake State Park is also beautiful place to visit and camp.
If you are looking for a circle tour, follow 191 north out of West Yellowstone and head west on US Highway 287. The road follows the north shore of Hebgen Lake. You will find a self guided auto route that recounts the events of August 17, 1959 that resulted in the formation of Quake Lake. Stop at the Quake Lake Visitor's Center, which is 27 miles northwest of West Yellowstone. As you continue on your journey down towards the Madison Valley, look for mountain bighorn sheep near the highway. They are often spotted as the steep canyon walls give way to the valley floor. To loop back around to West Yellowstone, turn south onto Highway 87. This part of the drive affords great views of Henry's Lake and will take you back to US Highway 20. It is a T-intersection. If you go east, you will find yourself back in West Yellowstone.
If you drive north on 191 past US Highway 287, about 50 miles, you will follow the Gallatin River to Big Sky. This route takes you back into the park, but there are no fee stations. There are a multitude of trailheads along this stretch of highway. Be sure to bring your bear spray for hiking or fishing. There are also great places to fish along the Gallatin River as well, but you will need a special permit to fish inside the park boundary. The fishing season runs from the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend (usually the last weekend in May) and extends through the first Sunday in November in the park. Be sure to have your MT fishing license for all other fishing endeavors. In Big Sky you can sign up to zipline up at the ski resort, go for a horse back ride, or do some whitewater rafting.
The possibilities are endless around here! Please feel free to ask for more ideas.

Though we love pets, not everyone who rents from us loves animals. Because the trailer is primarily for sleeping, we want to keep it pet free. That will make it much easier to keep clean, fresh, and allergen free for the next folks who want to use it. Thank-you for understanding.
