Yurt Camping- Touring The Inside Of Our Yurt

yurt camping in GeorgiaIf you have been following my blog for very long, you know that I have been wanting to camp in a yurt.  As much as I love to tent camp, I think the yurts have some very nice features also. This past weekend I finally had the opportunity to go yurt camping. So, today I am bringing you on an inside tour of a yurt.

An Inside Look at Yurt Camping

A yurt is somewhere between a tent and a cabin.  The yurt is a permanent structure.  They are constructed of wood and waterproof canvas.   I really like the locking doors.  As you walk through the door, you notice another nice feature of yurts:  furniture.  This yurt features a bunk bed with a twin bed on the top bunk and a full size bed on the bottom bunk.  The chair converts into a twin size bed, as well. Inside the Yurt

The paperwork says that this yurt sleeps 4 campers.  I believe they state this because that is how much furniture is provided.  Of course, if you are tent campers like my family, there is a good chance that you also have an inflatable mattress.  We brought our queen size inflatable mattress and it fit into this space perfectly.  Therefore, I would say that this yurt would sleep 6 1/2 resourceful campers (don’t forget the Pack ‘N Play®).Inside Look at Yurt Camping

These yurts also have electricity, a built-in heater, a ceiling fan and skylight.  The skylight may be opened.  Of course, it is winter so we did not open the skylight on this trip.  But you can still look up through the skylight at night and see the stars in the sky above you.  The canvas walls allow you to still hear all the night sounds of the outdoors.Yurt Skylight

The yurt also has a camping kitchen.  Okay, it is actually a firepit and a picnic table.  The yurt is a lot like a tent, remember.  In fact, you are not allowed to cook in most yurts.  And like tents,  yurts do not have restrooms. Yurt ExteriorOverall, yurt camping was a great experience.  I won’t be giving up my tent any time soon, but it is nice to have an alternative to tent camping if you are looking for a different adventure.

I’ll see ya by the campfire.

  1. I see you are from GA (me too!). Is this one of the state parks in GA ? I have been wanting to check these out. Looks very cozy. Not going to give up my tent either though.

    • It was fun! This yurt was in Georgia, but I know they have them several places. This one was pretty inexpensive, but I think they can be more expensive if it is located in a popular travel destination.

  3. I would love to do this sometime – looks like a neat camping experience! Thanks for sharing!

    These yurts are at High Falls State Park in Georgia. They have 6 yurts and lots of campsites (some on the lake and some on the river). This is a sweet and well-maintained park. So let’s keep in on the down low. When you find a great park like this, you just want to keep it to yourself (I know- bad blogger)!

  6. YURT camping looks like something I would thoroughly enjoy. A little rustic, but not quite camping on the ground — perhaps a happy medium for our family to consider! Are pets allowed?
