today, my favorite girl from up north, lori andrews, aka the 10 cent designer brings you ‘Teepee glamping’ (glamorous camping) in the prairies! what better way to start off my holiday, than with a great vacation idea?

Camping in an actual teepee has been on my list for a while. This month I made it a reality. I packed up my best wool points blankets, cozy down cushions and enough sheepskins to fill a teepee (I thought) and I hit the road for southern Saskatchewan.

My destination was the gorgeous grasslands of Southern Saskatchewan and four tipi’s that I rented in advance in the edge of a large natural Park (Grasslands National Park).

A beautiful green backdrop, gorgeous sunset and sunrise, and the biggest “tents” I have ever slept in made for a most memorable trip. Sleeping in a teepee is very comfortable if a little noisy (that is a lot of canvas and wood to be flapping around in the wind). I loved it so much. I’m going back. Next time I’ll bring a few friends, more cameras, more blankets, a dozen more sheep skins and my guitar.

Go rent a teepee. I guarantee you will not regret it.

  1. That is absolutely stunning. I am NOT a camper but I just sent this link to my husband, do you think you can rent a teepee in Ontario?

  2. We love the comments here about tipis .. We make tipis so we understand firsthand how special it makes people feel living in or just staying in a tipi for a weekend is … I also have some helpful info on my website about tipis and your comments are more then welcome
