Glamping: Tipi and Cabin

Blue Bear Mountain Camp is excited to add Cabin and Tepee rentals to our existing variety of camping options. Visitors can get in touch with nature and enjoy the camping experience while staying in supreme comfort.

Here at Blue Bear Mountain Camp we are dedicated to preserving the environment. A variety of eco-friendly options were considered and utilized in the construction of our off-grid structures including: solar and wind power, use of materials harvested from the property, reclaimed wood, insulation and waste removal. In order to preserve our forest, firewood cannot be brought into the camp to protect against the spread of insects and disease.

The number of sites has been limited to protect the land and offer a more secluded experience. This leaves more land for you to play and enjoy the natural beauty that is all around.

Blue Bear Mountain Camp is a secluded, rustic destination. Come experience the beauty of the mountains and all the High Country has to offer. Experience the outdoors your way, in one of our distinctive glamping options.
