From lakes to mountains and the backcountry, Idaho yurts mean year-round exploration.
Whether you’re climbing at Castle Rocks State Park, fly fishing in Harriman State Park, or hiking in the Boise, Caribou, or Idaho Panhandle national forests, yurt campers will find plenty of ways to enjoy the Idaho outdoors year-round. In the summer, enjoy boating and windsurfing with a group at Lake Cascade State Park or fishing at Winchester Lake State Park. The winter is when the Idaho backcountry yurt network really shines, with dozens of backcountry yurts that allow adventurous campers to explore the Boise Mountains outside of Boise, the West Central Mountains near McCall, the Sawtooth, Smoky, and Pioneer mountains near Sun Valley, and the Portneuf Mountains in Southeast Idaho. Amenities vary and can range from basic bunks with wood-burning stoves where you need to bring provisions to more luxurious options that include electric heat, microwaves, hot tubs, and heated saunas. Most yurts in Idaho can accommodate between 4 and 12 people, and occasionally, even pets.
