Walking from the parking lot you will cross a small bridge and in the forest and you will come upon a beautiful yurt on a platform with a deck. The view from the deck is of forest and an opening to the prairie just a few steps away. This is nature, all around.

The Light Center offers camping in this 12 ft. diameter Pacific Yurt which is off grid and in the woods. It is essentially a camping experience, with everything that goes along with that (e.g., no power or running water). Bring your own heat.

This beautiful structure has a raised platform floor with a deck off the front. There is a window, door and a skylight.

A futon with sheets, blankets and comforter is provided. We kindly ask that all “Yurt-ers” bring their own camping supplies. Fresh, clean water is available at trail head so bringing container(s) for water or bring your own water. 

Please only start fires in designated fire pits. During burn bans or drought periods all fires are prohibited. All fires must be COMPLETELY extinguished upon leaving the site. 

Insect spray is advised during tick and chigger season. 

Please read the rules section for our alcohol policy.

Super nice couple.
Wifi was available at the barn, did not have great service for Verizon.
Be sure to bring all equipment camping materials you need including lanterns lights. No lights after dark.
Small trail to get to the spot but not far from parking . Loved the local dogs

Sunny was messaging me prior to my arrival, very helpful when I have been on the road for hours in the rain trying to focus on my gps and trusting that the host will have thought of everything sunny greeted me when I pulled in and guided me to the white tail yurt. The setup was thoughtful and complete, Sonny helped me out with some blue ice, be sure to store shop prior to arrival as it’s a little distance from stores in the direction I came from. . I really loved the setting as it was very private and had a serene view of an open field viewed through an opening in a thick canopy of trees. I enjoyed a nice fire and when it began to rain in the morning I was able to sit inside the yurt with the flap open enjoying the fire and my coffee while staying dry. This was a very memorable experience and one of the best on my 14-15k road trip.

Wonderful location to unplug and unwind! Beautiful scenery, and despite the heat, our yurt stayed cool. Futon mattress was painfully flat but nothing an air mattress wouldn’t fix. Will definitely be staying again!

Little hot in the summer time so had to run a fan on extension cord. Everyone was so nice and welcoming.

What a beautiful space, peaceful and surrounded by working farms. The yurt provided a “luxury camping” feel; a step up from our usual tent sites, but still simple - everything we wanted with nothing we didn’t need. The hosts were gracious and gave us a pleasant welcome and introduction to the space. The yurt was a perfect size for my wife and me, and we loved making coffee outside on the deck and watching the sun rise over the fields. We hope to come back the next time we are in the area!
