Reconnect with nature at this unforgettable escape. Located on the river's edge of the Knik River in Palmer, Alaska, our glamping tents offer a unique experience. Unplug, unwind and kickback in our Stout canvas style bell tents. Each tent is stylishly outfitted with a queen size bed, linens, rugs, stylish decor and other amenities. You also will have your own smokeless Solo Stove with seating for two outside your tent. Only 45 minutes north of Anchorage, our location boasts incredible views with access to all things outdoor! There are shared porta toilets with foot pump sinks with soap for hand washing on site. There is one on demand outdoor shower! We have an outdoor kitchen with a BBQ grill, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, salt, pepper and other items for guest use. Half of the property is an adult glamping experience. Half of the property allows children, as long as you understand that we are located right on the river and children should be supervised. Our property is the perfect basecamp with easy access to hiking for all abilities; Bodenburg Butte, Lazy Mountain, Pioneer Peek and Pioneer Falls. Located right on the Knik River we can help you plan a day of fishing, kayaking or riverboat touring. Other local activities include ATV rentals, glacier helicopter tours, exploring the town of Palmer, the Alaska State Fair, a trip to the Reindeer Farm, Independence Mine State Historical Park, the Musk Ox Farm, horseback riding, touring our breweries, enjoying the local golf course, sled dog tours and so much more! Although we love pets, in order to keep tents clean and odor fee, pets are not allowed without permission. No smoking 🚭 Check in 4pm Check out 11am We ask that shoes be removed before enter the tent.

Tent or RV camping near river
Maybe this place is better during the main season or if you're an RV camper or in a glamping site, but I was the only person there the night I went (tent camper) and there's little in the way of facilities other than a latrine — no picnic tables, fire pits, etc. Beautiful setting but no way to actually access the river that I could see. You're better off staying in one of the many nearby Alaska State Recreation campgrounds — which cost approximately the same price.

Kenai Tent, along the Knik River
Amazing stay. It was rainy and 50 degrees Fahrenheit out and we stayed dry and warm in the tent. Beautiful spot, close to town so we were able to get food easily but very secluded.

Lulu and Nugget are sweet hosts and happy to say yes to anything they can do to help. Lulu told us about the dice on your phone app so we could play backgammon💖👊🏼

Riverside tent, sleeps four
Great views, wouldn’t return.
Beautiful area, fairly good amenities. Not a lot of dry seating due to rain, I would have expected more for a glamping experience. Not as friendly to families with kids as advertised.

Kenai Tent, along the Knik River
Glamping along the river!
Gorgeous location for glamping, tent or RV! Each site is situated along the Knik River with its own private area and unique theme. Laura has done an incredible job providing shared amenities; covered full kitchen, communal campfire, lounge areas, outdoor hot shower. It was raining for most of our stay, but we made the most of it, playing games and sitting watching the mist roll over the river. Her spot is also only 10 min away from stores and the perfect location if you are going to the Alaska State Fair!
