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.

The view is killer, the tents are bougie as hell, the bed was comfortable, buddy heater in the tent keeps it toasty warm, you only need your clothes and your food.

Must stay
The location is beautiful, the grounds are beautifully maintained and Lulu has thought of everything. My husband and I had an amazing night away from the kids and responsibilities. Highly recommend.

The host was great with directions and there were much more amenities than I’d expect for the price! Great view as well!

Lulu and Nugget were great hosts and the land was awesome with fantastic views. We rented the RV site for our campervan and it was perfect.

I had a great night staying in a tent site on this beautiful property. Lulu is super sweet and very accommodating. I hope to return and stay in a glamping tent soon! Thanks for a lovely stay.

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.
