East Tribe Tipis are in the horseshoe to the right when you drive into the property. The first one you drive to being East Tipi 1, then ending with East Tipi 6.

There are two porta potty locations. One on the east side, and one of the west side of the river. 

The East porta potty is located directly east of the East Tipi 6 tucked in the trees. 

Each porta potty contains a washing station.

The 6 East Tipi's are located close together and would be a great location for a family reunion or any occasion where you want to be in close proximity  with other campers. The West Tipi's are more private and secluded and are located next to a very large field great for playing games. 

Each Tipi is provided with a mosquito lantern, 3 double wide cots that hold up to 285 lbs on each side of the cot, floor mats, a wire spool table for outside use, a bucket (required to be filled before you start your fire inside the tipi), and a fire ring that you can keep lit all night long. Fire wood is available for purchase. $5/bundle or $15/4 bundles delivered to your tipi site. If you pre-pay via venmo, we will try to have it at your tipi upon your arrival.

Recommended minimum things to bring:

-Old blankets and pillows (embers can fly from fire... leave expensive sleeping bags at home)

-Headlamp

-Covered shoes you can get in the water with. 

 

Available Activities:

-Fishing (Fly fishing, catch and release only!)

-2 Ax throwing stations (East and West sides of the river)

-Primitive bow shooting

-River Sauna on weekends

-Karaoke on weekends/big events

-River Tug of war

-Local Bison ranch where you can feed the mother and baby bison.

-15 away from Lava Hot Springs swimming pool and hot pools.

This property is located 15 minutes from down town Lava Hot Springs (between Inkom and McCammon) or 2 hours north from Salt Lake City, UT.

This land is primitive.  It's a place of refuge and safety.  The only rules here are as you cross the gate, you follow the Indian Ten Commandments .

The ten commandments are to respect the land and others.  Come with a open mind to be healed from whatever you might be dealing with in your personal,  family, or professional life.  I assure you if you put forth the effort....watch the stars at night, listen to the small water falls, silent your electronics, you will receive personal revelation from the Great Spirit, our creator, who loves us all.  If you forgot to bring a notebook and pen, don't worry, everyone that comes to this sacred land to visit, receives a notebook and pen.  Please find the time to be alone. Find your own little spot....there are several.   Too many to mention.  This property has changed my life immensely.  I assure you if you put forth the right amount of effort it will change  your way of life....we always have room to improve.  You will seek a better understanding of your purpose in life....why am I truly here.  To be a dad, raise kids,  or much much more.... 

This is a carry in carry out location.  There is no power, but plenty of sun for solar powered devices.

We encourage hi-tech equipment that are independent of gas, or utility power.  We strongly discourage noisy gas generators. We can show you what we use, i.e. solar power to run events like karaoke and pull water from the river etc.

We also have approximately 8 RV sites and many tent sites available.

Please feel free to contact me. The best way is by text message to my personal phone. Iif I don’t respond right away, don’t worry, I will.  Leave a very detailed text message, screen capture your booking and send it to me....i.e. My name is....i booked on May 5th, for East 1 tipi...on May 10th for 1 day.  I was wondering if I could change it to May 11th, and get East 5, because my friends from school just found out they are in East 6 on May 11th.   There are a lot of instances where either I can't hear my phone or my phone isn't with me at the moment.

The idea of staying in a teepee is pretty cool. However under no circumstances for health or liability, should they recommend (and as a way to upcharge for overpriced wood) making a fire in the ring inside the teepee. There is just not enough ventilation and the entire teepee ends up filling with toxic smoke that could end someone up in the hospital. I would be surprised if that hasnt happened. It ends up making it impossible to actually sleep in said teepee (my son and i had to go sleep inside our vehicle) as it took over 2 hours to get it to subside. The smell is then horrendous the whole time even once it is out. Not sure why he doesnt move the firepits outside. The proposed solution for emergencies is a bucket which you are told to go fill with water in the neighboring algae and bug infested creek..which is nearly impossible to get into without sinking into the muddy bank or falling in. Especially impossible at night in the dark, again something the host could have had prepared. Anyone who knows about fires should know that dousing with water is not the proper way to put it out. Not to mention that the site is literally on the side of a very operational train track. So yes, you will hear trains at 2 am and the evening before and early in the morning, so once again not a good night sleep. I also didn't notice till after booking or appreciate a 15 charge for a third person. Not sure why there needs to be a per person fee. There were just 3 of us and by all the pictures there are 3 cots that automatically come with ea teepee. Our host also was not very friendly or helpful. I was texting during the day to confirm arrival with virtually no feedback. We got there and he didnt know which site we were at. I told him as i booked it and he was arguing with me about it and said we needed to prove it by showing it to him. Which i was fine to do. He told us to wait and he would call us back so he could look it up on his end then waited for a long time without a call back. He finally walked over and i showed him which he acknowledged and said he finally found but definitely not the most welcoming of experiences. I mean who is going to show up at someone elses camp site at 9 at night in some obscure tiny town. There was no hospitality and definitely not uo to other hipcamp experiences.
