Item Description

Summer vacation begins! Don’t miss this rare opportunity to camp in a tipi at Upper Sioux Agency State Park, a prairie gem with scenic vistas of the surrounding area and miles of hiking trails. The park preserves the Upper Sioux Agency historic site and offers one of the most unique stays in the state – a tipi. It also features top recreation, including fishing in the Yellow Medicine and Minnesota Rivers, bird watching and horseback riding trails.

This canvas tipi is 18-foot diameter and set up in the Yellow Medicine River Campground in a stretch of prairie. The tipi can house up to six people and includes a fire ring outside the door.

This reservation was made over one year in advance – snatch it up while you can!
