Now, I know what you might be thinking. What in the world is a yurt and why would I want to stay in one? Well, as usual, we at Trip101 have got your back. For those who don’t know a yurt is a portable, round tent covered with skins or felt and they’re incredible for those who want to camp in a unique and luxurious way. Save yourself the hassle of having to pitch a tent and bring loads of sleeping bags and camping gear, without dishing out for an expensive cabin and losing out on the essence of camping. It’s the best of both worlds! You can wake up in the comfort of a yurt, and curl up at night around a fireplace and a good old-fashioned wood burning stove while still getting to open your front door to the wild and stunning landscape. It’s the perfect solution to make sure everyone in your family has a great camping experience. Now, although yurts are quickly becoming popular, they’re not available everywhere, so if you want to check out an innovative and exciting way to camp check out this list of yurts in McCall, Idaho, USA!
This inexpensive yurt is in a stunning location in McCall, Idaho — right next to the Payette National Forest Federal lands and some beautiful state-owned forest lands! Sitting right on 40 acres of private land, this yurt is the perfect home base for all your travel and camping needs. It comes fully equipped with four single bunk beds (with shelves full of books to aid in your relaxation efforts), a kitchen, and an indoor fireplace! Plus, the beds come equipped with thick, comfortable REI pads so all you need to bring is a sleeping bag for extra warmth and comfort! Enjoy the rustic comfort of this yurt in all seasons. Gaze out on the majestic mountains covered in snow, and the vast landscape below. In the winter, go skiing on the ridge of Jughandle Mountain or snowshoeing in Jug Mountain Ranch. If you’re more of a summer camping family, head over in July and take a wonderful hike through the serene Idaho wilderness, or mountain bike from the yurt downhill to Jug Mountain Ranch, then have a family barbecue on the back porch!

Not only are yurts an affordable and innovative way to camp, but they’re also fun for the whole family and a great solution for those who enjoy camping but don’t always have the motivation to set up tents, ice-chests, and mini gas-burning stoves. When you decide to stay in a yurt, you choose to experience the towering pine trees, babbling brooks, and fascinating wildlife of McCall, Idaho, USA in a unique and luxurious way and you get to spend time enjoying nature from the front porch with your friends or family. Save time on pitching a tent or packing up the campsite, and use that time instead to go skiing in the glorious mountain ranges, or hiking in the sunlight-dappled trails, or swimming in the crystal lakes of McCall, Idaho. There’s no end to the adventures you can have, and when you’re happy with the incredible day you’ve had you can spend time relaxing and playing games as you watch the sun set on the valley below you (which is what vacation is all about after all, is it not?). Keep the fun and excitement of camping in an accommodation the kids will be thrilled with while still maintaining some of the comforts of home. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? So come on, what are you waiting for?
