Greenough, Montana – January 2011 – Glamorous camping, or “glamping” as it’s commonly quipped, at The Resort at Paws Up is soaring to a new level for summer 2011 with the announcement of their most luxurious tented camp yet, aptly named Pinnacle Camp, as well as an adult-only tented camp called Moonlight Camp (formerly Tent City). Paws Up, a luxury ranch resort in Montana, has mastered the art of “roughing it like royalty” with glamping since 2005 with a trio of tented camps including River Camp, Creekside Camp and the original, Tent City, now renamed Moonlight Camp. The opening of Pinnacle Camp, the fourth luxury tented accommodation at Paws Up, complete with full en-suite master bathrooms, is set for June 2011.

Pinnacle Camp is located on a bluff overlooking the confluence of the Blackfoot River and Elk Creek – one of the most breathtaking locations on Paws Up’s 37,000-acre ranch. The camp will feature six large tent-suites, all with en-suite master bathrooms. Four of the six two-bedroom tents will be outfitted with a king bed and two twin beds (perfect for families), another will be a one-bedroom tent suite with a king bed. Also included at Pinnacle Camp is a dedicated honeymoon tent called Tango Point, which will be located at the point of the bluff directly overlooking the Blackfoot River and Elk Creek. Tango Point adds an extra element of romance with a copper tub located directly in the living space. The safari-style accommodations are outfitted with a myriad of luxury amenities including jetted tubs in the en-suite master bathrooms, exterior decks with “Big Sky” river views and climate control cooling fans and heaters. Pinnacle Camp guests will have access to an expansive dining pavilion with a lounging game area and fireplace, a camp chef on site and their own personal “camping butler.”

Also new for the 2011 season, is the announcement of the first adult-only camp at Paws Up – Moonlight Camp (formerly Tent City). This collection of six romantic canvas tents is located in a cluster of towering pines and massive boulders overlooking an expansive meadow just a short stroll from the legendary Blackfoot River, allowing couples to connect with the great outdoors without forgoing the creature comforts of a luxury resort. Each well-appointed tent features The Last Best Bed™, a Paws Up signature with plush bedding fit for a king. Complete with high-thread count linens, gourmet cuisine at the dining pavilion, six private bathrooms (one for each tent) in the nearby bathhouse with heated floors and granite counter tops, a Spa Tent with views of the Blackfoot and a camping butler on hand to cater to every whim.

With the new luxury tented camps, guests can have it all at Paws Up – the perfect family experience, romantic getaway, or both.
