Luxury Camping FAQs
What is luxury camping at Paws Up? Luxury camping, also known as glamping, or glamorous camping, at Paws Up bridges the divide between an authentic experience of communing with nature and adult desires for amenities and comfort. Each safari-like tent features fine linens, The Last Best Bed®, chic rustic furnishings, a private master bathroom, heat and, most importantly, a skilled camp chef and a highly attentive camping butler at your beck and call. Guests at our camps can participate in all activities and are encouraged to experience everything Montana’s only 37,000-acre luxury ranch resort has to offer.
What are the differences between the six luxury camps? While each of our camps provides the same level of personalized service and access to unique wilderness adventures, each has its own distinct personality and unforgettable setting. For a detailed description of the camps and their differences, please refer to each camp’s individual web page.
Can I stay in both the luxury tents and homes? Yes. If you can’t decide between a home or a tent, try both. We invite you to stay four nights in a home with amenities like kitchens, hot tubs, personal transportation, flat-screen TVs, laundry machines and more. Then stay three nights in a tent at any of our six camps where you’ll rough it like a royal. It’s like going on two vacations at the same resort—in the same week.
Which luxury camps have ensuite bathrooms and which ones have a bathhouse? Every luxury tent at Paws Up includes an en suite bathroom.
Can my group or family reserve an entire luxury camp including the butler and the chef? Whether you are planning a family reunion, milestone birthday, anniversary celebration, corporate retreat or any other special event, you can reserve an entire luxury camp just for your group. You’ll have exclusive use of all the tents and the camp’s Dining Pavilion, fire pit, chef and camping butler. Our camps are in high demand and tend to sell out quickly. To reserve an entire camp for your group, we recommend making a reservation at least one year in advance.
What dates are the luxury tents available? Mid-May through mid-October.
Is there an age limit for children staying in tents? No. For younger children, we can provide cribs or set up a play pen. We also offer nanny services.
What does the camping butler do? Is there one per tent or per camp? There is one camping butler who is dedicated to each luxury camp. The camping butler does everything from starting campfires and preparing scrumptious s’mores to assisting with planning daily itineraries.
Which luxury camps cater to families? Each of our luxury camps, except for Cliffside Camp, is suitable for families with children of any age. Each camp offers multiple two-bedroom tent suites, which accommodate up to four people. We recommend Creekside Camp and Moonlight Camp for families with children, since they are not located directly on the river. Moonlight and Creekside also have five-person tents available. Our newest camp, North Bank Camp, features tents that can accommodate from four to six guests, with two- and three-bedroom tents available.
Which luxury camps cater to couples and honeymooners? All camps at Paws Up feature romantic one-bedroom tents ideal for couples and honeymooners. Pinnacle Camp and Cliffside Camp feature special honeymoon tents. Their location and romantic amenities make these quintessential accommodations for honeymooners.
Where do we eat and what’s the food like? Each luxury camp has its own Dining Pavilion and camp chef. Breakfast and dinner is served each day at your camp and lunch is served at Trough, our casual dining restaurant. The cuisine includes such dinner dishes as baby back ribs with chipotle barbecue sauce, smoked trout cakes, bison New York steak and grilled salmon. Meals are prepared by each camp’s chef and served family-style by the camping butler. Each Dining Pavilion also has a variety of refreshing beverages available, including nonalcoholic drinks, beer, wine and select spirits. (Storing outside alcohol in the Dining Pavilions for guests is not allowed, and no outside alcohol should be brought to the Dining Pavilions.)
How far are the tents from the main village? Can we walk? Each camp is nestled in an ideal setting just a few miles from the Village at Paws Up, ensuring the privacy, exclusivity and serenity necessary to accentuate your luxury camping experience.
How far apart are the tents in each camp? The tents in each camp were carefully constructed to provide optimum privacy. Each tent is situated a short walking distance from the centrally located Dining Pavilion.
