Luxury Camping FAQs

What is luxury camping at Paws Up? The beauty of luxury camping at Paws Up is that it bridges the divide between the 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, cooling fans, 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 five luxury camps? While each of our camps provides the same level of personalized service and unique wilderness adventure, 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, flatscreen TVs, laundry and more. Then stay three nights in a tent at any of our five camps where you’ll rough it like a royal. It’s like going on two vacations at the same the same week.
