Glamping in the Wilds—A Private, Luxury Camp at Siwash Lake

Sleeping beneath the stars is an adventure in itself. Beginning in summer, 2019, all guests will have the option of camping in style atop the Ridge at Siwash Lake. One night during your stay, enjoy a private camp-out at Siwash Star Camp™ in a pioneer-style canvas wall tent.

At the remote Siwash Lake Wilderness Resort, we're redefining the hottest new trend in high-end travel—"Glamping" (glamorous camping). In our post-wildfire, dark sky reserve, glamping at Siwash is evolving into a luxury astro-tourism experience with extraordinary star gazing. By adding an observatory platform to our traditional prospector tents, we offer a rare adventure in the wilds that you'll cherish forever. There is no better way for guests to get close to Nature and marvel at the sky, while still enjoying creature comforts, than to stay within one of these natural shelters. Raw wilderness is literally all around.

Siwash Star Camp™ is located on the Ridge portion of the property. From the Ranch House—which is the hub of the resort for dining, lounging and main guest lodgings—you will enjoy a 10-minute walk across the home meadow, over the lake via a solar-lit boardwalk, and up the trail through a rare and unique, post-wildfire snag forest. Atop the Ridge awaits your private Star Camp™ tent with panoramic views.

Imagine this.... As night falls, you're content under canvas beneath the stars while snuggled amid the finest linens. A loon call resonates from across the lake—the quintessential song of the wilds. A faint scent of wood smoke lingers from fading campfire embers, while a ranch horse whinnies in the distance.

Later, the moon casts gossamer threads of light across your canopy above. Then at dawn, after a blissfully sound sleep, you awaken to crisp country air. Warmth radiates through your tent from the sun's golden glow upon canvas.

New for 2019

Star Camp™
on the Ridge at Siwash Lake

We are eager to watch the land on the Ridge regenerate and flourish again after the forest fire.

As soon as possible, we are building some new canvas structures to resurrect the Glamping experience at Siwash.

Siwash Star Camp™ is set to make its debut in summer of 2019!

In the meantime, the views from atop the Ridge are still stunning. It's the best place on the property to watch a stellar sunrise or sunset.

At night, by the warmth of a campfire, gaze at the most remarkable starlit skies. If your lucky, you'll enjoy a show of Aurora Borealis—the Northern Lights!
