Luxury Camping — 'Glamping' — The Ultra Private Siwash Star Camp™

One night during your stay, enjoy an ultra private glamping experience at the Siwash Star Camp™ in a pioneer-style luxury tent. Sleeping beneath the stars in one of these custom canvas canopies is an adventure in itself.  A wonderful Canadian alternative to the original Montana Glamping experience!

All guests staying in the mid-summer have the option of luxury camping in style atop the Ridge at Siwash Lake. In our private dark sky reserve, glamping at Siwash is evolving into a luxury astro-tourism experience with extraordinary star gazing. By adding a special sky light to our traditional prospector tents, we offer a rare adventure in the wilds that you'll cherish forever. There is no better way for getting close to Nature and marveling at the sky, while still enjoying your comforts, than to stay within one of these luxury tents. Raw wilderness is literally all around.

Enjoy sleeping in fresh air under canvas, gourmet food cooked over the campfire for you by your private camp host, a privately guided star gazing experience, and a cedar soak hot tub.

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 that is carpeted with bright pink Fireweed flowers. 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.

Please note: StarCamp™ is open mid-summer only. Overnight stays at Siwash Star Camp™ are optional and availability is subject to weather and other conditions at the discretion of Siwash management. Allotment is one night per party per 3, 4, or 7 night stay. In the rare event that this experience is not available during your stay, there will be no refunds and the resort reserves the right to offer a suitable alternative during your stay.

New for 2019

Star Camp™
on the Ridge at Siwash Lake

We have been watching the land on the Ridge regenerate and flourish with awe, following the 2017 forest fire. Nature's enduring powers and beauty are incredible!

We have added a private tented camp with new luxury tents in this unique setting to resurrect the world-class Glamping experience at Siwash.

Siwash Star Camp™ is making its debut in mid-summer of 2019!

The views of wild meadows, the lake and distant mountains from atop the Ridge are 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!
