Campers visiting Flatiron Reservoir southwest of Loveland can now spend the night in a tipi. Three tipis are available for reservation via www.larimercamping.com with reservable dates beginning August 28. The tipis will be up through the summer camping season but the sites will revert to walk-in tent sites between October 15 and April 30 each year.
“The tipis are a great addition to our system,” said Chris Fleming, Blue Mountain District Manager for Larimer County Natural Resources, “We’re always trying to add fun new things to the camping experiences we offer and we think these will be a big hit, especially with families!”
Tipis rent for $35 per night, and sleep four adults and a couple of kids comfortably. Visitors will be able to pitch a tent next to the tipi in each site for additional space (up to 8 people max in each site). Each site is equipped with a fire grate, a picnic table, and a string of electric lights that illuminates the tipi interior. Visitors should plan to bring their own cots or sleeping mats and bedding. Two out of the three tipi sites are ADA accessible. No smoking or dogs will be allowed inside of the tipis.
