About Us

How We Got Started:

On a property in Gardiner, we saw a future for Tipi Glamping. With sunning 360 degree views, an abundance of wildlife, and just minutes from the North Entrance of Yellowstone National Park, Yellowstone Tipis is the perfect place to camp while on your vacation. You can relax in luxury knowing all your amenities are right inside.

Living and working in Paradise Valley is truly a dream come true and makes every day an adventure! When you visit here, you will understand what we mean. Every summer, our entire staff works hard so we may show you what Montana and Yellowstone have to offer.

The owners, Patrik & Sarah Ondrus, are a husband and wife team sharing a love of the river, Yellowstone and Montana, and a passion for customer service. Our goal is for every guest to experience the same thrill that we feel every day living here in the mountains. We want to make your time here special.

Patrik was born in Prague and grew up in Bavaria, Germany. Sarah is from Oregon and was a guide in Yellowstone National Park.

Where did we meet? On the river, of course!

As a locally owned and owner operated company, we care about you, and the experiences you have with us. Our goal is to provide you with the best experience possible!

The Tipis:

All of our tipis are handcrafted by a small group of artisans in Bend, Oregon by Nomadics Tipi Makers.  All of the fabrics are made with non-GMO, 100% certified organic cotton, then finished with a Sunforger® treatment for longevity.  Nomadics is certified by Green America, for each pole they sell one tree is planted (17-20 poles in a set), and all excess material is recycled.

Since Nomadics tipis (teepees, tepees) are as authentic as possible in our contemporary world, they bring to the 21st century a “living artifact.” They make it possible to experience what a nomadic culture experienced hundreds of years ago. Nomadics tipis (teepees, tepees) are authentic Sioux-style to which have added reinforcing and design variations that are the results of our own tipi living experiences in snow, below-zero temperatures, coastal rain forests, and hurricane-force winds.

Nomadics Tipi Makers made all the leather tipis for Kevin Costner’s movie “Dances With Wolves” and Tom Cruise’s “The Last Samurai.
