What is glamping?2020-04-28T16:19:42+00:00

At Moose Creek Ranch, glamping opens up the world of camping to those who prefer not to rough it. You’ll luxuriate in amenities that feel like home and leave conventional campgrounds in the trail dust.

The word glamping combines “glamorous” and “camping” into one word that has stormed the world and offered new avenues of escape. Though a fairly new term, the concept dates back centuries to the Turkish Ottomans. With silks, high-end rugs and even furnishings, they carried along tents fit for a sultan. Wealthy Europeans and Americans carried the concept forward in the early 1900s in safari tents kitted out with Persian rugs, linen bedding and a chef to make sure they ate well.

The past lives on at Moose Creek Ranch. Are you ready for luxury camping in the Tetons?

What is a Conestoga wagon?2020-04-28T16:41:39+00:00

Moose Creek Ranch’s glamping wagons will be based on traditional conestoga designs and built by our own team of skilled craftsmen. We plan to add glamping wagons that sleep up to 6 people by the 2021 season. 

Conestogas were horse-drawn freight wagons originating in the Conestoga River region of Pennsylvania’s Lancaster County around 1725. Built by Mennonite German craftsmen, these large, striking wagons were pulled by teams of six horses and carried up to eight tons of farm produce or manufactured goods. White hoods of homespun or canvas protected the goods from weather. Railroads eventually replaced Conestoga wagon trains. The smaller “prairie schooner,” famed for ferrying countless pioneer families to the West, was based on the conestoga design.

When is the busy season at Moose Creek Ranch?2020-04-28T17:34:56+00:00

Teton Valley is most popular June through September, but as a winter destination cross-country ski resort situated close to backcountry skiing and minutes away from Grand Targhee Resort and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, winter months are becoming increasingly popular. Fourth of July is typically one of our busiest times due to cooler mountain weather and an amazing local fireworks show both in Driggs, Idaho and in nearby Jackson Hole and Teton Village, Wyoming.

Do I need to make a reservation? Is my reservation deposit refundable? Are there additional guest fees?2020-05-07T02:22:44+00:00

We strongly recommend reserving your glamping tent or cabin several weeks in advance of your stay. Due to glamping’s growing popularity and Teton Valley’s summertime appeal, we anticipate our resort will reach full capacity nearly every night.

Moose Creek Ranch offers a full refund up until 30 days prior to the date of your arrival. Within 30 days of arrival, your reservation is nonrefundable.

Base rates for the Ranch House are based on occupancy of up to six (6) people. Additional guests will trigger the large group rate. Guests arriving with more people than originally reserved shall be charged for additional guest costs at check in. All other cabins and glamping tents have no occupancy surcharges, but are limited to two (2) to four (4) guests.

Is beer or wine available onsite?2020-05-07T02:22:05+00:00

Yes, both are served.
