Stay in a Yurt
You would like to overnight in Fundy National Park, but would prefer a comfortable and hassle-free experience in this beautiful natural setting? Here is an offer you will not be able to resist. Come stay in a yurt at the Headquarters campground.
What's a yurt?
The yurt is the traditional dwelling of Central Asia nomads. Made to resist extreme climates, this circular shape abode has five basic elements: lattice walls, roof beams, a roof ring, a door, and a felt and hide covering. Since the 13th century, yurts have been used by nomadic horse herders as portable homes.

Fundy's yurts are a modernized version of the traditional yurt. They are cozy and warm with insulated walls and roof, and a propane stove. In the summer, the yurts are kept cool with windows, dome and door openings providing cross ventilation.
Two yurts are wheelchair-accessible.
- Sleeping bags, blankets and pillows
- Food, drinks and a water container (Campground water is potable)
