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.

Your checklist

  • Sleeping bags, blankets and pillows
  • Food, drinks and a water container (Campground water is potable)
  • Cooking gear, dishes and a cooler
  • Slippers or indoor shoes - the first rule of keeping a clean yurt is to remove outdoor footwear
  • Matches or lighter to start fire in the cook shelter
