The yurts are open 7 days a week (April 28 to October 28, 2017). Please contact the Parks Canada reservation system for availability.

Yurts are a very popular choice for a camping experience at Cyprus Lake Campground, especially in the spring and fall. Yurts will be available between April 28 - October 28, 2017 (reservations are required).

Reservations begin January 17, 2017 at 8:00 am EST. They can be made on-line at or by calling 1-877-RESERVE (877-737-3783).

Yurts are closed during the winter.
