The SpaceHow many times have you had the opportunity to sleep in a tipi on an indian reservation? Deer and coyote are often spotted crossing the site. We are also immediately adjacent to horse pastures on all sides. We are also home to a sustainable homestead model site and education center. Tours are available of our cob/strawbale hybrid home as well as our light straw clay office. Fees collected fro your stay support our community projects. Guest AccessThere are currently solar showers and composting toilets on site. We may be adding private showers and toilets for the tipi site but currently these amenities are shared with our campers. There is a covered picnic area for eating and in case of rain during the day. There is an outdoor kitchen that is primarily for group use but, use can be arranged for tipi renters however, arrangements MUST be made IN ADVANCE (hours may be specific/limited). For the reason we highly suggest you bring your own cooking gear. Interaction with GuestsWe live on site and are available to answer questions about the area. The NeighborhoodWe are centrally located on the Pine Ridge Reservation. If you are coming to tour the area ours is a great spot to start off. Wounded Knee Massacre site and museum are just 8 miles away. We are 2.5 miles from a convenience store and just 3.5 miles from Betty's Kitchen a local favorite restaurant her hours have been limited recently so if you plan to eat here please call in advance (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). Getting AroundThere is a reservation shuttle service that operates within the boundaries of the reservation. This is an easy and economical way to see the entire reservation. Stops 2-3 times per day at Pinky's store in Manderson (2.5 miles on the paved road). Other Things to NotePlease keep in mind this is a camping experience and plan accordingly. While many people have come un-prepared and still had a fantastic stay, you will be much happier if you have the proper clothing, flashlights and cook stove to keep yourself comfortable. Sleeping bags and pillows available for your use but please let us know in advance if you plan to use them so we can make sure they are fresh and ready for you. A minimum of one day notice is required, upon completing reservation is preferred.
