Campfires are currently prohibited on American Prairie deeded land due to extreme wildland fire danger.
The Myers Family Huts at American Prairie provide visitors with a base camp from which to explore the prairie. In the tradition of other hut systems around the world, these huts offer comfortable and affordable accommodations in spectacular settings.
For those who’d like a full-service option – including meals, sleeping bags, and guided tours – please contact our friends at Lewis and Clark Trail Adventures. Custom trips are available for groups of six or more.

The Myers Family
The Myers Family Huts were established with an inaugural gift from Gib and Susan Myers in 2016. Gib and Susan have served as Board Directors for American Prairie since our founding, with Gib serving as Board Chair during our founding decade. Together, Gib and Susan have made significant contributions that inspire others to fall in love with the prairie, including their leadership gift to establish American Prairie's network of visitor huts. To recognize Gib and Susan’s investment and commitment, we are thrilled to name the hut system in their honor.
