In support of efforts to slow the spread of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and following guidance from local and state health authorities, American Prairie is taking a phased approach to open visitor facilities under modified operations. Learn more.
The Myers Family Huts at American Prairie Reserve 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.
