Yurts offer an accessible camping experience for campers of all abilities and are a comfortable way to enjoy natural surroundings without “roughing it.”


A yurt is a circular, domed structure that is supported by a wooden frame and covered in heavy, durable canvas. It has a spacious interior with a skylight, screened windows, and locking doors. DCR yurts are furnished with beds, a table and chairs, and electricity.

These yurts can accommodate either 4 or 6 people, so bring your family and friends! The smaller yurts cost $45 per night for MA residents and $50 for non-MA residents. Larger yurts cost $55 per night for MA residents and $60 for non-MA residents.
