This Kansas Park Has A Yurt Village That’s Absolutely To Die For

You might be thinking to yourself, “What in the world is a Yurt?” and you’d be right to question that odd word. It sounds like someone forgot a few letters in the word yogurt, but in fact, it refers to a specific style of tents used traditionally by those in central Asia. However, did you know that we have yurts right here in Kansas? This yurt village in a Kansas state park might sound odd, but we think it’s one of the coolest camping experiences you’ll find.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Though there’s a lot of benefits of camping in a cabin or yurt, there are also a few areas of Kansas that are perfect for primitive camping. Where’s your favorite place to camp in Kansas? Tell us in the comments below, and we might feature it!
