Since 1970, we have been providing retreats, campgrounds and recreation areas with our tipis. As a service to these facilities we offer this directory listing to all who are sending us pictures, a little text and a link to their website. If you have Nomadics Tipis that you are renting out, we would love to feature you as well – Just let us know.
Tipis provide an utterly unique overnight shelter for campers and are an excellent addition to any outdoor facility. Check out the success story of Ventura Ranch, KOA, who added a tipi village as an accommodation option to their campground. Their initial turn-key cost for a 22ft tipi including furniture and concrete slab was around $6000, their income per tipi is $8,000-$9,000 per year at a rental rate of $89. Considering that the replacement cost per tipi is around $2,000 every 4-5 years for a painted cover and door, a tipi village is financially successful even at a rental rate of $59/$69 per night. Properly staked down, the tipi is an exceptionally sturdy structure, able to withstand winds in excess of 60 mph.
We are constantly listening for feedback and are incorporating suggestions into our design and manufacturing process.
As a result, we are now introducing a Campground Model with the following features:
Here’s an example of a tipi set up in a retreat style where it is outfitted to be comfortable for guests: Road Runner Tipi Retreat in Lawton, OK
In collaboration with the campgrounds we have created a door solution that Velcro’s onto the cover and zips up through the middle, tying back on either side. The door opening has been increased to 5 feet high which now allows for easier entrance and a better closure.
The door can also be locked for added security.
Our offered critter guard is a sturdy, tightly woven polyethylene mesh that is sewn onto the bottom of the tipi cover.

If you browse through our Photo Gallery as well as our Campground slideshows, you will find many different ways to add artwork to your tipis. While artwork is not necessary to offer an authentic tipi living experience, it adds beauty, uniqueness and an element of protection to the blank canvas.
In wet and/or humid climates, we have noticed that a layer of PAINT will add protection against mold and mildew; therefore, we have created mural designs, which cover the entire tipi canvas to offer an effective method of protection your canvas. If you opt for the traditional look of a top/bottom/middle area, we can paint the middle background area in a canvas paint color of your choice. The WASH technique offers less protection against mold and mildew than the PAINT, you can obtain equal or even better protection by applying an anti-mold finish once a year (Please see http://www.tipi.com/tipicare/).
In dry climates, you can maintain the breathability and translucency with murals in the wash-technique or with the traditional designs in either PAINT or WASH. In areas with high UV exposure, we recommend that you protect your artwork with a UV inhibitor.
Below you will find examples of the traditional look as well as mural design ideas. These are only suggestions and you may create your own traditional design look with our interactive system “Create Your Own.” We have extended our SW Color Palette to 10 colors and we have many designs ready for you to choose from, just let us know if you need more inspirations.
The Price for artwork varies from $350 to $600 per standard size tipi for most designs. Mural tipis may be a bit more expensive, depending on the detail you choose. We will be happy to discuss your ideas and give you a free estimate, just give us a call at 541-389.3980.
A quantity discount will be added for multiple orders of any fabric or style, depending on the number of tipis ordered. You will receive a 3% discount on unpainted covers and liners for orders of 2-4 tipis, a 5% discount for 5-9 tipis and a 7% discount on orders of 10 or more tipis, when paid with check or bank transfer.
