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 slap 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.

Exclusive Nomadics Zipper Door

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.

Zipper door securely locked.

Optional Critter Guard

Our offered critter guard is a sturdy, tightly woven polyethylene mesh that is sewn onto the bottom of the tipi cover.
