Since my family visits national parks on vacation, we have stayed in many cabins on location - in Yellowstone, Glacier, Grand Canyon, and Kalaloch National Parks on the Pacific coast - to name a few. I've run across yurts as options for overnight stays as well but I've never investigated until now. Yurts range from rustic (bring your own sleeping bag and pad) to luxury, like the interior picture of the one here in Bay City, Oregon.
