Elk River Crossing Tipi Camping

Elk River Crossing Tipi Camping was created March 2022. We have talked about opening this campground for a few years and it has finally all come together.

Ira grew up in St. Xavier Montana roaming the Mountains of the Big Horn Mountains loving the great outdoors, animals, attending Pow Wows and love for Family. Beverly grew up in Plymouth Utah. The valley there brought great beauty but eventually learned to love Montana and Yellowstone National Park. We meet in the summer of 1999. Moved to Utah to start a new life. We team drove an 18-wheeler and traveled to every state but Vermont. In 2002 we established our Native American Products called High Star Creations. We traveled to Pow Wow’s, festivals and craft shows getting to meet many wonderful people. We settled down in Pocatello Idaho but out Love for Montana kept calling us. We started looking for some land and this is where we ended up. Our love for the great outdoors, this valley, Sleeping Giant, Crazy Mountains and Livingston MT we decided to embark on opening our Tipi campground. This is also the spot where the Crow Tribe used to gather on the Yellowstone River, previously known as Elk River, that is where we came up with the name for our Tip campground.

We offer an Authentic Tipi living in our campground. Letting you experience the way the Crow Nation (Apsaalooke) (Children of the Large-Beaked Bird), is here for you to experience. Join us for Native American Indian’s lived years ago right in this exact valley. The Crow Tribe is descendance of this land right here. We never thought that we would be where we are today, getting to share all of this with you. This has been our dream come true putting this altogether.
