Midwestern yurts offer upscale camping, some through winter
The yurt, to a Mongolian nomad, is a lightweight but sturdy and easily movable shelter that resists wind and adds instant shade to treeless terrain.
For the U.S. traveler, yurt lodging is “glamping,” a getaway that adds traces of glamour to camping. It begins with the luxury of standing instead of crawling into a canvas structure that has a door, a wooden floor and a bed for your sleeping bag.
How far the frills go from there depends on the location.
