Pahaska Tepee Resort near Yellowstone’s East Entrance

Originally Buffalo Bill's hunting lodge, the Pahaska Tepee Resort is the closest lodging to the park's East Entrance at only 2 miles. 

Why is it called Pahaska Tepee Resort if there aren’t any canvas and pole tepees for guests to sleep in? It comes from the Sioux nickname for Buffalo Bill – Pahaska (long hair) and the Sioux name for lodge – tepee. The original 1904 lodge is still standing and it is open for tours during the summer months.

Even though there aren’t any canvas tepees, the cluster of A-frame cabins does resemble a tepee village.
