RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - There’s a new way to camp at Sinks Canyon State Park outside Lander.

The park is now home to three yurts. A yurt is a type of semi-permanent, cylindrical-shaped tent with a cone-shaped top.

Park officials installed the yurts at the Popo Agie (poh-POH’-jah) Campground and the structures now are available to rent on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Riverton Ranger reports (https://bit.ly/12nYVaw ) each yurt has two beds and a futon which folds out into another full-sized bed. Each yurt also has a space heater and an electrical outlet, though visitors will need to provide their own sheets and bedding.

No cooking is allowed in the yurts but outdoor fire grills are nearby.

The charge is $40 per night.
