Features That Make Spring Valley Tipis Your Best Value.

Cover Extra reinforcements part of Spring Valley Lodge tipi standard design

Our Tipis are reinforced at every stress point in the Lodge. (At the lift tab, the pole pockets, base of the smoke flaps, down the lacing pin flaps, around the door opening, and at the bottom of the entryway.) The bottom of the Lodge is double-rolled. (Not just plain hemmed or cut extra long.) Marbles and ties are included and placed in their correct locations. (No extra charge.) Smoke flap ropes are attached to the base of the smoke flaps at no extra charge. For your convenience, the Lodge is folded in a manner simulating it has already been set up. (All you have to do is lay it out, unroll and raise it. No messing with unfolding and refolding.)

Liner extra features built into the liners of Spring Valley Lodge tipi tents

The inner liner is a custom one-piece liner with two extra panels that overlap the doorway from left-to-right then right-to-left. (This enables you to close off real tight at night or in cold weather.) The liner is 72" high and double rolled all the way around. (Top Edge, Both Sides and Bottom Edge.) It also has an 8" turn in at the bottom. It ties directly to the poles at the top of the liner. The base of the liner has loops at each pole location. (The poles are placed into these loops at the base of the liner.) Securing the inner liner directly to the poles at both top and bottom enables you to get a more exacting fit. (YOUR POLES, YOUR LINER AND YOUR COVER NOW WORK TOGETHER AS ONE UNIT.)


The ozan is designed with your comfort in mind. It centers on the lift pole and extends five poles left and five poles to the right, then tapers back to the point just behind where your fire should go. The center is raised up like an inverted cone. There are 20" flaps that fit between the poles and over the top of the liner allowing good seal off protection. This also channels any water between the outer skin and inner liner.

special comfort and privacy features on doors of Spring Valley Lodge tipi tents Door

The door of the Lodge has three pole pockets which enable you to have a weighted door so it doesn't blow around on windy days. There is also a rain flap on the inside of the door. This flap tucks between the poles and the outer cover. Rain that normally drips into the entryway is now re-routed to the base of the Lodge keeping you much drier.


Sizes listed will be shown as 10', 12', 14', 16', 18' and 20'. Please don't let that fool you. Our sizes run oversized compared to some others. (Our 16' Tipi measures 18' front-to-back and 16'-4" side-to-side. Some may call this an 18' Tipi, but at Spring Valley Lodges, it is a 16' Tipi.)
