Traditional yurts used by nomads in Asia are usually made with felt or wool. Yurts have been adapted for camping in the United States.
Only four campgrounds in New Jersey have yurts. Allaire State Park is one of them.
These structures are made of high-tech materials. It is a circular tent built on a wood frame, featuring wood floors, a deck and Plexiglas skylight. Each yurt has a lockable wood door, window screens and flaps, and two double-deck bunks, which sleep up to four people. Cooking facilities, water and restroom facilities are usually within walking distance. This makes it a more practical alternative to a regular tent, which must be set up and taken down each day, not to mention that it is far more comfortable to sleep on a real bed, and to move around more freely.
I wrote about this beautiful park and its historic village with its unusual chapel and Pine Creek Railroad last year.
The park also includes camping facilities, including yurts.
