It is the modern adaptation of acient shelter used by the Nomads. The circular structure of a yurt has a wood frame, rafters, a framed door and an insulated long-lasting fabric cover. Most of the Yurts have bunks and futons, a deck and furniture.
You know, my idea of camping was always the Holiday Inn (back in the day). I didn't really like the "tent thing" or sleeping bag idea. However, you could probably convince me to spend the nite in a Yurt, considering it was the "fancy one with bedding, tea and coffee service, linens and a deck.
These have been placed in a local park to help boost the economy, located on a river. Well, folks, Yurt Away and have fun.
