“oTENTiks; give visitors the opportunity to rough it while still enjoying some of the comforts of home”
oTENTiks; Located in Redstreak Campground high on the hill above the Village of Radium Hot Springs, is the perfect location for families to relax, unplug and enjoy spending time outdoors.
Ten 6 x 7 metre (19 x 24 foot) tent-cabins, known as the oTENTiks are available to rent between May and October. These oTENTiks give visitors the opportunity to “rough it” while still enjoying some of the comforts of home.
Part tent, part cabin, each Redstreak oTENTik sleeps up to six people and includes homey comforts such as high density foam mattresses for a restful sleep, raised wooden floors and a spacious indoor sitting area for late night card games. Under-the-bed storage provides extra space for outdoor gear, while unzipping windows, screens and a fibreglass door ensure comfort and security. Picnic tables and traditional fire pits offer the authenticity of eating and cooking outdoors surrounded by incredible mountain views and arid grasslands. Campground amenities, including grey water sinks, cook shelters, food storage lockers and washrooms are easily accessible and can be found close to each unit. Like camping, all oTENTik guests must provide their own bedding or sleeping bags, pillows, camp stove, dishes, pots, pans and towels.
