our guests

There’s nothing quite like the outdoors. Sleeping under the stars. Experiencing Blackfoot traditional ways and culture. And that’s just what you’re going to do here at Buffalo Rock Tipi Camp . Not only do we offer hiking tours guided by a Cottonwood Valley expert. Traditional ceremonies lead by Blackfoot Elders. Storytellers who share their time old tales of the rich history of the plains people and authentic foods and drinks. At Buffalo Rock Tipi Camp , you'll find great packages that even an experienced adventurer would swoon over. Plus, we work hard to ensure the environment is protected during our tours, so you'll have peace of mind knowing that our company contributes to our environment's sustainability.


We are located along the Old Man River in Southern Alberta on the Piikani Nation Reserve.  Our family enjoys working together to offer this one of a kind experience to our guests.

Our property is rich in history of the Blackfoot people, offering ancient tipi rings, plant medicines and food sources. All of which can be identified during a hike with our guide.
