RUGGED SHELTERS FOR GUIDE & OUTFITTER CAMPS
Hiking guides, fishermen, camp leaders, and nature guides of all sorts have one thing in common: they know the outdoors. If you fall into one of those categories, you’ve probably been through your fair share of rough weather, and you know what gear works and what gear doesn’t. Visitors and guests trust you to navigate them to remote places deep in the forest, to a secluded bay, or high into the mountains. They trust you to help them experience the best nature has to offer while staying safe and protected. When you’re responsible for other people’s safety, you need assurance that your guide and outfitter camps can withstand the worst conditions possible. That’s why guides choose WeatherPort for their outfitter camp, lodging, or wilderness resort needs.
When you invest in engineered fabric structures from WeatherPort you’re choosing state-of-the-art camp facilities, perfected over 50 years and providing your guests with the ultimate outdoor experience available! Since opening our doors in 1968, we have shipped our fabric structures to more than 65 countries around the world.

GUIDE & OUTFITTER CAMPS DESIGNED FOR DURABILITY AND SAFETY
Whether you offer a small number of guests an intimate encounter with wildlife or take larger groups looking to “unplug” and enjoy the serenity of the wilderness, offer the best hunting adventure by putting hunters on big game, or operate a fishing camp during the spring and summer months, our building systems are easy to install, will withstand the test of time, and offer guests an amazing outdoor and weatherproof experience.
We understand guides and outfitters are concerned with the volume, weight, and setup of all the gear and equipment needed to provide guests with the award winning experience that will have them talking for years to come. This is especially true for pack in camps, drop camps, remote camps, high country camps, or mountain adventure base camps – areas that are road-less or hard to access. By design, WeatherPort camp facilities are engineered for portability. We offer carry bag systems for transportation by hand, horse, ATV, or helicopter. We also produce our own roto-mold containers in an assortment of sizes that are perfect for the transportation and storage of our camp structures.
Our engineered fabric structures employ a high strength frame systems available in galvanized steel or lightweight aluminum. The architectural membranes of our structures are produced with a proprietary blend of materials and impregnated with UV stabilizer, allowing our tensioned fabric structures to be setup and used in areas with extreme solar loads either seasonally or for year-round use. Our tensioned membrane structures create a weatherproof and comfortable interior, so guests will not have to worry about heavy rains, snow, or strong winds. From a maintenance standpoint, or engineered structures are virtually maintenance free. The fabrics will not rot, are treated with a mold and mildew inhibitor, will not tear, and exceed the California Code of Regulations (CCR) for membrane structures in terms of fire safety.
Guides and outfitters will appreciate the thought that goes into our camp facilities when determining the best place to setup camp. We specifically engineer all of structures with minimal tool and minimal foundation requirements. This means less time preparing the ground or camp site to begin setting up your WeatherPort structures. And less cold fingers fumbling with small nuts and bolts, being exposed to the harsh temperatures of late winter or early spring. Our engineered fabric structures can be setup and securely anchored into virtually any level surface. We offer an assortment of flooring systems designed to provide comfort and keep the critters and bugs out of your guests’ cabins.

We also offer complete systems for lighting and electrical, insulation, HVAC, flooring, as well as power generation and distribution.
In addition to designing the perfect camp system, you can also customize the colors of your WeatherPort structure.
