Glendalough State Park is one of three Minnesota state parks that offers yurts as a lodging option. There are two yurts at Glendalough State Park. One yurt, the Osprey, can accommodate three people and the other yurt, the Eagle, can house seven. The Osprey yurt has one twin-over-full-size futon bunk for sleeping, and a smaller table and two stools. The Eagle yurt is handicap accessible and has two sets of twin bunk beds and a twin-over-full-size futon bunk bed. The Eagle also has a table, two chairs, a bench, a glider chair and a side table. The yurts are located near the southeastern shore of Annie Battle Lake and must be accessed by canoe, bicycle, or on foot. There are carts available to haul gear. There is a fishing dock located near the yurts.

The yurts do not have indoor plumbing or electricity. Drinking water and a vault toilet are located nearby. Cooking or open flames are not allowed in the yurts. There is a picnic table and fire ring located near each yurt. The yurts have a woodstove and during the cold months firewood is provided at no charge. Pets are not allowed in the yurts.

The yurts are available for rent every day from April through October. During the colder months the yurt can be rented from Thursday through Sunday. As of 2022, the rate to rent a yurt was $80 a night. Reservations can be made online or by phone. In addition to the lodging fees, there is a fee to enter the park; a day use or annual permit can be purchased at the park office.
