Our tent sites are in stunning Hobble Creek Canyon, with a backdrop of rugged snow-capped peaks. Each tent site is nestled in a private grove of trees. Our ranch was homesteaded in 1871 and we still raise livestock on the property. Our gate is about 6 miles from Hobble Creek Golf Course up the Left Hand Fork. Frequent visitors include deer, elk, turkeys and rabbits, with an occasional moose or mountain lion.

You will not see another campsite from your tent, which will give you plenty of privacy. This is back country camping, but close to home. Site #1 is at the back of our main field, nestled up against the base of the mountain.  You can drive your car to Site #1 (though parts of the driveway are quite rough).  Sites #2 and #3 are up the mountain and accessible only by hiking or Off Highway Vehicles (Jeeps, side by sides, mountain bikes, etc.)  If you don't have an OHV, you're welcome to hike to your camp site, or we'll give you a ride up in our Jeep for an additional fee.

Beautiful property with gorgeous views! We couldnt have asked anything better from Grant, he picked us up halfway on the trail with some ice cold water for our site.

We really enjoyed our visit to this campsite. The host graciously met us, with lots of helpful advice and resources. The views were unbeatable, and the privacy and open space were very refreshing. The horses are inquisitive at night, which we found to be fun and not disruptive. If you visit, remember that you're in the mountains where it rains frequently, and plan your gear accordingly. Worked well for us. 😊

Thanks Laura. I'm really glad you all had a good time. After so many weeks without rain, you sure got hit! You're welcome back any time.

The view from this secluded valley is a delight! The hosts and horses have gentle natures. Hearing the whinnies and being visited by curious equines in our tent was pure magic…

The host is really welcoming and hospitable. The land is beautiful. And for a primitive site, the amenities like the shower, picnic table, and portable toilet make it feel really comfortable. All around great experience!

We had a great time up at Hobble Creek! We we're driving across country and wanted to camp in Utah while we were there and found Grant's place. Its beautiful acreage up in the canyon with 360 degree views from the base. Grant was super accommodating and provided a load of amenities including a propane tank and fire pit which was amazing. He was very communicative, provided super clear instructions on how to get to the property, and overall was an awesome host. The camping spot itself was secluded and private which was nice. My only suggestion is to come prepared to hike up to your spot. We weren't super prepared and were expecting to drive up to the spot and pitch our tent, but discovered that the camp site was approx 1.5-2 mi from the base of where you can park your car. We were hauling everything by hand so the hike felt pretty long and steep, however, if you come prepared with backpacking equipment, you should be fine! The hike is rocky and has a good amount of incline, so come prepared with hiking boots or good stability shoes. Other than that, we had a great experience at Hobble Creek and would definitely come back more prepared for the hike. The views of the canyon are stunning!
