Originally homesteaded by Edwin Whiting in the 1870s, the upper reaches of Hobble Creek Canyon have been ranched by our family since 1901.  Edwin was a fruit farmer and I suspect that the lone pear tree still growing (and bearing fruit) on the ranch, may have been planted by him nearly 150 years ago.  Today we raise horses, but mostly we raise kids and spirits.  Come up, set a spell, and renew your soul.

Cozy Vintage Camp Trailer
Such a great place to land for quiet time with family. Several places to explore nearby. Trailer very cute. There is a picnic table, two chairs and a nice hammock.

Really wished we could have had more time here! Camping in this canyon was beyond, with stunning panoramic views. Grant was very welcoming and rode up on his horse to greet us upon arrival. So private (we might have been the only campers there, but if we weren't, we didn't know), which is often what I'm looking for. The camper is a nice change of pace from a tent, especially when it rained throughout the night! It is clean and cute and cozy, we did not use the shower or any propane but appreciated the amenities! Only suggestion is to use cupboard space and stock camper with supplies for additional camping luxury/accommodations (instant coffee, napkins, fire starters, utensils, etc.)

You Need to Try This Place!
This was an amazing experience! I can not recommend this land and the host enough. We did an hour of riding horses and would next time definitely opt for the 2 hour option. The horses were well trained and Grant was very knowledgeable and put my nervous friend at ease. I will say that if you plan on staying at any of the tent sites to prepare well. The hike itself is well worth it and manageable if you prepare well but I was shocked at how steep some of the parts were. So after visiting though I would probably opt for the prepared tent site that he has available. Overall, amazing property with pretty views and a cozy comfortable feel. I will definitely be recommending to all of my friends and hope to return for some more horseback riding.

Amazing stay
What an experience! This is such a great tent tucked in the mountains. We were greeted on the property by some very friendly horses and then hiked about a mile up to the tent guided by signs. Then tent is very comfortable and there is even a gas burner that we used to heat our breakfast up on. Would definitely recommend the stay here!

Picturesque Tent Camping
Beautiful tent sites situated in a valley. The skyline was beautiful. We were the only campers and it was very private & remote. Easy to find, just download instructions before since there isn't service within 15 minutes. The horses are very friendly, and do roam free, so finding a couple outside your tent anytime of day is normal. Warning though, if you have a poop eater with you, like our Beagle, be careful there are droppings every 50' or so. We appreciated having some extra water on-site left for us, we brought plenty of ice to cool it down. Weather was perfect too for early July, never dropped below 65⁰. Would definitely return.

Romantic fall escape
This was an absolute dream! The drive in intself is so beautiful. We loved hiking up to the campsite (although its a pretty steep hike if you aren't a hiker) The campsite was like the prize at the end of the hike. So cozy and warm and listening to the elk and the wildlife all night long was amazing. I highly recommend going in early fall so you can enjoy the beautiful perfect weather and the changing leaves.

Best Glamping Stay!
Glamping at this place was amazing! We did the 2hr horse back ride and it was so much fun! We can’t wait to come back! Definitely a hidden gem!

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.

A delightful retreat!
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. 😊

Great Retreat
This experience was so amazing! Grant and his wife Judy were great hosts and very accommodating! The tent was cozy and well decorated - they thought of everything! You can tell they enjoy sharing their space with others. We had a very relaxing time and look forward to going back again!!

Horse magic
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…

Family of 3 loved host, tent, views
I don't know what to rave about first - the beautiful views or Grant's welcoming nature. We stayed at three stunning hipcamp sites on our recent road trip, and this was the best spot in terms of both. This spot takes some time to get to, but the payoff is 360-degree views of gorgeous mountains and valleys, hosted by the friendliest host you can imagine. The glamping tent was a dream come true for our family of three. If you're not in hiking shape (or just want to relax), consider the horse or jeep ride up to camp - we needed it with our 3-year-old and gear.

Beautiful, Quiet Spot!
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!

Site 5 - Hobble Creek Backcountry Tent Sites
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!
