The Needles District of Canyonlands National Park will provide stunning scenery and sweeping vistas, world class hiking and climbing; and all this on the path less traveled and without heavy crowds.

HOW TO GET HERE
Save the directions laid out! There is a good chance you won’t have service to reference this later.
*Type in Glamping Canyonlands and we will come up on Maps.
*We are just .5 miles or a couple minute drive as soon as you make the turn from HWY 191 onto HWY 211.
*Pull into the gravel parking lot on the right hand side. You will see “private property, private drive” signs.
*There is no parking next to your tent. We need to keep traffic off the land to mend the damage done during construction.
*If arriving during daylight, almost immediately when entering HWY 211, you will see our canvas tents and buildings.
*If arriving after dark, you will see solar lights on the ground.
If coming from Moab, load your GPS or any other service related needs before leaving town. The drive to us is rural with no service.
If coming from Monticello, service is available most of the way. However once you pass a sign called, Elk Meadows, service will start to fade. By the time you make it down the large hill, “Peters Hill”, you will no longer have service.
**2 GUESTS MAX for Stargazer, Mesa and Mountain Tents. Do not bring anymore than 2 ppl. We have reasons for not allowing more than that. Please do not break this simple rule.**

We do not have WIFI and service is limited. Those with Verizon and AT&T may experience service. T-Mobile users do not get service.
To help move your luggage, there is a green cart behind the bathroom for your use.
We have 2 very friendly dogs, Crow and Raven. If they are around, they will greet you upon arrival. Please keep an eye out for them when coming and going with your vehicle. We have dogs but we do not allow other dogs to stay on property.
We recommend bringing your own drinking water. We haul water from town and city water is not the best drinking water.
*June-Aug. Tubes are available at no cost to use at Foy or Monticello Lake. Only 25 mins from us! These are located by the bathroom building.
We would prefer our guests not smoke on the property but if you would like to, smoking is only allowed at the parking lot or inside your vehicle. Do not flick the cigarette butts onto the ground and make sure they are completely out before discarding them. If seen smoking anywhere else, you will be asked to put it out.
Hush hours are 11:00pm - 6:00am.
COMMUNAL BATHROOM & KITCHEN
The off grid bathroom is the green building directly in front of the parking lot. As we only have 1 bathroom and limited water, please be mindful of your time and usage. We provide towels, hand soap, hand towels, toilet paper and a communal basket for bath supplies.
The communal outdoor kitchen is located behind the bathroom. You will find a sink, a grill, a stovetop, pot, pans, plates, bowls, cups, cooking utensils, cutlery, can opener, wine opener, scissors, cutting boards, measuring cup, grilling supplies, s’mores sticks, cleaning sponge, dish soap, communal cooking supplies, coolers to borrow, to-go coffee and to-go cups. There is no power to the kitchen so we do not have a refrigerator or microwave. If borrowing a cooler, please return to kitchen empty and clean.
Attached to the kitchen are shaded picnic tables and 6 hammocks for everyone to use!
*The grocery store in Monticello (Blue Mountain Foods) is closed on Sundays.
Please, no shoes in the tent, especially on the carpets. There is a tray by the opening for your shoes. Bring slippers if you have them!
Please keep your tent zipped up. In the summer we have insects and in the winter we have frost.
There is no insulation inside the tents so whatever the temperature is outside, it will be inside the tent as well. Please zip the windows and door closed when leaving as the weather is unpredictable.
Desert nights are chilly. Beanies, warm socks and slippers are some of the things we suggest to keep you comfortable.
Propane heaters are in the tents. These won’t heat the space like in a home but just enough to take the chill out. Bring the 1lb green propane tanks if you would like to use this. One tank lasts approx 2 hrs on high and 5 hrs on low. We also keep a supply on hand if you would like to purchase them here. They are $7.00 each. We work off an honor system so cash can be left in the red drop box near the kitchen.

French press coffee for 2 (Desert Sunset up to 4) is left outside your tent every morning around sunrise. If you do not want this service, please let us know.
Bring a telescope if you have one as the night sky is one of the best features of this property! No obstructions so you will have clear views of the brilliant sky. We recommend downloading The SkyView Lite app and The Moon app. This will help you determine a full night of stars or the moon cycle (weather permitting).

10/10 would recommend
Keyshia has an eye for all the little details that add up to an exceptional space/experience. My only disappointment was that I over planned my activities while in Moab and couldn't spend more time just enjoying the wonderful oasis Keyshia has created.
The Stargazer tent was so much fun to stay at! It is extremely comfy and the attention to detail in the decor was beautiful. The camp bathroom with flushing toilet and warm shower made it even better. Another plus - they bring you French press coffee at sunrise. I’d highly recommend staying here.
Keshia and her husband were wonderful hosts. They greeted us with a warm welcome and provided hiking advice. The next day, when we returned from the hike they greeted us with an extra blanket because it was going to get cold that night. Waking up to catch sunrise with freshly delivered coffee was an awesome experience. They’ve truly thought of everything.
5/5 recommend stargazer tent! :)
My Fiancé and I had a wonderful weekend at the Off Grid Canyonlands Stargazer Tent! We both love to camp, and never experienced glamping like this! It's seriously an outdoor hotel... and I was very pleased with the bathroom/shower upkeep (and I'm not one to go into shared showers during this time). Keshia and Erik were more than accommodating. I absolutely loved waking up to coffee on our porch... a great pick-me-up after a day of hiking the Arches/Canyonlands! Would 5/5 recommend and hopefully be back soon!
Never seen stars like that!
We have been talking about the amazing experience to all our friends back in our state. This trip to the middle of the desert became one of our best memories. This cozy and adorable cabin in the desert area got the best spot to see stars. We could even see the milky way with bare eyes. And of course, so many shooting stars. If you stay there, you will definitely know what we are talking about. Thank you Keshia and Eric!
A great place to stay! Everything was as expected and we had a great time. Definitely refreshing after a couple nights of tent camping with no showers. Thank you for sharing your place with us!!
We had an amazing time here it was an absolutely gorgeous area and the tent had everything we needed and more! They did such a great job making it feel very homey and comfortable. The hosts were amazing to us and provided such a wonderful experience that made our time in the Canyonlands one to remember!
Magic under the milky way
This place is a dream! We only stayed one night, but it was magical and I can't wait to come back. Everyone was really helpful and friendly. We did some astrophotography from our tent and watched the milky way all night.
