You can't get much more authentic and unique than spending a night under the stars in a sheep camp! These two were used as traditional sheep camps and would port to a new location each time the sheep were trailed to new pasture. Now that the sheep business has become more of a hobby for our family, we have converted the camps into a cozy home for others to experience.

You can't get much more authentic and unique than spending a night under the stars in a sheep camp! These two were used as traditional sheep camps and would port to a new location each time the sheep were trailed to new pasture. Now that the sheep business has become more of a hobby for our family, we have converted the camps into a cozy home for others to experience. 

The green camp sleeps two guests on one full-sized bed and the silver camp sleeps four guests on two full-sized beds. (There is also room for tents - please inquire.) The camps are in close proximity to one another located on private property about 8 miles into the backcountry of Zion National Park.

Whether you are a larger group (up to 6) or a single soul, make these camps home while you do all of your Southern Utah backcountry exploring!

The sheep wagon had every thing you need for a stay. She provided firewood and we had a fire each night to make food. The sheep wagon had games, kitchen supplies and utensils, and it was nice and clean. The outdoor shower was really cool and the outhouse was stocked as well. Perfect glamping experience. Although, I would definitely recommend a higher clearance vehicle! It’s down a long windy dirt road, but the views are so cool! No sheep though.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! All I can say is WOW! If you have the opportunity to stay here, you absolutely MUST! We were overjoyed to stay in this sheep camp, as it was exceptionally unique, private, comfortable, and detail-oriented. Our host, Jen, left a lovely note for us, fresh flowers from the meadow, and plenty of clean towels/cozy blankets! It was so special to read her scrapbook about their family history in sheep herding. I browsed photos from several decades ago, and read about the first hand experiences of the camp we were staying in, truly an unforgettable experience. The outdoor shower was incredible, it felt so good to get a hot water shower while watching the sun set in the distance. The camp was equipped with games, all cooking essentials, and even a bluetooth speaker! There was plenty of firewood for us to use, and the campfire under the stars was just perfect. The mountain ranges that you can see from the camp are unbelievable. Our dog loved running around and exploring the meadow without any limits. Thank you for sharing this little slice of heaven!

What a fantastic stay! I can't say enough! I wholeheartedly recommend the Sheep Camps. You will not be sorry. The location and the seclusion were magical. The facilities were impeccable. Jen took care of every detail to make this stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. Jen's attention to detail allowed my daughter and I to truly enjoy the Zion experience. This included a back history to the place that provided a beautiful personal touch. I will be returning.

There was a huge rainstorm on what was suppose to be our first day there so we had to cancel our first day and stay at a hotel until the storm was done. It would have been impossible to drive to the camp site in this storm or even shortly after the storm. The weather permitted us to drive to our campsite the following day and all I can say is pure beauty. It was a pleasure to be Jen’s property and get away from all the city ruckus. We will def be returning in the future. Thank you Jen for being an awesome communicator and helping us enjoy our time away.

These sheep camps have been wonderfully renovated, the attention to detail is incredible, and they are stocked with everything we needed...coffee makers, outside stove, device chargers, comfortable beds and plenty of games to pass the time. The road is long and rough getting there, but the open sky and stars at night, the wide open spaces and incredible landscapes are worth it!

No cell service. 30 minute drive on a dirt road. The views are incredible. The northern trail head for the narrows is very close by. Campsite has most things you need, including a shower, a propane grill, tables, chairs, horse shoes and cornhole.

The mountain towering next to you is known as Table Bench Mountain, but shows up only a few select maps with a google search. Cogswell point is nearby and viewable at the north end of the camp area.

Zion is about 35 minutes away, meaning, if you want to go to the bottom portion of the narrows, get up by 4 AM. You'll drive back to the front entrance of Zion, park, and queue up in the line that is already there.

Alternatively, this is an excellent campsite to explore the wilderness just north of Zion; you can see the peaks of Zion's canyon walls in the distance as you drive out to this site.

Great place for solitude, silence, and viewing the stars at night.

You may see a sheep skeleton if you explore enough. This is an area for sheep to graze after all.The entire clearing and surrounding area can be hiked an d explored. This is following the tire trails south of the camp into the tree line. There is a dirt road or path that may lead up the mountain a bit. View of the outhouse. No running water, just a good ol' pit toilet; the view is the best you'll ever see while taking care of business. Wood shavings cover most of the smell, but not all. Zion Backcountry Sheep Camps

This campsite was absolutely breathtaking! We did not want to leave. The location, the quiet, being out in the middle of nowhere, it could not have gotten any better. Jen has thought of everything, you can tell she puts so much love and attention to detail into the place, absolutely wonderful. We can't wait to come back!

My family and I loved it up there. I have two kids, ages three and seven and they loved having their own trailer to themselves while us parents got nights away from the kids in our own trailer. The views were gorgeous and there was everything we needed at the camp. The dirt road seemed scary before we got there, but it was no problem at all. Even with a little drizzle of rain we didn't have any issues. My kids are already asking when we can go back. I highly recommend this spot.
