Best Hipcamp in Arizona according to Outside Magazine!
Large glamping yurt/bell tent on 10 wooded acres. With only 4 units on our 10 acre property you will not come into close contact with other guests. Perfect for couples, families or groups seeking an escape into nature. Bathroom (composting toilet style) and shower with on-demand hot water (May-October). Short drive from the town of Williams; 45 miles to Grand Canyon. Peaceful landscape, mountain air, and beautiful night sky!
We are located on the native land of the Hualapai, Havasupai, Hopi, and Diné people.
The yurt has 2 double beds. An additional air mattress can be added on request. It can get chilly at night, even in the summer, but we provide lots of sheets and blankets to keep you warm and cozy! We can also provide a propane heater for rent if needed. If you aren't used to mountain weather, consider bringing more extra blankets or a sleeping bag.
You'll have Wifi through out satellite service that is available May-October. We do encourage our guests to disconnect while staying with us, but the internet is there if you choose to maintain connection. Since we're out a ways from town, T-Mobile/Metro PCS is the only reliable cell network. AT&T does get a weak signal good for calls, same with Verizon.
The yurt is on 10 acres of wild land. There are two other yurts and our van home on the property, but they are spread out so you'll have privacy. Check with us before having a campfire to make sure wind and weather conditions are favorable.
Our entire setup is done in a way to be as sustainable as possible. Most items are built from up-cycled wood and we tried to limit the use of concrete and plastics. The goal was for you to feel like you are comfortably part of the natural environment. Please respect the land and it will take care of you! We respectfully ask that you try your best not to use single-use plastic during your stay with us. We really need to change our habits in order to save the earth! We have reusable metal water bottles for sale if you need them.
Our toilet is a dry and composting toilet. It doesn't smell and also doesn't use any of our valuable water. We are happy to discuss with any and everyone the necessity of changing our habits if we are to create a better more sustainable world.
Our shower is outdoors and a really amazing experience. There is on-demand hot water May-October and solar heated for the rest of the year. When the solar shower is in use it is heated by the sun so on cloudy days there may not be as much hot water as you are used to. The sun does come out nearly every day so this is rarely an issue. We are also in a very dry region, so we encourage less usage of water in general.
We provide drinking water, local information, plus a Grand Canyon park pass so you will save $35 going in. Just make sure to not forget to leave this when you go or we will have to charge you. There are decent restaurants in town and Zach is a trained chef specializing in delicious plant-based cuisine. This is a place to chill out in nature, not a party place. We don't mind if you have a few drinks, but no loud music ever, or loud voices during quiet hours (9pm-8am). Be respectful to the fact that we are on a hill and sound carries easily, and we often have multiple groups staying at once.
No parking space for large vehicles or RVs. If you are bringing anything bigger than an SUV, please check with us in advance. 1 car per group!
At times when we are busy with other projects, the yurt may operate using a self check-in process. We will provide a video showing how everything works.
During summer and fall extras like yoga classes, guided hikes, professional massage, and Reiki energy healing may be available. Please send us a message to inquire about our availability before adding extras or breakfast to your stay. We also run weekend yoga and hiking retreats from time to time. We encourage you to stay more than 1 night if possible to take advantage of all this area has to offer.
Please realize that this is an off-grid experience in nature. You will encounter nature and things that come with nature like insects, weather, etc. We don't have enough power for you to use things like hair dryers or curling irons on our system. If you consider yourself "high maintenance" please stay somewhere else.

We had a great time staying here. The yurts were clean and well maintained and the hosts provided plenty of amenities to make it a comfortable stay. We will be coming back sooner than later. Thanks again!
It was quite an adventure. We arrived at night and Carrie met us to show us around the facilities. The tent was lovely, and the beds quite comfortable. Carrie informed us that it was going to be unseasonably cold and she was right. Besides the loud thunder, lightening and rain, it snowed. We had many blankets and a small propane heater in the yurt which helped a bit, but we missed out on a clear, stargazing evening. Carrie and Zach could not control the weather, but as far as the facility itself, I would recommend the experience.
My partner, pup and I had to drive to Flagstaff from Joshua Tree for one night and we decided to add on a second night and stay at this Hipcamp so we could see sunset at the Grand Canyon (my first time) and then head back to CA. There were so many things we loved about this place.
1) You can stand up in the tent and smell the fresh air while cuddling on the comfy, real - not air - mattress. You don't have to set up a tent, it's already there! What a concept for us car campers.
2) The stars were breathtaking. We live out in the boonies in the desert and thought we had an amazing starry view already, but it looked like they had exponentially more layers of visible stars twinkling above us.
3) The place is set up with Mother Earth and fellow earthlings' well-being in mind. They were collecting donations for mutual aid for local Indigenous community groups who have been hit hardest by the pandemic, and they were educating people about composting toilets and single-use plastics, for example.
4) Swinging in the hammock in the morning was heaven.
Thanks for doing what you're doing, Zach and Carrie!
Can't recommend this place enough!
This was our 6th trip on HipCamp, and by far the BEST one yet! Carrie + Zach are the most hospitable hosts who make sure their guests have everything the need, often going above and beyond with friendly extras like yurt heaters, stickers, and more.
The sites were super cool, and even cooler was finding out that the couple built all of the camping infrastructure themselves - kudos to Zach's sustainability focus. Before we arrived I thought that the photos would be a bit too good to be true, but the interior of the yurt was as cute as we saw online and the cleanliness of the bathrooms/shower was top-notch as well.
We'll definitely be back!
The yurt was amazing, surpassing our expectations by far. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing place to stay very close to the Canyon, but away from the crowds and insanity I would definitely recommend this place.
