This far exceeded our expectations! Shane has an amazing setup that makes you feel far away from the real world. The vintage trailer with it’s own outhouse and fire pit was perfect to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The Nest rocks!

absolutely great time with shane, really friendly and great amenities. Really cute camper with so many features and details such as the buddy heater and solar powered outlets in the camper. Sheets and bedding was clean, communal fire, kitchen, and showers were amazing. Had a great time hanging out with mike and shane around the fire after a long day of hiking, great guys.

This camping experience is for a very particular type of adventurer. Think: traveling into the Australian outback. You HAVE to have a sturdy vehicle, best with 4-wheel something. It is not a road. It is a dirt/rock/pothole trail. The site is very quirky, quite raw but very playfully decorated. Strung lighting here and there. Very raw do it yourself communal 'kitchen'. We stayed in the purple camper fo 2 nights. Sort of set up for hippy-community engagement. Seems to be a work in progress. Only one other couple the second night. A bit creepy way out there in the middle of nowhere. At night. Beautiful stars.

Such a beautiful, off the grid place to stay. The view of the stars at night was breathtaking. All the animals were so cute and friendly. Eric was a great host.
There is so much to do. There is a pool table, darts, horseshoes, badminton, cornhole, and more.
The outhouse, the kitchenette, and the outdoor showers are amazing. Such a fun experience! It’s definitely a must stay on the way to the Grand Canyon.

Staying here was a wonderful experience. The camper is adorable with plenty of space inside and a comfortable bed. The temperature at night was nice and cool with a breeze, so it was not difficult to fall asleep there in July. The hosts are lovely and friendly, and there is plenty of privacy near the camper. The outdoor shower is dreamy! The shower head is made from a watering can! So cute. The common space is lovely, too. Would absolutely stay here again!

Wow! What a surprise. We did a last minute booking to just try it and loved every minute of it. You have to read their description because it may not be for you. It’s off grid so don’t expect all the comforts you are used to. Dust, sun, communal living at its best. It’s def not for a one night thing - you must stay for a week- for the donkey, llama, alpaca, and the rooster. Fire pits are there, hammocks, billiard table, darts, and more. I wish we could stay longer. I had my 2yo, and 7yo and they both enjoyed the stay. They loved the animals, they met friends, and we even did rock paintings in the morning. Added plus is the amazing and fabulous hosts. First booking on hip camp and I am hooked.

Staying at The Nest is exactly what we were looking for with a great balance between camping & basic amenities like a bed, fresh water & a fire pit. The communal kitchen had more than we expected. The land was peaceful and maintained, and the animals add to the overall experience. The views of the sunset & the lunar eclipse were unmatched. We spent our days hiking Grand Canyon, & the drive there is not too bad, however that commute “door-to-door” is closer to 1 hr total each way if thats your plan. It gets really cold at night but there is a small heater inside which was another added bonus! The host’s directions provided for arriving are crucial & we were glad to arrive before dark. The vintage camper has charm & everything on-site has a DIY touch that’s appreciated. The farm fresh eggs were the cherry on top of this rustic, open land experience.
