Located on 10 off-grid acres near the Kaibab National Forest, Grand Canyon Glamping invites you to be immersed in the serene landscape of our Northern Arizona property. This is the native land of the Hualapai, Havasupai, Hopi, and Dine people. Awarded "Best Hipcamp in Arizona" by Outside Magazine! On our mostly untouched hillside you can disconnect from the day-to-day hustle, see local wildlife, lie back in a hammock, and have the chance to interact with the land in its unaltered form. Our number one goal is sustainability and we have built everything man-made here with that in mind. This involves using reclaimed lumber as much as possible, not building with plastics or concrete, and collecting all of our power from the sun. We hope to provide the most comfort possible while keeping the land as close to how we found it as possible. Please respect the land while you are here and the land will take care of you! We started in 2019 with a piece of untouched, hilly land, and created a natural sanctuary for mindful retreats. We now have 3 glamping yurts open half the year, a tiny A-frame cabin which is open year round, a yoga deck, a sauna and cold tub, composting bathrooms and open-air hot showers, a picnic area, and more projects in the works. You're welcome to walk around exploring to see what animals you might see! We also offer 4-day yoga retreats which run most weekends from Friday through Monday. Yoga classes, guided hikes, Reiki, massage, or sauna use are available as add-ons for any guests! Glamping is a great option for first-time campers since you don't have to buy or bring any gear! Our yurts and tiny cabin are fully furnished with comfortable beds, solar power, lights, and lots of extra blankets for those chilly mountain nights! Some listings come with a camp stove and cooking gear, or you can ask about adding on Chef Zach's famous vegetarian breakfast!

Cozy A Frame Tiny Cabin with Sauna!
This trip was great for the most part! The hosts were pretty responsive to our needs & provided us with everything we could possibly need with clear cut instructions & videos. I was also impressed with the lack of rodents & pests considering you’re smack dab in the middle of wildlife. FYI: If you happen to book this listing in the winter, definitely make sure to bring your own additional source of heating.. The heat lamp that was supplied to us was not enough to keep us warm! Even with 3 layers of clothing on, we were still freezing!! The sauna was definitely a sweet spot for this trip & made the process smoother for sure.

Zach and Carrie were very nice and helped us out when needed, they were very communicative. The A-Frame cabin was very nice and cozy, with a great view. They provide some bedding but also recommended bringing sleeping bags, which we did bring were very glad we did.

Summer only
I reserved this site with a friend excited to sleep under the stars and for the unique experience. Unfortunately the weather turned colder (snowed) and the drafty "cabin" lacks insulation or any sort of decent door seal. The heater was unable to keep up with the low 20s temperature at night and we could see our breath, but not the stars as the side wall is a wavy plastic. Sadly the cold got us in the end and we decided to find more traditional lodging the next night. Lacking a 30 day notice we were not refunded. I would not recommend this site in October.

The yurt was beautiful and on the top of a hill with an amazing view. We enjoyed the fire pit at the base of the yurt. We used the wood burning stove sauna and cold plunge bath which were close to the yurt. Carrie was down to earth and amazing. Truly memorable.

The yurt is fantastic!
The yurt is super awesome! And the bed is actually comfortable. My husband is 6’2 and I’m 5’2 and we slept on it well. It was a bit of a challenge for him to go in and out of the tiny door, but other than that we loved it. It’s also nice that it’s at the top of the property so it’s the most private spot. Zach and Carrie have made this property a special place to be and we’re very welcoming. I wish we had been able to stay long enough to use the sauna and maybe do some yoga, , , next time!

Grand Canyon Glamping Huge Yurt
Yurt Heaven w/ Furry Friends 💙
The location and views were beautiful. The host was kind and gave a very comprehensive tour of the property and its amenities. They had a very cute information booklet with food, merch, and services you could buy/order, how they met, WiFi info (WiFi only available at the very front of property, little to no cell service) etc. The large yurt was super cozy and a nice change from all the hotels during our road trip. The mattress was extremely comfy and there were a ton of blankets available, which was perfect for the storm we got caught in during our stay. The floor inside of our yurt was a bit uneven and slanted, so I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone with mobility issues. Otherwise, everything was as advertised and very picturesque. We hope to visit again when the weather is a bit nicer, because it really was a relaxing location not too far from the Grand Canyon and other points of interest. Also, it’s dog friendly, which we were super grateful for.

Incredible what they have done with with their property. I loved my night there and enjoyed the peace that come with it. We would love to go back. If you are going to the Grand Canyon, this is only 45 minutes or so away and I highly recommend it

We enjoyed staying in the Juniper yurt on Zach and Carrie’s land. We had wild weather when we arrived, but Zach was able to help us navigate to our spot. The space and bathrooms were clean and well lit. The scenery was gorgeous and clearly well loved.

I loved my stay at the yurt. Zach and Carrie were very helpful and even though they were unable to greet us in person they sent a video with all the information that was very helpful and easy to follow. They are very eco friendly which was very cool and the other yurts were not too close to each other so you had your privacy. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

Didn’t end up staying at the site since they are strict about the checkin before 10pm and we couldn’t make it in time.

We absolutely loved our experience! The Yurt was well stocked and the bedding and towels were really comfortable. They thought of everything. We really go the feel of living sustainably and enjoyed our time in the great outdoors. The yoga, ice bath, sauna, and massage were really a treat. We even got our teenagers to partake in it all. The most incredible part was the guided hike of he Grand Canyon. We will be back again!

Great stay
Lovely set up, and very comfortable - and perfect for visiting the Grand Canyon. We had a really great stay at Zach & Carrie's. It was perfectly secluded, quiet, and the sky at night was stunning. We had the breakfast cooked one morning, and it was excellent, I would definitely recommend it. We haven't been camping in a while, and this was a good re-introduction. We traveled with our own camping pots and were able do our own basic cooking over the campfire. And the shower was great!

First time glamping
I’ve never done anything like this and based on the listing and other reviews I felt confident to tackle a night in the woods! The hosts were great and communicative, although if you have Verizon service is spotty. There were plenty of amenities but I just relaxed with my dogs in the peaceful quiet. The accommodations were cozy, clean and sustainable. I can’t wait to return with more time (and less nerves) and take full advantage of all the fun options they have to offer.

AMAZING VIEWS & Comfortable Stay
We absolutely enjoyed visiting this place! the views were AMAZING! The bed was so comfortable, and it was so lovely and quiet! Definitely recommend as a quiet, country setting to get away from noise and traffic - we were traveling a lot of long days on the road and this place was a perfect stop and retreat to rest!

I would highly recommend this spot for anyone looking to unwind and relax in nature. I spent the 4th of July here and had such a great time. Carrie was very hospitable and showed me around when I checked in + answered all my questions. I paid to use the sauna as a treat to myself and it was definitely worth it! The cabin itself was perfect for my dog and me. The sunrise in the morning is inexplainable. It was so beautiful to wake up and watch. If you're debating booking this spot, take this as your sign to do it!

My husband, I, and our three kids stayed here 4 nights. We visited the Grand Canyon, Slide Rock State Park, and Bearzona. This was a great base camp for all. Close to everything and easy driving. The Yurt was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We used the sauna one night and loved it. I would recommend this place.

I really loved Zach & Carrie’s property. You can tell how much love they put into their property and business. Really great people. I booked a tent site for the first time in my life by myself. I felt really comfortable and felt the site was perfect. I loved the beautiful views, starry skies. The semi outdoor shower was my favorite. I also booked a guided hike to Grand Canyon that Zach led. Really glad I had his guidance/knowledge of the park for my first time there. It was an amazing hike. I would definitely book another stay and would love to take advantage of the yurts if there was a next time!

Best Camping Experience!!
If you want to disconnect and just enjoy nature and beauty you will not be disappointed. This little A frame was perfect to meet up with my son and his dog . The beds are comfy. We kept the cabin open all night so we could just look up at the stars. Had access to an ice bath and sauna and the best hot outdoor shower I have ever experienced. The hosts Carrie and Zach share their love of nature and gifts of yoga and were easily accessible. I wouldn’t hesitate to return when I’m in the area.

Sleeping under the stars
My son and I enjoyed camping at the tent site. Zach (the owner) pointed us to a few spots that would be suitable for a tent. With clear skies, moderate temps, and mild wind, we felt comfortable sleeping under the stars without a tent and were rewarded with a beautiful night sky dome and two meteor sightings. The site is on a hillside and the ground has some large rocks, but is otherwise fine with a sleeping pad. The other sites were closer than I expected, but everyone was courteous. Visitor and highway noise was minimal and wasn't a problem. We purchased the breakfast add-on and enjoyed chatting with Carrie and Zach as we enjoyed his cooking. I would stay here again and rent one of the lodges (platform tents) if I were bringing my wife.

Absolutely breathtaking sunset and sunrise. an outdoor shower overlooking the mountains in the distance, a yoga studio/platform, a sink and toilets, fire pit, heater!!, blankets, pillows, towels, everything you need!

Super cute A-frame- not too far from the Grand Canyon. Zach and Carrie were great hosts and have a really cool set up. I would highly recommend adding on a sauna visit- just up the hill from the A-frame…especially if it’s cold outside. Check this place out if your looking to watch the sun rise in the morning, hike the Grand Canyon and then watch the stars shine at night!
