This land has been in our family for four generations to graze our herd of sheep. We renovated our camps to provide a comfortable glamping space to those who want a one of a kind experience in the backcountry. One of our best features is the solitude and exposure to Mother Nature. Here, you won't find quiet hours, disruptive campers, or noise & light pollution. These sites provide the ultimate experience for those willing to go off the grid, off the main road, & into the backcountry. This space is where the tourist crowds disappear & the rugged, raw beauty appears. As the crow flies, the property is just over three miles from the east boundary of Zion National Park. This land is where our family calls home & has been in the Lundgren family for four generations & is still used for agriculture purposes today. In late May, we unload sheep to graze the nearby meadows and mid-to-late summer, cows roam the area adding to the uniqueness of the experience. This part of the country is home to textured red rock, blue skies, & numerous desert flora & fauna, making it an ideal spot for photographers. Some of the animals you might spot include owl, bear, mountain lion, bobcat, deer, coyote, turkey, snakes, lizards, as well as many different types of birds. There is very little light pollution making the night sky dazzling & unforgettable.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!

Zion Backcountry Sheep Camps
To be offered the chance to spend time on this land and in this way, simple but perfectly thought out, is a gift. It is a rare opportunity to feel really away from lights and intrusions. If you enjoy that kind of experience then make the effort to spend a little time at Jen's beautiful family camp. We came away very happy we had gotten to do so.

Tranquil Solitude
We loved staying at Jen's property for a two night stint. It's a bit of a long bumpy ride to get there but the destination is totally worth it. It genuinely feels like you're truly disconnected from the grind of daily life, surrounded by the sounds of nature and the dazzling stars at night. There are a ton of thoughtful touches throughout the property and it's very well appointed with plenty of options to prepare meals or to pass the time with games or by the campfire. The outdoor shower was also amazing! I highly recommend staying here and would love to visit again.

Zion Backcountry Sheep Camps
Extremely charming location and setup! This was the perfect place to luxuriate while still sort of “roughing it” after backpacking the Under the Rim Trail in Bryce Canyon. Loved the trailer. Loved the shower. LOVED the bathroom. Everything we needed was there. Highlights included watching the hummingbirds over breakfast and stargazing in the big meadow. Super easy to do a day trip to Zion (highly recommend riding a bike up the scenic drive). Jen was extremely responsive to an issue that came up due to user error. 10/10 highly recommend

Perfect relaxation
What an exquisite and extraordinary place. Everything was perfection. It is a long and bumpy road, but all the better for it. We were entirely at home and the facilities could not have been better appointed. I only regret I didn’t bring some coffee along with me because the site came equipped with a very nice gooseneck kettle, I would’ve loved to have used to make some pour over coffee.
