Glamping Canyonlands is an off grid property with three 16.5 ft and one 23ft bell canvas tents. In this tent, guests will have spacious 16.5 ft bell tent and private decks, furnished with a 10" foam queen mattress fitted with bedding, seating for two, area rugs, end tables, LED candles, string lights, extra blankets, portable heater (bring own 1lb propane tank), board games, first aid kit, hand sanitizer, phone battery pack, lantern, lighter, deck chairs, picnic table and private firepit with grill top.
One of the things that makes Glamping Canyonlands so ideal is our location. We are at the middle point between Arches National Park/Moab and The Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. The Needles District of Canyonlands National Park will provide stunning scenery and sweeping vistas, world class hiking and climbing; and all this on the path less traveled and without heavy crowds. The ever-popular Arches/Moab area is also fantastic. Here the restaurants, shopping, mountain biking, arches, scenic wonders and fantastic cliffs justify the heavy crowds and faster pace. Regardless of your preferences, our glampground gives you the best opportunity to experience both of these awe-inspiring places!
Stretch your legs out after a long day of adventure and enjoy this spacious 16.5-footluxury bell tent. The deck and lounge chairs for this accommodation face the LaSal Mountains and offer sweeping vistas of sprawling desert scenery. While you get the best overall view from this tent, it does face the highway and lights from vehicles can be seen. After 11:00 pm the vehicle traffic and light slow dramatically
The closest tent neighbor you will have is approximately 50 yards away.
We have other tents with different views. If you would like a different view, please see our other listings.
You can check in anytime after 3pm. We have a self check in process in place for arrivals after 7pm. Once we know your estimated arrival time and if it's after 7pm, we will send you the details on how to check in.
How to get here -
Save the directions laid out! There is a good chance you won’t have service to reference this later.
*Type in Glamping Canyonlands and we will come up on Google.
*66 West UT-211 Monticello, UT 84535.
*We are just .5 miles or a couple minute drive as soon as you make the turn from HWY 191 onto HWY 211.
*Pull into the gravel parking lot on the right hand side. You will see “private property, private drive” signs.
*There is NO parking next to your tent. We need to keep traffic off the land to mend the damage done during construction.
*If coming after sunset, it will be dark and the gravel road, will come up quick! :)
*If arriving during daylight, almost immediately when entering HWY 211, you will see our canvas bell tents and a green building which is the bathroom.
*If arriving after dark, you may be able to see solar lights on the ground.
If coming from Moab, load your GPS or any other service related needs before leaving town. The drive to us is rural with no service.
If coming from Monticello, you will have service most of the way. However once you pass a sign called, Elk Meadows and a large beautiful cabin on the right, service will start to fade. By the time you make it down the large hill “Peters Hill”, you will no longer have service.
We do not have WIFI and service is limited.
Please, no shoes in the tent, especially on the carpets. There is a tray by the opening for your shoes.
To help move your luggage, there is a cart behind the bathroom for your use.
We have 2 very friendly dogs, Crow and Raven. If they are around, they will come say hi. Please keep an eye out for them when coming and going with your vehicle.
We have dogs but we do not allow other dogs to stay on property.
We recommend bringing your own drinking water. We haul water from town, but it is not the best tasting drinking water.
Please keep your tent zipped up. In the summertime we have moths and in the winter we have frost.
There is no insulation inside the tents so whatever the temperature is outside, it will be inside the tent as well. You can zip open the windows in the mornings if it gets too warm. Please zip them back up before you leave.
Desert nights are chilly. Beanies, warm socks and slippers are some of the things we suggest to keep yourself comfortable.
We do have propane heaters in the tents. They take the 16 ounce or 1 pound small green tanks. With the heat setting on low, one tank lasts around five hours; with the heat setting on high, one tank lasts around two hours. You can pick them up before you arrive or we always keep a small supply of tanks on site for $7.00 should you need them. If arriving after hours, let us know if you want to purchase and I will put them in your tent. We take cash or Venmo (keshia-joot)

French press coffee for 2 (Desert Sunset Tent, up to 4) is left outside your tent every morning around sunrise. If you do not want coffee, please let us know.

There is a communal off grid bathroom with hot running water for showers and a flushing toilet. This is shared with the camp so please be mindful of your time. Also, water is limited as we haul water from town so please be mindful of usage.
We would prefer our guests not smoke on the property but if you would like to, smoking is only allowed at the parking lot or inside your vehicle. Do not flick the cigarette butts onto the ground. Make sure they are completely out before discarding them. No smoking is allowed by the tents.
Bring a telescope if you have one as the night sky is one of the best features of this property! No obstructions so you will have clear views of the brilliant sky.
*We recommend downloading The SkyView Lite app and The Moon app. This will help you determine a full night of stairs or a full moon (weather permitting).
