Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are provided anytime of the day in the kitchen.

Attached to the kitchen are shaded picnic tables and 6 hammocks for everyone to use!

Desert nights are chilly. Beanies, warm socks and slippers are some of the things we suggest to keep you comfortable.


Propane heaters are in the tents. These won’t heat the space like in a home but just enough to take the chill out. Bring the 1lb green propane tanks if you would like to use this.

We were on the road for over a month, and this was definitely one of the best places we stayed! Keshia and Erik thought of absolutely everything and beyond; we can’t think of a single thing the place lacked. Super thoughtful space and beautifully decorated. So smart to offer propane (for indoor heaters on chilly desert nights) and firewood that can be purchased via Venmo or in person. The craftsmanship that went into details like the star gazing hammocks and swings were so great, we will absolutely never forget our stay! We were only able to stay for two nights, so next time we are in Utah (ASAP) we will 100% be booking and staying for a week as it is also the perfect central location for visiting National Parks like Canyonlands or Arches! Also the art supplies were such a fun touch and I definitely put them to use!

I don’t know what was better- the tent, the views or our hosts! Glamping canyonlands is set against an amazing backdrop with endless views and dark skies at night. It’s very easy to find and a great base camp for an adventure in Canyonlands. The communal kitchen has everything you need to cook your meals and the grocery store in Monticello isn’t far should you forget anything. I loved how spread out the tents were, the privacy, the coffee at sunrise and all the games in the tent. It was cold at night but we were provided with plenty of blankets to keep warm!

You will not find better hosts!
Keshia and Erik are the nicest, most attentive hosts in this amazing spot in the Canyonlands area. They work hard to maintain the property and are always adding new features, so this place just gets better and better!
The Desert Sunset Tent is the best glamping experience I have had. It comes with its own swings, hammocks, dining area, fire pit, and it is the largest tent on site.
Inside you will find the most comfortable bed with luxury down blankets and pillows, along with two more convertible chairs that provide two more beds. There are extra blankets, pillows, lots of games, and activities provided too.
On property there is a community kitchen area with everything you need to prepare your meals. Everything is kept very clean and organized. The bathroom and shower area, too are kept very clean. You will see the Keshia and Erik all around the property taking care of all of these needs. They are very hard working.
And finally, the location is a great spot. You are just outside the entrance to the Canyonlands. The Needles overlook is nearby. If you'd rather see some mountains and even enjoy a nearby lake, it's a short drive. The town of Monticello is nearby if need anything. Everything was perfect.
Thanks so much Erik and Keshia! We enjoyed ourselves very much!

This was my family's favorite spot on our two-week road trip. For a brief moment, we were home...better than home! The shower and bathroom were amazing. Worth every dollar, stay here if you can find a spot.

We will definitely stay here again soon.

Absolutely the greatest place to stay near Moab. It is close to everything and away from the intenseness of Moab. We spent time in Moab doing all the high intensity stuff and this was the best retreat at the end of the day.
Keshia has thought of EVERYTHING. Even non-campers would feel comfortable here.

A return trip to the Glamping Canyonlands has been added to my bucket list. We're a family of five and slept very comfortably in our tent. The bathroom/shower is clean, well maintained and smells wonderfully of sage. The hammocks made the sunrise coffee, incredible scenery and star gazing an absolute dream. Easy to get to and perfectly distanced from the pleasures and crowds of Moab. Keshia gave us some insider pro tips for adventure that was less travelled. I really only wish we would've stayed longer and that I could've taken advantage of the yoga session offered.

It was so great! We were on a long road trip and it was so rad how accommodating Keshia was!

Smores, coffee brought to you at dawn (wut), tons of amenities with a very clean shower/bathroom situation.

I’m NOT one to “glamp” and this was worth every penny. I’ll be back!

Wow what a treat! Staying on Keshia's property was a special experience. The large tent we stated in, (4 friends), was clean, comfortable, and awesome. The views from our site were stunning and the stars cannot be described with words. The shared bathroom and warm shower in the middle of the site (shared with a few other tents) is an engineering marvel.

I would definitely recommend glamping with Keshia.
