RUNNING DEER TIPI
Is a 20ft. tent-like canvas structure that can sleep up to 4 people. There are three tipis situated at the tipi site and each has its own parking space, picnic bench with a small barbecue grill, and an outhouse. Each tipi sits on a floating wood deck and the tipis are spaced approximately 300ft. away from each other. This tipi comes equipped with four sleeping cots, two backrest chairs, Southwestern style throw pillows, and colorful wool floor rugs. There are six communal sleeping bags (washed at the start of each season), a Communal Bin (items that other guests have left behind to share with you), and an Aloha Bin (items for your use during your stay, i.e. flashlights, lantern, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, etc.).
LOCATION TO TIPI SITE
The driveway to the tipi site is located directly off of Highway 89 and is conveniently located near many popular parks, biking trails, and hikes, which include Bryce Canyon National Park (30 min. drive) and Zion National Park (1-hour drive). Situated directly across the tipi site are miles of ranch land and the Sevier River. The tipi site sits on a hilltop with spectacular 360˚views on a private 13-acre property. It's a great place for couples, families, friends, and solo travelers. You’ll enjoy the bold beauty of the Red Rock Cliffs and the soothing Sevier River. Sit, sing, and tell stories at the communal fire pit–you might even make a few new friends! If you’re lucky during your stay, you might see a herd of antelope roam across the land and see the most amazing starlit skies at night.
LETTING YOU KNOW UPFRONT
Before you book your stay, please keep in mind that the tipi experience is very similar to camping; it is in nature and there is NO WATER OR ELECTRICITY anywhere on the property. The structure of the tipi is made of wooden poles and canvas walls. You will hear noises from the tipi flapping in the wind, wildlife, and vehicles passing by on Highway 89. The tipi and the tipi site is NOT SECURED; you are camping at your own risk. The tipis do not have doors, so they cannot be locked – valuables should never be left inside the tipi. During summertime there can be many FIELD MICE roaming in and out of the tipis; in an effort to prevent infestation, poisonous bait is placed under the tipi decks. LOW TEMPERATURES: Nighttime temperatures can drop as low as, 20˚F in April/October; 30˚F in May/September; and 40˚F in June/July/August).
WHAT TO EXPECT & PLAN FOR
Upon your arrival, be sure you are checking into the correct tipi–each tipi has a wooden signpost. The guest manual will provide you with the check-in/check-out process, contact information, and recommended places to hike and eat. A link to the check-in video will be sent a week prior to your stay.
NO WATER – There is no running water, no showers, and no drinking water at the tipi site. Public showers might be open for public use at the Red Canyon Campground or Bryce Canyon General Store (please contact these facilities to verify before heading over).
NO ELECTRICITY – There is no electricity at the tipi site. Plan to bring your own portable solar-powered charger or generator if you need electricity for your electronics or to recharge batteries. We provide a solar-powered lantern, which has a USB port; however, we suggest bringing your own lantern and/or flashlight because it gets really dark at night.
CELLULAR SIGNAL – Onsite signal is strong because there's a cell tower on the distant mountain peak. If you have a 4G data plan speeds are good.
CONTROLLING FIELD MICE – Poisonous bait is placed under the tipi decks to try to prevent infestation; be sure that your children or pets do not go underneath the tipi decks and eat any of the green/blue poisonous bait. Please keep all food and beverages concealed and if possible, eat outside of the tipi.
LIMITED SUPPLIES – Outside your tipi, you’ll find a small barbecue grill (bring your own charcoal, lighter fluid, and lighter) and an outhouse (bring your own toilet paper). Guests must bring their own blankets/sleeping bags for warmth, but you are welcomed to use the communal sleeping bags and pillows.
COMMUNAL FIRE PIT – All visitors at the tipi site share the communal fire pit. We do not provide firewood. You can purchase firewood stacks from local grocery or convenience stores within the area.
PACK IT IN & PACK IT OUT – There are no trashcans or dumpster bins onsite. Please bring your own trash bags, as you will need to haul out your trash when you leave (see the guest manual for directions to the local dumpster).
KEEP IT CLEAN & TIDY – There is no cleaning fee because each guest is responsible for cleaning and tidying up before they check out and leave the premises. Upon check-in please contact the host immediately if the previous guest did not leave the tipi in good condition

The tipi overlooking the vast wilderness was such a unique and incredible experience! A 20 min drive outside of Bryce Canyon made it the ideal location for our road trip and provided a cozy, relaxing environment after getting rained on in Bryce. Would absolutely come back with friends!
