Overview 

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!We take the “rough’n it” out of the camping equation, outfitting our guests with a luxury off-grid camping experience. Guests will have spacious 16.5 ft bell tent and private decks, furnished with queen-sized beds fitted with bedding, seating for two, area rugs, end tables and LED candles . Enjoy the comforts of modern living while taking advantage of the great outdoors.

Stretch your legs out after a long day of adventure and enjoy this spacious 16.5-foot luxury bell tent. The deck and lounge chairs for this accommodation face west towards the sunset. This is also the most private tent in the glampground, offering the least light pollution which makes evening stargazing the best on the property.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.

Temperature, Weather & Electricity

We do not have electricity. We will, however, provide you with 1 quick charging battery pack to charge your phones, free of charge. For lighting you will be equipped with battery operated candles, string lights and battery operated lantern to help move around and walk to the bathhouse at night.

We do not have WIFI but depending on your carrier, you may experience little signal but please come with the expectation that you will not have any or very poor signal. If you really do need to connect to share those amazing Canyonland photos, the small town of Monticello is just 15 minutes away.

In the summertime, tents get very warm, even hot during the day. Fortunately, temperatures in the desert drop quickly as evening settles in. Just about everyone staying with Glamping Canyonlands will be out exploring the National Parks and surrounding area, so heat in the day usually is a non-factor. But if you plan of lounging around in the summer afternoon, be prepared to be on the warm side!In the winter, daytime temperatures are ideal for sports such as hiking, climbing, mountain biking, etc. But evening can get cold! We provide extra blankets to help with the temperatures, but it is important to know what to expect.

We have a communal fire pit and provide wood for it. However, if there are County or State fire bans, we must adhere to them.

Inside your tent you will find a fire extinguisher to be used in the case of an emergency. If you are not familiar with using one, please read the directions or talk to your hosts for more information.Please, please, please do not ever flick cigarette or cigar butts into the dry desert grasses. The consequences could be dire! Furthermore, until we can establish a Fire Department approved designated smoking area, smoking will need to be done in the parking lot or in your personal vehicle. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Bathhouse & Communal Kitchen

There is a bathhouse with 1 toilet room and 1 shower room for our guests to share. You will have flushing toilets and running hot showers. We do provide you with towels, hand soap and toilet paper.

PLEASE BE AWARE - KITCHEN MAY NOT BE READY BY OCTOBER 9TH. We have a communal cooking area located by the bathhouse with basic cookware, cooking utensils, cutlery. You must bring your own oil, seasoning, etc. This is a very simple and basic set up. It does have a sink with a jug for water and a propane cooker top. This space is not equipped with a fridge as we do not have power for one. Please keep this in mind when getting groceries. **ALSO, please note the grocery store is closed on Sundays along with most businesses in Monticello.

Water - please bring your own drinking water 

Many of us are so used (and lucky) have water whenever we want it that we kind of don't even think about water usage. At Glamping Canyonlands, we do not have running water on the property. We have to haul water a few times a week from the town of Monticello. We have 2-50 gallon water tanks that we will fill the shower and toilets with. We ask our guests to be very mindful of their water usage. We do live in the desert so water conservation is already very important. It is very common for people who live in the desert or without access to a well, to haul their own water.

Glamping in the desert makes drinking water an important commodity. We do not provide bottles of water for two primary reason: sustainability and landfill. At Glamping Canyonlands, you will need to bring your own water. It would make us happy if you brought water in refillable containers that will not end up in the landfill or upon islands of floating plastic in the ocean. The canyon country surrounding our property is stunning! But it is important to stay hydrated to fully enjoy all the beauty. We recommend everyone drink at least one gallon of water per day when hiking or engaging in physical activities. Please be prepared!

Pets

We have 2 black lab mixes who are super friendly and sometimes shy. They may come say hi if we are around working and cleaning.

We do not allow pets at the moment. The tents have proven to be extremely difficult to remove dog hair. We do not want to risk leaving hairs behind for the next guest. Once we have cabins and yurts, we will allow your furry babies to stay. 

Parking

Parking is located on the gravel road that you drive on to enter our property. Please only keep your car on the gravel road. Our soil is VERY sandy and many vehicles can get stuck in it. Just keep on the gravel and you'll be fine.

Additional Guest

One additional guest can be accommodated with bedded cots for an additional $10 per person, per night.

Night Sky

One of the best features of our property is the stunning night sky. The Milky Way can be seen on most nights so bring your telescope if you have one! Stargazing from the decks is a must!

Hosts

Your hosts do live on the property and will be available to you. As we continue to grow and make improvements, we will actively be around, building and creating.  There usually is some highway noise from HWY 191 but around 11pm it almost disappears.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

We stayed for two nights at Glamping Canyonlands, and I'd readily recommend it to anyone looking for a stay near the Needles side of Canyonlands National Park, which is a close drive down the road. The tents were spacious and thoughtfully decorated, and the hosts were very welcoming. We loved waking up to beautiful sunrises in the high desert and witnessing the incredible show of stars and planets at night. It's located near the road and easy to find. The area around Monticello and Moab has spotty coverage, so I'd recommend downloading an offline map via Google before you leave.

This place was beyond our expectations! Keisha and her husband were wonderful hosts, they even built us a fire to watch the stars and brought us fresh coffee super early in the morning! Their spaces are beautiful and very thought out with nice touches that add to the ambiance - I can’t wait to see it when it’s 100% complete! You should definitely put this on your list of places to stay, I can’t wait to come back ❤️
