Staying in a TIPI is sort of like camping (but more comfortable), below you can read about what we provide and the basic items we recommend you have with you during your stay (not all are required, we leave that up to you to determine).
1. We provide 4 deluxe sleeping cots, two backrest chairs, colorful Southwestern style wool pillows, and colorful wool floor rugs. You need to bring a SLEEPING BAG or a good blanket (and a pillow if you need). However if you do not have a sleeping bag there are 6 communal sleeping bags you may use. NOTE: the propane fire pit shown in some of you older photos has been removed by the local County Building Inspector, it's unsafe in their opinion.
2. There's no water on site so you’ll need to bring your own drinking water. We suggest buying a gallon or 2 at a grocery store, you can use it to drink and wash your hands.
3. There's no shower, bring a wash cloth and use your water to wipe down if you feel dusty and dirty after hiking all day.
NOTE: SHOWERS are available at the nearby Red Canyon Campground on Highway 12, about a ten-minute drive from our TIPI site. They are "pay" showers requiring coins (quarters), but the facilities are clean and well maintained and there are parking spaces near the shower building. The cost is $2.50 for eight minutes. The showers require quarters. There is a change machine on site that accepts $1 or $5 bills.
4. There's no electricity onsite so, a portable battery charger for re-charging your phone is good to have. The solar powered camp light we provided does have one USB charging port, it works at night as long as it gets a good charge during the day.
5. We provide a solar powered light but it's not a bad idea to bring a small flashlight of your own because it is pitch dark at night if the moon is not out.
6. If you plan to grill, there's a small charcoal grill which we provide but you need to bring charcoal, a long stem lighter, and starter fluid.
7. If you want to burn a fire in the fire pit you'll need to buy fire wood (most stores here sell wood), bring some newspaper to get it started easily. The fire pit area is shared between guests so there could be some burning materials left behind but it's hard to say for sure.
8. Bring a trash bag, you'll need to haul your trash out with you when you leave. Local garbage dumpsters are located 3 miles South just before the town of Hatch. Turn right onto the gravel road just after you see the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary billboard.
There's an outhouse bathroom onsite, don't forget to bring a roll of toilet paper and hand sanitizer, or baby wipes. We provide those things as a backup in case you forget them or run out, but please don't rely on it, bring your own.

* There's no cleaning fee when you rent our TIPI because cleaning and tidying up is your responsibility before you leave.
* Be aware we'll be requesting the next guest staying after you informs us if the place was NOT left in good condition and the same goes for when you arrive, let us know if the previous guest did not leave things in good condition for you. If we don't hear from you then we'll assume everything was in good condition when you arrived.
ABOUT US, YOUR HOSTS: Brant and Gen. We live in Hawaii most of the time however Brant's Mom Jeannie and her husband David live on the adjacent lot, they will be your local hosts should any issue arise during your stay. We are always available to you via email, text, and phone.
OTHER INFO: Hatch (4 miles South) and Panguitch (7 miles North) are the closet towns. Both offer great places to eat and some unique shopping stores. Panguitch has several places we like to eat at, C-Stop Pizza, Cowboys Smokehouse, and Kenny Ray's. Note many local businesses are closed on Sundays and many restaurants close before 9pm. Major retail stores like Walmart are in Cedar City about 1 hour away.
Into fishing? About 7 miles South of our place along Hwy 89, Mammoth and Asay Creek are the head-water streams of the Sevier River. Asay Creek is designated as a Blue-Ribbon Stream, and Mammoth should be as well. Both streams have large fish populations and are easily accessed. There is over seven miles of public access on Mammoth Creek and several miles of access on Asay as well. Both streams are home to brown trout, with some rainbows in Asay, along with mountain white fish. Make sure you get a permit.
That about covers it, please let us know if any questions come to mind.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The tipi site was above our expectations. It’s new (or at least it looks like new), clean, and private. The only neighbors you will have are from the second tipi. The site is located on a hill, above the scenic highway 89 so you won’t be bothered. Great view at the mountains where Bryce and Red canyons are located. Lots of canyons around.
We came there in September, it was 48F outside at night. Tipi has a propan fire pit , but it was still cold. We would have been frozen if we hadn’t brought warm clothes and super warm sleeping bags.
Sadly. I had a car breakdown about twenty minutes from the site that required a tow truck to a nearby city and was unable to make it to the site for my stay. I did however have the vehicle fixed the next day and did drive by it and saw how pretty it was from a distance! The host was very friendly but besides that I can’t give much more of a review.
Une soirée et une nuit magnifique, presque à la belle étoile. Tout le matériel nécessaire pour faire un feu était présent ainsi que les lumières solaires. Le chauffage d’appoint au gaz fut très appréciable pour la nuit et nous a tenu bien chaud. Lit de camp au confort sommaire, toilette cabane et pas de douche, cela n’empêchant pas la féerie du lieu. Le ciel étoilé est sublime. Le campement est exceptionnel et les Tipi magnifique, comme sur la photo. Nous avons passés un moment magique ! Je conseil pour 1 nuit. Merci
Amazing tipi experience
We absolutely loved our night in the tipi. So relaxing, amazing views, plenty of necessities and a clean porta potty. Highly recommend for more than one night!!!
This experience was absolutely amazing. Brant is an excellent host and very responsive and helpful. We stayed mid october and the weather was quite cold but there was plenty of blankets and we snuggled up. I would highly recommend this stay to anyone looking for some solitude and a different experience. Thanks Brant!
