Come stay in our tipi located at the base of the red rock amphitheater in our peaceful little rustic campground. This tipi comfortably sleeps 6 people. We have 4 hammock cots and space for 2 sleeping on the ground. You will need to bring your own sleeping bags appropriate for the weather.
This IS the Wild, Rustic, Dirty Desert, not for Everyone. This is Camping, Not Glamping & Keep in mind this is a rugged camping experience not for the faint at heart. The desert is Hot in the summer and cold in the winter, the weather is Unpredictable and you May experience our Wild storms...these are real open top tipi's that do let a little rain in. You may hear coyotes, see spiders, experience the annoying desert gnats at certain times of the day during the hotter summer season. You will want to bring bug spray, if you forgot we do sell it in our camp store. If you stay with us you will get the experience of desert camping, wild, raw and rugged. It is an amazing experience to be had, with beautiful views and the feeling of freedom that is hard to find in your more civilized and populated locations.
The rocks nearby are kid friendly, great for climbing and taking amazing photo's. Fantastic views, and gorgeous sunsets.
There is a bathhouse with showers and flush toilets.
The Tipi will sleep 4 in cots & 2 extra in your own gear on the ground for a total of 6 guests. Parking is right next to the tipi.

The vibe at Tipi 2 at the Rocks
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We had a great stay in the tipi; you have a nice little spot to yourselves compared to the other sites. Though the cots were somewhat uncomfortable, especially for someone 6'7 with their feet hanging off.
Caleb was really helpful at the store and quickly responded to our messages. The place was super easy to find.
We wish they had a spigot so you could refill your water instead of buying theirs, but Caleb mentioned that you can do this for free just 10 minutes down the road at the Capitol Reef visitor centre.
Super easy to find. The signage was great.
Can't wait for the bathrooms to be upgraded this winter!
We climbed the rocks behind our site and watched the sunset; what more could you ask for?
Tipi 2 was absolutely adorable! I looked how it was nestled up next to the rocks. Even though there were other campers, the placement gave us privacy. I was also grateful to have access top toilets and a shower. Tent was very hot during the day, which the day was hot, but it cooled down at night. Also appreciated the picnic table and firepit at our site.
Really cool spot at the base of a rock outcropping just outside the entry to Canyonlands National Park. Beautiful views into the park, pretty sunrise and sunsets, and kids loved climbing around on the rocks. Hosts are very friendly and the little store has firewood and little extras for the stay. Will definitely come back to the Needles Outpost!
My husband, four kids, and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! It was a picturesque setting, with beautiful red rock mountain directly behind the tipi. Our kids were able to climb and play on the rocks. Our favorite part was climbing up and watching the sunset. The kids loved sleeping in the hammock style beds in the tipi. Amber was a great host - she called and texted me to make sure I knew how to get to the location and made sure I had everything I needed. She was very accommodating. I totally recommended this site, if you don't mind the sand. We will never forget this wonderful experience!
