You can't get much more authentic and unique than spending a night under the stars in a sheep camp! These two were used as traditional sheep camps and would port to a new location each time the sheep were trailed to new pasture. Now that the sheep business has become more of a hobby for our family, we have converted the camps into a cozy home for others to experience.

You can't get much more authentic and unique than spending a night under the stars in a sheep camp! These two were used as traditional sheep camps and would port to a new location each time the sheep were trailed to new pasture. Now that the sheep business has become more of a hobby for our family, we have converted the camps into a cozy home for others to experience. 

The green camp sleeps two guests on one full-sized bed and the silver camp sleeps four guests on two full-sized beds. (There is also room for tents - please inquire.) The camps are in close proximity to one another located on private property about 8 miles into the backcountry of Zion National Park.

Whether you are a larger group (up to 6) or a single soul, make these camps home while you do all of your Southern Utah backcountry exploring!

This place was magical. The sheep camps had everything you could think of. The stay was so relaxing and anything I needed was already thought of. The location was beautiful and secluded. Jen was really helpful with any questions and the directions were great. I can’t wait to come back!

Beautiful view and a very thoughtful campsite. It had everything we needed—tons of firewood, supplies to roast s'mores and cook, multiple coffee makers—and more.

In the evenings we could see deer right from the campsite. It was amazing!

Wow! What an amazing place and an amazing host. The camp is so remote, you feel like and truly are miles away from anybody, let alone civilization. The sheep trailer we stayed in was so well preserved, very comfortable and welcoming. Best sleep of my trip, hands down.

Highlights -

The twinkly little solar lights that came on in the night to help you stay oriented at night without a lantern
The Outhouse with the pit toilet, which somehow smelled better than most places
Deer jumping through the marshy meadow - surreal

Full disclosure - my Honda Fit, with very little clearance, made it within 100 yards of the place before getting stuck in the mud on the property. We were stuck, nobody within miles, no cell reception. It's like the universe served me a little slice of humble pie for my birthday. We were able to hitch a ride to Zion Ponderosa and call Jen. She and her daughter drove an hour to pick us up, 30 minutes back to camp, and pulled out my dinky little car. Her kindness and generosity saved our trip, if not our lives :) Thank you, Jen.

I would not recommend driving a compact car with low clearance up the road to the sheep camps, especially at this time at the end of spring, where the dirt road hasn't been flattened out. Most importantly, once at the sheep camp DRIVE AROUND THE PUDDLE, and the adjoining ditch, or you may be stuck as we were. 4 wheel drive also recommended.

This place is amazing! The property is very remote and the stars are incredible. It's about a 40 minute drive from Zion National Park. You are on a dirt road for about 20 minutes of the ride(it's bumpy) but totally worth it! The cabins on the property are very nice and clean with so many amenities. They have all the cooking supplies you need including tableware, kitchen utensils, propane stove, cooler, tables, and bins for washing dishes. There's a picnic area, hammocks, seating around a fire pit- they even have games like corn hole! We loved our stay here and would totally go back! Jen was super friendly and responsive and leading up to our visit. She sent very detailed directions for us since there is no reception out there.
