Southern Utah has a special draw for anyone looking for adventure. Whether it’s the secret slot canyons, red hoodoos, or brazen night sky, this area of the Beehive State attracts outdoor lovers from all over world all year long.
Utah camping options go way beyond the tent and RV.
With so many visitors coming to this beautiful area, some traditional campgrounds (especially in the national parks) can fill up quickly with tents, RVs, and other personal rigs. My husband and I recently returned from this part of Utah and were lucky to find a camping site in a state park, but other parks fill up very quickly.
Many Utah state parks offer Tentrr bunk tents.
What we did notice was that Utah fully embraces alternative camping options such as glamping, tent rentals, RV and van rentals, and camping cabins. Nearly every small village or larger town had options for visitors who may not be able to bring and park their own rig.
Yonder Escalante ratchets up glamping options with comfortable cabins.
Many state parks have put aside spots for Tentrr glamping tents. Private companies such as Under Canvas Zion and Under Canvas Moab have canvas bell tents ready for rent. Locations such as Yonder Escalante have both cabins and Airstreams conveniently available right outside of national monuments. There’s no need to tow your own trailer or pitch a tent.
The state of Utah has listings of glamping and alternative camping options. Pioneer wagon camping, anyone?
The state of Utah makes searching for these types of places to stay a breeze. Check out the Utah.gov site for Tentrr tents as well as wagons and teepees in state parks and Visit Utah for more camping and glamping destinations.
