Looking to embark on a glamping Grand Canyon adventure? You’re in the right place. I’ve curated a selection of the finest glamping spots in the area, and I‘ve broken down each one in this post. All you have to do is choose.
For the past six million years, the mighty Colorado River has been carving its way through the red and orange landscapes of picturesque Arizona. The result is an overwhelmingly expansive canyon, which has become the most revered of its kind.
Its name, of course, is the Grand Canyon, and it’s one of the Seven Natural Wonders of our world. Standing at it’s rim is akin to doing the same at the edge of the Earth. And no matter how many pictures you see or articles you read, you can’t capture its awe until you’re there in the flesh.
This kind of natural extravagance pairs perfectly with the glamping experience. And fortunately, there are some brilliant Grand Canyon Glamping, and here’s your guide!
Quick Breakdown of Grand Canyon Glamping Spots
In a hurry? Here are my top picks in a few key categories.
- Best Glamping in Arizona – Glamping in the High Desert – “The Kyo͞ob”
- Best Affordable Glamping in Grand Canyon – Vintage Desert Glamping
- Best Grand Canyon Yurt – Original Grand Canyon Yurt Camp Under The Stars #5
- Best Grand Canyon RV glamping – Off-Grid Solar Camping near GC w/AC and Heat
- Best Absolute Luxury Camping in Grand Canyon – Under Canvas Grand Canyon
I’ve included a bunch of useful, informative, and helpful videos about the Grand Canyon throughout the post. If you have a spare few moments, I highly suggest you check some of them out. They’ll help get you stoked and prepared for your trip to the canyon, and hopefully, bring a smile to your face!
Best Areas to Stay for a Visit to the Grand Canyon
- Grand Canyon National Park – If exploring the canyon is at the core of your trip, then staying inside the Grand Canyon National Park is ideal. It offers unparalleled proximity to the canyon. However, accommodation options are few and far between, and often booked up. Plus, more importantly, there are no glamping options here.
- Williams – For glamping options, you’ll have far more luck looking around Williams. Known as the gateway to Grand Canyon National Park, it’s a small city just south of the park. The heart of the city is around an hour’s drive from the canyon. But most of the glamping options lie closer to it.
- Valle – Valle is a tiny town of fewer than 1,000 residents. It’s about halfway between Williams and the canyon, and is surrounded by most of the top glamping spots. Most of the listings in this post state that they’re in Williams, but they’re usually closer to Valle.
17 Top Grand Canyon Glamping Options
Now for the main event. Here’s a list of the 17 finest glamping options near the Grand Canyon.
I made sure to include options at a variety of price points and styles, so there’s bound to be one that’ll suit you to a tee. These spots are the cream of the crop, so enjoy!
1) Glamping in the High Desert! “The Kyo͞ob”
Best Glamping in Arizona
Location: Page, Arizona
Price: $310 avg./night
Sleeps: 3 people (1 bed/1BR/1 bath)
This tiny architectural wonder is your home base for adventure, located 20 minutes south of Page, Arizona, 5 minutes from iconic Horseshoe Bend, and near to Grand Canyon National Park and several other breathtaking monuments and forests. The accommodation itself is chic, artsy, and comfortable, boasting a wood stove and king bed while allowing you to immerse yourself in nature as soon as you step out the door. The The Kyo͞ob is part of the Sash Dine’ EcoRetreat, and will surely make for an unforgettably marvelous experience.
Guest review: “This was the BEST Airbnb stay I’ve ever had! Pictures don’t do the space justice. It is so beautiful and was even better than expected. This is a space to relax and enjoy beauty in nature. Including the beautiful pieces inside. This isn’t a place to stay if you’re looking to be rowdy or careless. This place deserves care and actually made for more mindful experience there! The stars were INCREDIBLE from the Kyoob. It’s located super close to horseshoe bend which was perfect! Baya helped us with anything we needed. Couldn’t have asked for a better lodging experience. I would do it again in a heart beat.”
2) Glamping Experience That Provides Peace & Quiet – “Kaedoe”
Location: LeChee, Page, Arizona
Price: $150 avg./night
Sleeps: 6 people (4 bed/ 1BR/1 bath)

You certainly can’t beat the views here!
Guest review: “This is such a unique location conveniently located a short drive from Page, Lake Powell, Horseshoe Bend, and many other incredible attractions. We had such a great time glamping and taking in the magnificent landscape.”
3) Vintage Desert Glamping
Best Affordable Glamping in Grand Canyon
Location: Meadview, Arizona
Price: $52 avg./night
Sleeps: 2 people (1 BR/1 bath)
The Rambler is a quaint remodeled trailer, and at 40 minutes from the famous Skywalk, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better location for your Grand Canyon glamping experience! With all the comforts for a relaxing stay, sweeping views from your window, and easy access to both well-known as well as secret natural attractions (ask your hosts about the waterfall and natural spring!), this economical option is sure to please.
Guest review: “This cute trailer is set within amazing Joshua Trees everywhere and very close to the Grand Canyon Skywalk (30-40 minute drive). The onsite management were very friendly, helpful, and fast when our gas stove was out of gas. The shower worked well with hot water. There is an onsite office with some things you can buy and fresh coffee in the morning with a place to sit and gaze at the hillsides. Very quiet and safe.”
4) Traditional Navajo Earth/Log Hogan Cultural Experience
Location: Page, Arizona
Price: $210 avg./night
Sleeps: 4 people (4 beds/1 BR/1 bath)
This traditional Navajo dwelling is located 12 miles south of Page, Arizona, on the Sash Dine’ EcoRetreat and offers the most novel cultural experience on this entire list. Dubbed a “5 Billion Star Hotel” due to the absolutely stellar nighttime views, you’ll be immersed in nature with nearly zero light pollution around you.
Guest review: “I can’t imagine a better place to stay during a visit to Page. Baya and Paul’s place is incredible. The hogan was incredibly well made, the wood stove kept us warm, the hike to the ridge was beautiful, the stars were indescribable at night, and we just felt like we were actually away for a few days. The ranch is very close to Horseshoe Bend and Page. We can’t recommend this place--and Paul and Baya’s hospitality--highly enough!”
5) Invigorate – ‘Red Beauty’
Price: $114+ USD per night
Get off the grid and embrace the green lifestyle with this rustic safari tent. Set in Williams, around 30 minutes from the Canyon, this beauty offers everything you could want for a romantic getaway.
Catch a gentle breeze while lazing in the hammock, take a float in the outdoor tub, or kick back on the deck, drink in hand.
After a day of exploring, you can spark up the BBQ and embrace some desert tranquility. Then marvel at a star-filled sky before climbing into a cozy king-size bed. It doesn’t get much better than this.
Guest Review: “Such a fun stay! The tent was well furnished and the hosts were very helpful when we took a wrong turn! We missed the sunset but the sunrise view from the tent patio was beautiful!”
6) Original Grand Canyon Yurt Camp Under the Stars #5

These stylish yurts immerse visitors in comfort as well as natural beauty. You’ll be surrounded by an expansive Arizonian landscape topped with a vast sky. And just a 30-minute drive from the canyon.

Wake to freshly brewed beverages each morning and tuck into an included breakfast. Then return in the evenings for an optional home-cooked meal. You might even choose to get friendly with your neighbors around a campfire.
Guest Review: “Beautiful place. Amazing host. Very tasty dinner. Unforgettable experience. Thank you very much!!!”
7) Off-Grid Solar Camping near GC w/AC and Heat

You can stoke up a fire in the fire pit and relax in the outdoor shower. And out here, you’ll be blown away by the stars! I’d recommend bringing a professional camera so you can take some photos of the Milkyway Galaxy! Here’s a fun introduction to Astrophotography guide to get you started!
Guest Review: “We had a great stay at shayne’s camper. Everything was very clean, and as someone who has not stayed in a camper before Shayne was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had. He also provided helpful local tips as well. The stargazing at the camper was amazing”
8) Helix – The Skool Bus Near the Grand Canyon
Price: $71+ USD per night
Sleeping in a school bus might not sound like your idea of luxury. But this retro bus has been transformed into a cozy, wholesome little pad with a stellar design. Light-wood floors and ceilings, plus plenty of windows, make the space incredibly light and welcoming. You can lie in a queen-size bed and look out over the vast, empty landscape, terminating in snow-capped peaks.
Equally attractive views are available from the kitchen and dining table, as well as from the sleeper couch. And you can reach the Grand Canyon in a little over a half-hour.
Guest Review: “You’ll love it! Comfortable and isolated. Excellent view of sunset and stars. Located close to the Grand Canyon and convenient to bars and restaurants in Williams as well.”
9) Under Canvas Grand Canyon
Price: $379+ USD per night
When it comes to luxury glamping at the Grand Canyon, Under Canvas is a winning choice. The company offers exceptionally luxurious tents, albeit for a weighty price tag.
The tents come equipped with only the finest furniture and the most stylish interiors. Thin, light-wood beams support the smooth, cream-colored canvas, immersing visitors in beautiful spaces.
Many of them offer wood-burning stoves to keep you cozy, as well as stunning en-suite bathrooms. There are romantic options for couples, and spacious picks for families.
You can also get involved in camp activities, like yoga and hikes, and enjoy on-site meals.
10) Glamp Like a Pro in the Grand A-Frame!

If you’re after something slightly more solid than a tent, but still want to embrace the camping ambiance, then this stunning A-frame is for you. It’s small but stylish, and incredibly comfortable.
Melt into the memory foam mattresses and get some logs on the wood-burning stove to keep things toasty.
You can whip up some basic meals in the kitchenette, and pour a fresh, French-pressed cup of joe to get you energized for the day. The compost toilet and outdoor shower really hammer home the camping atmosphere, too.

11) Nomads Pad @ Grand Canyon: The Dreamer
Price: $106+ USD per night
Sometimes, we just need to turn off, tune in, and drop out, by escaping the complexities of modern life. Sound appealing? Dive into an unplugged adventure with this simple tent near Valle.
The lack of electricity and running water pushes visitors to embrace the tranquility of nature and human company. But not without some creature comforts; you’ll be able to flop onto a queen-size bed to get some quality shut-eye.
Hang in the hammock and gaze at the stars, or get swallowed up by a good book. This is glamping at its rawest.
Guest Review: “The tent was exactly as pictured in the photos! The bed was comfortable and the site had everything we needed. Victor and Jenny were great hosts and quick to reply to our questions.”
12) The Love Shack
Price: $93+ USD per night
There are few things in life as cool as a retro camper van – particularly if they’re set up as well as this one.
It’s a 1962 Red Dale Camper set on a secluded patch of Arizonian wonderland. It may be small, but the space is gorgeous. The interior embraces the retro vibes with funky finishings and plenty to keep you comfortable.
A wood stove keeps the camper warm, and the outdoor fire pit is perfect for glorious desert evenings. There’s even a luxurious outdoor bathhouse with see-through ceilings.
Guest Review: “The Love Shack is the perfect way to experience Arizona in the coziest camper. The land is beautiful and the sunsets will be unforgettable. Most accommodating hosts. We were very happy with our stay.”

Price: $87+ USD per night
This eco-yurt is set on a more lush, wooded patch of land than most others in Arizona. You’ll be sleeping amid the trees and beneath a starry sky, only separated by a thin piece of canvas. But comfort won’t be an issue; the queen size floor bed will keep you smiling and snoozing soundly.
Soak in some sun-heated water in the outdoor shower or wind down in the yoga shala. You’ll have access to the full 10 acres of land and feel a deep sense of seclusion. Yet you’ll be able to reach the Grand Canyon in under 45 minutes.
Guest Review: “Perfect getaway to disconnect from the world. You could see that Zack and Carrie take good care of this place.

Price: $250+ USD per night
Visiting the canyon with the whole gang? Or your full family, aunts and all? This eight-sleeper mega-yurt will accommodate you and your group in style. It’s an enormous dome, housing four double beds, a wood-burning stove, a cooker, a refrigerator, and plenty of plants.
The bean bags are perfect for afternoon lounging, as are the comfy sofas. And on warmer days, you can hang out on the enormous wooden deck. This place is well-designed, airy, and affordable for its size. Not to mention 40 minutes from the Grand Canyon.
Guest Review: “We had a blast spending the night at this magical spot. We watched a storm roll in and enjoyed a rainbow outside + a wonderful sunset view. The deck was perfect to enjoy the stars…they are breathtaking. This was the best pit stop after visiting the Grand Canyon.”
15) **The Ultimate Stargazing Experience for Two #2**
Price: $191+ USD per night
You’ve probably realized by now that starry skies are one of Arizona’s desert specialties. So much of the land surrounding the canyon is secluded, showing off the true beauty of our night sky.
But not many places offer you the chance to sleep with this sky in full view. This dome house boasts a clear, bubble-like roof, so you can truly sleep beneath the stars. It’s a surreal experience, sinking into a memory foam bed while connecting with the outside world.
Don’t forget to hang out by the fire pit and make the most of the outdoor shower.

17) Grand Canyon Equipment Rental – Tent, Camp Kitchen
Location: You decide
Price: $56+ USD per night
Ok, it isn’t technically glamping, but this setup could offer you the most rewarding experience of all. It’s a comprehensive camping kit that you can rent out and set up on a campsite of your choosing.
Why is that appealing? Because there are some incredible campsites right inside the Grand Canyon National Park. So you can camp out just a short stroll from either rim. You can even camp inside the canyon if you have the right permits.
This Grand Canyon tent camping option immerses you in the very attraction you’re there to visit, so it’s certainly worth considering.

The warm, outdoor shower and compost toilet are just around the back and the South Rim is only 40 minutes away.
Guest Review: “Best yurt we have stayed in. Amenities were well cared for, owners came by to greet us and make sure we were all set, comfortable and gorgeous location.”
20) Glamp Like a Pro in the Lotus Yurt
Price: $161+ USD per night
The Lotus Yurt offers quintessential glamping and incredible mountain views. The memory foam bed will swallow you up and the chic decor will inspire positive vibes.
There’s a tiny kitchen area where you can cook some basics and brew your morning drinks. As well as a beautiful outdoor shower. Solar panels provide a trickle of charge to keep you going, but there’s no WiFi. So take the opportunity to switch off and enjoy the wonders of nature.
