Cheap Utah Glamping

Zion National Park, Utah.


1) Zion Glamping Adventures  

“The Best Overall Utah Glamping”

Location: Hildale, Utah 

Price: $125+ USD per night 

https://zionglampingadventures.com

I chose Zion Glamping Adventures as the overall best Utah glamping site as it is not only well-situated, well-equipped and comfortable, but it also offers affordable glamping experiences for groups of all sizes. The glamping tents are nestled in their own private canyon close to the majestic Zion National Park as well as other Utah landmarks, and each tent is cozy, well furnished and ultra private. Zion Glamping Adventures can even organized other tours and experiences for you, like jeep tours, cattle drives, hiking and so much more!

Guest review: “We had an awesome time here! Fred and Shane are both super awesome people, really friendly, and really accommodating. They are continuously adding new features to their campsite. They own the mountain side and sounds like they have some awesome plans for the future! By the sound of it there will be places for everyone to stay. We stayed in one of the tepees with a queen bed. There was a couch inside, a nice shady tree area outside, a grill, and your own private fire pit with chairs. They also have a communal area which was nice to sit by the fire and get to know the other guests This location is gorgeous, the views at night are really great. You can see every star in the sky. If you go right down the road there is a 2 hour hiking trail called Water Canyon Trail (if you do the full loop it is like 6 hours) at the mid point of the hike there is spring water coming out of the rocks that you can drink. Seriously the best water I have ever had, it is extremely refreshing. If you also take a 30 min drive you can see some really cool coral pink sand dunes. I suggest having Fred take you out on the 4-wheeler! It was a blast. The other huge plus is that this campsite is centrally located between Zion, Bryce, and the Grand Canyon. Zion is about an hour away, Bryce and hour and a half, and the Grand Canyon North Rim is about two hours. It is a really awesome spot to camp for several days and do day trips to each National Park.”

Did I mention the view of the stars? Seriously – this is a fantastic place to stay if you’re in the Escalante area. Worth every penny!” – Carver Family

The cabins are well set out and kept us nice and warm on a chilly night.
