Upon researching, there are some pretty insane Airbnbs in Utah, from condos with rock climbing walls to one with slides running off the balcony. But we’re zeroing in on magnificent tents and outdoor-oriented wonders that make for an unforgettable night amongst Utah’s signature red rock territory and the vibrant night sky. Ready to go glamping in outrageously scenic destinations in Utah? These little slices of paradise won’t disappoint.
Experiencing the stars without obstruction is possible, from the comfy bed of the simplistic, eco-friendly designed cabin. A wall of the a-frame structure lifts up to reveal the open air of Zion nature. Guests can also take in the southern portion of this special part of Utah, from the part observation deck, part dining space. Solar energy powers the structure.
Half cabin half tent, this A-frame structure’s wall flips outward to mesh the elements with your cozy lodging space. Truly off the grid living, but in style, you have to hike over a ravine from your car to get here. Within the vicinity is a wildflower meadow with lounge chairs and a telescope for unparalleled stargazing, and outside of the hut, you’ll find a block of ice and s’mores supplies. Homemade vegan marshmallows can even be requested in advance!
Located at the mouth of Providence Canyon, you’ll find this glamping tent with a creek right outside the door. The tent comes with a king-size bed, outdoor propane fire pit, mini-fridge, sawdust composting toilet, phone charging ports, and electric water pump sink. No shower is available. There are some great hiking and biking trails in this area to explore, but be mindful of the fact that four-wheelers and dirt bikes can make the area a little loud on weekends.
You can only camp at this mountain overlooking yurt during the warmer months, and it can sleep a whopping 11 guests at once! Beds are plush and comfy, a wood-burning stove is located inside, and an outdoor patio overlooking grand views is the perfect spot to fire up the grill. A fire pit surrounded by sturdy benches is steps away, welcoming tired hikers to wind down after a day of exploring the memorable landscapes in Zion National Park.
Utah isn’t known for its beaches, but you can have a beach experience when you book this Airbnb tent at Yuba Lake. It is a glamping tent for two people and that comes with a queen-size bed. There are flush toilets and a shower nearby that you can use. Cook s’mores over an open fire, get some sun on the dock, and rent out kayaks, paddleboards, and jet skis during your stay. This property also has three other glamping tents, a camping trailer, and an Airstream trailer available to rent.
Four people can stay in this Virgin, Utah tent that is part of Open Sky Zion. It is a high-luxury, exclusive camp with safari-style dwellings. The campsites have electricity, heat, air conditioning, and comfortable beds. There is also a private indoor bathroom with shower and tub that you can use, as well as a stargazing observatory, wrap-around deck, and grill. The tent is on an 80-acre property that is on the west side of Zion National Park. The camps are spread far enough apart to give you plenty of privacy.
This adorable teardrop camper is perfectly suited for one or two people and has a queen-size bed inside. You can immerse yourself into the nature of the red rocks of Moab while still being cozy and comfortable inside this rental. There is an outdoor kitchen that you can use and that is just off the back of the camper. The owner also provides you with camp chairs, a cooler, headlamps, camp rugs, trash can, solar power, and USB charging ports. The owner will deliver the teardrop trailer to your campsite, but you’ll need to figure out your own shower situation because the camper does not have one. Pets are allowed for a $35 fee.
You’ll enjoy views of the red rock cliffs and the Sevier River when you book this private studio yurt on Airbnb. It sleeps two people and comes with a queen-size bed, full bathroom, and washer/dryer. The yurt is right off of Highway 89 and situated on 14 acres surrounded by BLM land. It’s in a central location where you can visit lots of local attractions, including Zion National Park, Kodachrome Basin State Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Kanab. You’ll be in one of three separate yurts on the property.
Nestled within Navajo sandstone in The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, is a cave that features a kitchen, bedrooms, baths and balconies. Teetering on the edge of not really roughing it in any sense of the word, the escape still sets deep within nature and takes a serious off-road vehicle to tackle the terrain on the drive in—you’ll even go through a river. So getting here and staying here is equally exciting, and the roused off walls and abundance of stone strongly give off natural cane vibes.
Looking for a disconnected getaway between Monte Cristo and Hardware Ranch? You’ve found it. Located amongst wildlife and lots of outdoor “play” space, the warm, ambient little yurt can sleep a bundle of friends ready for an adventure in nature. The yurt is an ideal base for ATV, snowshoeing and cross country trips.
Two adventurous travelers can enjoy staying in this tent for a glamping trip on Crooked Bindi Ranch. It is one of two luxury tents on a property that are about 70 yards from each other. However, each tent has its own private restroom and is spacious and private. You’ll be right among the red rock landscapes but still have the comforts of home, such as a hot shower and flush toilet.
Here’s a cozy yurt for up to eight people that you can rent in Utah. This Airbnb property is dog-friendly and 20 feet in diameter. It is tucked in among aspen, pine, and juniper trees at 8,300 feet elevation. You can stay here in the winter and enjoy skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding from the yurt…but only if you’re up for a two-mile hike from the parking area in the winter! In other seasons, a 4WD/AWD drive vehicle is recommended to drive right up to it. The bathroom is an outhouse, and you’ll need to bring your own water because there is no running water at the yurt.
It’s fun to stay in a vintage Airstream during your Utah travels, especially one that is in a beautiful desert setting at a tiny house resort. This Airbnb rental sleeps up to four people and has a sofa bed and a double bed. It also has a bathroom with an RV toilet and small shower/tub. Unlimited water and electricity are available because the camper is hooked up to utilities. This 1969 camper has a lot of character and is a little rough around the edges, but that’s just part of the adventure. Other amenities offered are a mini-fridge, microwave, sink, hot plate, and Wi-Fi. Pets are allowed to stay here with you.
Here’s a 24-foot yurt that sleeps eight guests in a queen-size bed, two queen futons, and one bunk bed. The host provides bedding for just the queen-size bed, but you’ll need to bring your own bedding or pay an additional fee for the other beds. Guests use the shower house outside the yurt, which has a large shower, toilet and sink. Modern amenities include Wi-Fi, satellite TV, and air conditioning. You can cook outside here on the propane stove, charcoal grill, and by using the water faucet nearby. This property has a yurt, three cabins, and a tipi, which you can fully rent out if you have a large group.
These tents are huge and feature warm wood floors and lantern lighting. Electricity inside is provided via solar panels, adding to the convenience. Although you’ll have plenty of your own space amongst the desert mountain terrain, there are common ground facilities like a “bad weather hang out area,” kitchen, super nice bathrooms and more. If you’re a socialite, Basecamp 37° is a great place to mingle with other adventurists.
You can also rent a traditional Conestoga wagon that will take you back to the pioneer days. It sleeps six with its king bed and two sets of bunk beds against the walls. But you won’t really be living like those out on the range, because there are outlets to charge your iPhone and other electronics. You get all the same amenities like pool access, hearty country breakfast and panoramic views. The wagon is super cozy and an absolutely fitting way to glamp in some of Utah’s most beautiful areas.
Now for the mother of them all, a scenic slice of land housing multiple sleeping wagons and the most luxurious tents, known as Conestoga Glamping Ranch Resort. The seasonal retreat is a summer haven with authentic wagons and upgraded suite tents that offer their own bathrooms, private bars, a deck with fire pit and an overall “royalty treatment feel”. A nearby city allows guests to venture to great places to eat and shop. But why would you eat out when there’s an onsite, open-air restaurant serving craft booze and Dutch oven delicacies? Bear Lake is the showstopper of it all and is known as the “Caribbean of the Rockies” because of its electric aqua waters.
