A reimagined outdoor lodging experience in Southern Utah, featuring Airstreams, modern cabins and RV camping sites on the grounds of an old drive-in movie theater. Yonder provides easy access to Bryce Canyon, Escalante, and Capitol Reef.
Located along scenic Highway 12 near Bryce Canyon National Park and within Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Yonder Escalante embodies memories of the Great American West.
The property features 10 custom Airstreams, 23 modern cabins and 60 RV camping sites with full hook-up. The accommodations provide unobstructed 360-degree views of surrounding cliffs and terraces. Residing in the former location of the Shooting Star RV Park, Yonder includes 2,000 square feet of communal space and an Anacapa Architects-designed clubhouse and bathhouse, general store, drive-in movie theater, resort pool, spa quality hot tub and bonfire pits.
Every experience within the park is distinctive: drive-in movies watched from the comfort of a restored classic car, dinner cooked over an open fire with a Yonder crafted BBQ kit and complimentary s'mores roasted in the glow of nightly bonfires under the stars that illuminate the Southern Utah desert sky. The centralized clubhouse offers a collection of vinyl records, books and board games, while the general store is stocked with provisions and sundries. Within the region, visitors can enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing and more.
Yonder is a roughly 5-hour drive from Salt Lake City and Las Vegas and a 7.5-hour drive from Phoenix. To make a reservation, visit stayyonder.com or call (435) 826-4440.

Bryce Canyon National Park
An alpine forest with as many red rock hoodoos as trees. At dawn and dusk, mule deer graze the forested plateau along the road into Bryce Canyon.
Capitol Reef National Park
Even considering Utah’s many impressive national parks and monuments, it is difficult to rival Capitol Reef National Park’s sense of expansiveness, of broad, sweeping vistas, of a tortured, twisted, seemingly endless landscape, or of limitless sky and desert rock.
The Devils Garden Outstanding Natural Area is a miniature wonderland of Navajo Sandstone hoodoos, domes, narrow passages, and small arches, hidden from the view of drivers along Hole-in-the-Rock Road.
Dixie National Forest
This forest stretches for 170 miles across southern Utah. Visitors can experience its brilliant red spires and cliffs by car or by hiking one of the nature trails in the canyon.
Between Capitol Reef and Bryce Canyon national parks and perched on the edge of Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument, the town of Escalante offers access to some of the most beautiful parts of Southern Utah.
