Under Canvas Moab: Glamping
Glamping at Under Canvas Moab offers a paradoxically close connection with the outdoors you have come to immerse yourself in, compared to staying within the confines of a hotel room. It may be glam, but detached from nature it is not.
While staying in a fully-furnished luxury canvas tent may seem most suitable for city folk, experienced campers and backpackers might get an even bigger kick out of a tent that comes pre-stocked with firewood and clean bed linens. There’s no mucking around here — just basking in your airy surroundings. It’s camping without the dirty work.
The surroundings are, by the way, just moments from the entrance of Arches National Park, a central draw in the Moab area. The helpful Under Canvas Moab staff provide service equivalent to what you’d find in the nicest hotels. They’re ready to help recommend the right hike, bike, river run, or other outside attractions for your day. And when you arrive, your campsite host team crew is on hand to transport your luggage to your tent in their handy golf cart.
Hungry? No problem. They even offer grab-and-go food items you can take with you out the door. If you’d like to grill your dinner on-site, the staff will enlist their provisions company to bring in whatever ingredients you’d like.
You may want to dine in town, which is just a few miles down the main road in the opposite direction of Arches National Park. Plenty of options await and depending on your tastes, the camp’s staff can help point you to the right place.
By night, the staff builds a communal bonfire where guests meet, swap stories, and bond under the starry desert sky. S’mores are a frequent component of an evening, adding to the childlike pleasure of nibbling gold-roasted marshmallows before crawling into a fort to slumber the day’s exertion away.
While the place is fine for families and groups, the setting is especially wonderful for young adults, couples and friends who want to add something out of the ordinary to their desert wanderings. If it suits your budget best, you can snag a basic Safari tent — which sleeps up to two adults and two children — and make use of the tidy bathrooms nearby. Or if you’d like to go all-out, get one of the pricier Deluxe or Suite tents, which elevate camping to a whole new level. These canvas retreats bear untold wonders like your own private bathroom and a cool private patio with lounge chairs.
The only true hardship at Under Canvas Moab is getting yourself to leave this carefree, comfortable idyll. So remember you might want to stay another day — or promise yourself you’ll be back again to cozy up on a tent patio chair after another sunny day of sandstone sojourns. Under Canvas Moab is pet-friendly, but there is a $25-per-day charge. Experience the most luxurious camping vacations in Utah — book your stay today! (Read: "The Best Time to Visit Moab")
