Zion might mean “sanctuary” but your perfect refuge will be where you end up laying your head at night.

Adventurers flock to Zion National Park for its unique red rock and jaw-dropping vistas. You could try your hand (or should it be feet?) at some backpacking adventures where the best option for comfort is a thick sleeping pad. But why not set up your basecamp where it’s a bit more relaxing and where you don’t have to bring everything you’ll need on your back?

There’s no shortage of incredible hikes and unique activities that you can do when you venture into this impressive Park. Whether it be an all day hike up to The Subway or a sunrise session at Avenue of the Giants, you’ll need a place to unwind and reset. So no matter the time you visit Zion National Park, make sure to find your next glamping spot in the recommendations below!

1. Under Canvas Zion

Why you should stay: it might look like a tent, but it’s got oodles of luxury.

  • Nearest town: Virgin, UT
  • Sleeps: 6 guests
  • Minimum Stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $354/night

The safari-like tents at Under Canvas Zion are more akin to an upscale New York hotel than anything else. Unlike the usual stuffiness that comes with a New York high-rise, these tents create an atmosphere full of warmth and comfort. There are several types of tens to choose from that range anywhere from sleeping two to six people but the best one is, by far, the Stargazer tent. It’s ideal for a romantic getaway where you can view the stars while snuggling with your partner in bed.

Its remote location means you’ll have plenty of privacy and views to die for. The on-site dining means you don’t have to leave to experience a five-star meal. There’s also plenty of fun to be had outside the rooms including complimentary activities like morning yoga, kid-focused games, night music, s’mores making, and live music.

Why you should stay: creekside digs with WiFi — an often tough ask when glamping.

  • Nearest town: La Verkin, UT
  • Sleeps: 4 guests
  • Minimum Stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $179/night

In a place that gets bombarded with tourists, find your own slice of heaven at this creekside glamping spot. The property is home to only two tents which means you won’t have too many unwanted interactions with other guests. Better yet, book out both tents and have the whole place to yourselves!

Start off your day with some River Rock coffee provided by your generous hosts. After adventuring all day in the Park, come back to your tents nestled under the large cottonwood trees clumped throughout the area. No need to bring stoves since two large ones are already there along with everything you need for eating and drinking. You won’t even need to bring wood for the fire pit since it’s fueled by propane. Don’t forget your swimsuit, though — there’s an onsite hot tub to rest your achy muscles after a day of adventuring.

Why you should stay: no one knows more about the best places to adventure around Zion than these hosts.

  • Nearest town: Colorado City, AZ
  • Sleeps: 4 guests
  • Minimum Stay: 1 night

If you’re looking for a splash of color on top of the beautiful sunsets southwestern Utah provides, look no further than Land Beyond Zion.

You’ll feel off-grid enough but won’t do without modern amenities like Wi-Fi and hot water. Shanti Hodges, the owner of this incredible spot, says “we wanted to create a space that had art, dark skies, and offered a variety of lodging options for any type of traveler.” And it’s true. Land Beyond Zion invites folks who want to bring a tent, roll up in a van, prefer a canvas tent, or even those who want to rent a trailer.

Why you should stay: red rock views with a private hot tub.

  • Nearest town: Virgin, UT

This tiny home might not be very mighty, but the property is anything but! Sprawling over 75 acres, the Guardian Angel tiny home is a great place to rest your head after a day of romping around the national park. There’s a full-size and fully stocked kitchen which is rare for a tiny home.

The exterior of the home includes an inviting front porch complete with a retro-like, ruby red barbeque and enough seating for four. The interior’s modern and industrial-themed accents make its class go up a notch. Almost the entire home has floor-to-ceiling windows so there is never a lack of natural light. You likely won’t even need to close the blinds (although you can if you want to) because there’s no neighbors for miles!

What really sets this yurt apart from others is the surrounding red sandstone that towers in all directions. Honestly, you might not even need to visit Zion National Park if you stay here.

Why you should stay: ten-gallon hats won’t seem out of place here.

  • Nearest town: Mt Carmel Junction, UT
  • Sleeps: 4 guests (2 adults plus 2 children only)
  • Minimum Stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $200/night

You might find yourself feeling like you’ve stepped foot in an old western when you stay at the Boundary Cabin. The corrugated metal roof complements the desert rains that sweep through the area during its monsoon season.

The sound of rain falling on it is better than any sound machine you’ll bring. Just make sure not to sleep in so you can head to the Park (which is only a mile away) for sunrise.

The outside has a wrap-around, 360-degree porch, horseshoe pit, cornhole games, and two fire pits! Not to mention, books, cards, board games, hammocks, and even yoga mats are provided for you.

Do you have picky eaters with you? With the three burner stove inside and the barbecue on the wrap-around deck, you can cook up whatever anyone desires. No need to bring the pancake mix, though, since the hosts provide that for you; along with all the other essentials. And, yes, pancake mix is essential when glamping.

You can also rent their complimentary bikes to roll around town. Oh, do you need something more relaxing?

Why you should stay: the skylight over the bed means stargazing at all hours.

  • Nearest town: Orderville, UT
  • Sleeps: 4 guests
  • Minimum Stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $128/night

Sitting perched on a hillside, the Treetop Houses at East Zion Resort are like no other. The views from your front porch are unobstructed which means you’ll get the most stunning sunsets. The sunsets in southern Utah with all the red sandstone rock are not to be missed! But, hey, if sunsets aren’t your thing, that’s alright. The houses are expertly decorated with industrial shelving, live-edge countertops, and modern appliances.

The real reason to book your stay here, though, are the experiences the resort offers. Whether you want canyoneering tours, slide through a slot canyon, up your adrenaline by doing a via ferrata, or simply go for a horseback ride – this resort offers all kinds of tours. You can also just stay at the resort and soak in the hot tub or go for a swim in the large pool they have on site.

Why you should stay: all the horse, pony, and duck snuggles you could ever need.

  • Nearest town: Virgin, UT
  • Sleeps: 2 guests
  • Minimum Stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $200/night

Don’t forget the whiskey when you stay at Zion on the 9 Resort or you’ll regret it. The property has a historic prohibition-style barn (aptly named “Boozy Bull Bar’n”) that guests use as a place to mingle. The ambient, red lighting will throw you straight back into the 1920s — BYO flapper dress, though. If you’ve got some musical talent, try your hands on the piano and play some good ol’ fashioned saloon music. There’s plenty of space to even start a small line dance.

But if socializing isn’t on your “must-do” list, there are plenty of other spaces around the property to get some space. There’s a beautiful sitting area underneath a pergola blanketed with grape vines. Or just simply head back to your tent. The resort has three luxurious canvas tents and a tent platform to choose from. You can’t go wrong with any.

Although the cowboy camp is full of fun, the best part is adventuring around the area. The camp is situated the perfect distance from Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Zion National Park, Kanab, Grand Canyon North Rim, and even Lake Powell. The possibilities are endless!
