For our first #glamping experience, we couldn’t think of a better place than Under Canvas Zion! This place is a gem that opened this last year (2017) in August, making us one of the first guests to stay at here. How cool!?

Those of you who might not know, glamping is basically “glorified” or “luxury” camping. Since neither of us have ever been glamping we weren’t sure what to expect. But Under Canvas exceeded our expectations! With the campsite being right in Zion literally you’re smack dab in the middle of a bunch of canyons, the views all around were unbelievable. Nicholle grew up camping at a lot of different places and she was blown away at how beautiful this place was. 😍
Our canvas tent was pretty spacious with a huge king size bed, sleeping bags, a couple of chairs, and fortunately for us ours was equipped with a small fire stove. Thank god because we were unaware that it gets so cold at night in the desert! They also provided two USB portable chargers on each side of the bed so you can even charge your phone 🙌🏼.
Our tent did not have a bathroom but they have public restrooms and showers that you can use during your stay. They have tile floors, a pull chain shower head, and they provide you with towels, body wash, and shampoo. Which is great because we didn’t think to pack towels 🤦🏼♀️. The public bathrooms were very clean compared to most campsites we’ve been to. And they do have tents available with private bathrooms!
We work up early the next morning to experience the morning sun kissing the canyons.🌄 #beautiful
Before we headed off to our next adventure, we enjoyed a hot breakfast offered in their small dining area. They have options such as a bagel sandwich or a breakfast burrito with potatoes. They also have tea, coffee, cider, and hot coco! Keep in mind for anyone wanting to visit this location, breakfast is during specific times.
Camping at Under Canvas Zion was truly a unique experience and we are so thankful that we got to stay with them!
Under Canvas also has a few other locations such as: Grand Canyon, Moab, Yellowstone, Glacier, Great Smoky Mountains, and Mount Rushmore. Which we hope to check out in the future! ⛺️🏜🤘🏼
