Perched on a canyon rim, with views of Lake Powell and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, this 50-tent oasis set on 220 acres offers on-site dining, an adventures concierge to help you plan your days, complimentary camp activities and firepits with complimentary S’mores.

Located near the Utah-Arizona border, it’s just a 10-minute drive to a Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument entrance and to Lone Rock Beach at Lake Powell. This unique spot in Big Water, Utah, also has its own slot canyon on site called Elephant Canyon. Similar to other Under Canvas locations, the tented camp features upscale, canvas tents complete with king-sized beds and ensuite bathrooms.

You’ll discover hip and wonderfully modern furnishings from West Elm®, the modern home furnishings retailer, and the beds are made with luxurious linens. Your own private wood burning stove keeps your warm on cool nights. For families the Suite or the Deluxe with Kids tent offer accommodations for four to six and some room for everyone to have plenty of space. The Stargazer is perfect for couples, offering all the luxuries of the Deluxe Tent with a viewing window above the king bed.

An on-site restaurant makes it easy to roll out of bed and grab breakfast and pick up your pre-ordered lunch to go for the day’s adventures. From Under Canvas, you can reach a ton of iconic Southwest parks and destinations. Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park outside of Kanab, Utah, is about 1 hour and 10 minutes away and Zion National Park’s East Entrance, home to the iconic Checkerboard Mesa, is an easy one hour and 20 minutes away.

At night, enjoy a drink, dinner and complimentary s’mores under a canopy of stars before sliding into your cozy bed.
