The space
PLEASE ONLY BOOK WITH US IF YOU ARE ABLE TO BE HERE BY 6PM CHECK IN.
The Tentsile is spacious enough for 3 average people or a very romantic experience for 2. It sits up about 8 feet off the ground & has a weight capacity of 800lbs. There is a ladder to enter from the bottom hatch that zips closed & has a zipper pouch for your shoes. We have a bug net & rainfly for it, or you can sleep under the stars without either one. It is a very comfortable space to sleep, & is taught enough for side sleepers to be comfortable as well. BE SURE TO BRING WARM BEDDING FOR COOLER NIGHTS.

THIS IS NOT GLAMPING. THIS IS CAMPING AND IS NOT FOR EVERYONE.
There is a Bathhouse with Showers and Flush Toilets. Showers are with a Token and must be purchased during store hours. The bathhouse is shared with other campers and gets dirty. We are surrounded by red dirt. Toilets get clogged, it happens in any public bathroom. It is cleaned everyday.
The bathhouse is under renovation and plan to be finished March 27, 2018.
AFTER HOURS COMMUNICATION IS DIFFICULT THIS REMOTE. WE GET CELL SERVICE IN THE STORE ONLY.
Drive into the campground slowly. We have a 5 mph speed limit.
Do not bring food inside the tipi, it could attract little critters.
Do Not Leave Food or Trash outside unattended. There are resident Ravens that are aware of what packaged food and trash bags contain.
Trash bags are to be TIED & placed inside the shed behind the store.
Potable water is available for free inside the park at the visitors center.

This is the wild, rustic, dirty desert. Keep in mind this is a rugged camping experience not for the faint at heart. The desert is Hot in the summer, the weather is unpredictable and you may experience our wild storms... You may hear coyotes, see spiders, experience the annoying desert gnats at certain times of the day during the hotter summer season. You will want to bring bug spray, if you forgot we do sell it in our camp store. If you stay with us you will get the experience of desert camping, wild, raw and rugged. It is an amazing experience to be had, with beautiful views and the feeling of freedom that is hard to find in your more civilized and populated locations.

We are a campground next to Canyonlands National Park Needles District. Hiking is very accessible. For those into 4 wheel driving, Elephant Hill, Lock Hart Basin and Beef Basin is a short drive away. For the rock climbers, the climbing walls are just a short drive away with the option of showers at the end of the day. Families have great fun climbing on the Rocks, playing in the Sand hill down by campsite #1, hiking in the Park as well as on our private property. We have wonderful views & amazing sunsets for those who just want to relax & experience the peace & quiet.
