This article about Utah glamping spots is brought to you by Wenzel. Check out their selection of pop-up shelters — the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors, while shielding yourself from sunburns and insects.
Camping has its merits, but there are times when nature is best enjoyed in comfort. There’s no shame in splurging on a glamorous campsite to enjoy a hot shower and give your back a break from the hard ground. Opt for a night glamping in Utah and spend the evening surrounded by towering red-rock cliffs or within view of a glittering alpine lake with many of the conveniences of a hotel.
The following Utah glamping spots range from traditional RV parks and hotels to off the grid hideaways. Most glamping sites include many of the amenities of a hotel including linens, towels, and toiletries, but you’ll want to make sure to call ahead for details, since more rustic sites may require you to bring your own sleeping gear. Glamping is a great way to enjoy camping in Utah and explore Utah’s national parks.
