Stayed here for two nights while visiting Zion National Park. Not too far from the park at all. Gorgeous drive between the two places. First of all the camp site is gorgeous. Located in the middle of nowhere and just beautiful. Our tent had an amazing sunrise view, just laid in bed and watched the sunrise. Beds were SO comfortable and my kids had the cots which were comfortable too. Great service, exceptional staff, clean for glamping. The s’mores at night by the campfire were a nice touch and having games available to use in the main tent were fun too. Bathrooms were spacious and clean too. Overall amazing stay! Cannot wait to try their other locations!

Don't miss an opportunity to sleep under the stars!
Started a 5-day road trip in Zion NP and through the Five Parks. We spent two nights here and I have to say, it was the best way to start off our trip. Under Canvass is glam camping at its best. The tent was amazing, as was the food and location. If you aren't lucky enough to book a deluxe tent, don't worry; the regular tent was perfect. You don't have access to a private bathroom, but there are rows of single bathroom uses, that include a full shower. Be prepared to shut down your devices as there is no service there, which is just fine. The nighttime scenery is the best and its a memory I will cherish for the rest of my life. Highly recommended.

Excellent food, fair prices. Reusable cups would be a good plus, also glasses to drink wine would be more than welcome. Staff very friendly and efficient as well as helpful. Very clean environment. A larger fan in the tent is a nice to have. Breakfast option such as bowl of cereal or toast n jam was missed. The board games could be renewed.

One of the highlights of our National Park tour!
Under Canvas - Zion turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip. In fact, my favorite moment was when we checked in and we were shown our tent. My children who have camped a few times were excited to "glamp" but my wife was a little apprehensive about the two nights that I signed her up for. When she saw the super comfortable bed, private bathroom, and all the care that was put into the tent she was quickly won over.
All the tents have privacy because the face in the same direction. We sat on our deck and enjoyed a breathtaking view. Sitting in a comfortable chair, enjoying a beautiful view and having our kids playing in nature was exactly what we were looking for out of our trip and Under Canvas delivered.
Things only got better when we had dinner. I had planned to try some restaurants in the area, but we ended up eating both nights at Under Canvas. The food was really well prepared, was made with fresh ingredients, had healthier options, and could be enjoyed on their deck with an incredible view.
The tents had a water system that you can turn on when it gets hot. There is one inside and one on the deck. The inside one seemed a little risky as everything would get damp, so we didn't use it. The one on the deck we used on the second day as the temperature was really rising. In cool weather, there is a stove that I can imagine would really warm the tent up quickly.
If you are considering trying this, I highly recommend it but there are a couple of items to be aware of. First, if it gets super hot, it is challenging to keep the tent cool. Our tent had a screened window and door so air could flow, but if you don't have a breeze, there is nothing you can do. There are two tiny fans in the room....but they are tiny. Second, which shouldn't be a surprise, there is no wifi. Neither in your room nor in the lobby/restaurant. We got about one bar from AT&T so we could send texts and emails, but that was about it. We couldn't make any calls from our phone. Third, it is possible to be disturbed with noise. We had a nice couple of days and only one night did people arrive late and wake us a little. This is hard to avoid and normal for any type of camping. Unfortunately it is just the luck of the draw whether you have quiet or noisy neighbors.
One last item to mention was that the staff recommended several hikes outside of the main park. You are still in Zion National Park, but just not where everyone else goes. We thoroughly enjoyed this as we were disappointed by how crowded the park was. In fact, we loved Under Canvas because it is just far away enough that you get some real peace and tranquility. Had we stayed at the Zion Lodge or any of the hotels right outside of the park, it would not been nearly as peaceful.
We loved how Under Canvas really makes an effort to leave as small a footprint in nature as they can. It was a great lesson and one that we want to continue practicing.
