Glamping at its finest
We spent 2 nights at Under Canvas Moab as part of our hiking/rafting/canyoneering girl's trip and liked it very much. The beds are comfortable, the rooms (ok tents) are nicely furnished, the staff are helpful and friendly and everything is clean and well organized. Our tent didn't have a bathroom in it, but we were happy to walk the short distance to the restrooms and showers. These were also spotless with good and plentiful towels available. Long showers are discouraged by the fact that you have to pull down on a chain to release water from the shower, but that seems reasonable given that you are in a desert climate. The only cons for some people might be the fact that you can hear everything that goes on in the camp, (we were lucky that there were no late night partiers while we were on site) including the crunching of gravel as people walk around the campsite, and there is some highway noise if you are a light sleeper. We didn't have an issue with it, and noticed that there are even white noise machines in each room that can be used to drown the sounds out if needed. we also appreciated the portable rechargers for phones that were in every room. It wasn't cold enough for us to make use of the woodburning stove in our room, but think this would be lovely in cooler weather. It might not be to everyone's taste, but if you are looking for a unique camping experience that won't leave you with a sore back, this is a great option. The views in all directions are stunning.

When we were planning our trip to Moab we had a lot of choices for where we would stay. Brand new hotels that were cheaper were available to us, but the idea of glamping seemed like a unique experience...and it was! Location and setting was awesome! The staff was above & beyond attentive & professional! The facilities were perfect! We read ahead of time that noise at night was a factor, honestly not a negative but just a thing that just happens when you’re in a tent in the middle of a canyon area, noises are amplified. Whether it’s the busy road in the near distance or simply guest walking past your tent, do yourself a favor and get ear plugs! We had s’mores at the campfire at night and a nice breakfast at the welcome center the next morning before we went hiking at the Arches. The staff even decorated our tent with a sign saying Happy Birthday & balloons, it was my 57th birthday! We wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed the camp more, but now we’re looking at new destinations for future vacations that we can stay at Under Canvas again! It was awesome!

Really Unique Lodging Experience
I live in hotels for work so on this trip I had a chance to bring my son to celebrate his graduation from high school and decided to stay here for 1-night. We came down from SLC and spent the day driving a UTV through Moab and then we checked in at Moab Under Canvas around 10:00. Kirsten was really nice and very helpful getting us situated. The camp site is well organized, the tent we were in was really nice, it was windy so the sides of the tent were “flapping” but we both slept really well (think waves hitting the sides of a boat, for me this is very relaxing). We didn’t use the wood burning stove but it would be a nice touch during the cooler months. There are battery backs that run lanterns next to the bed and you can plug in a USB phone charger. The community bathrooms are nice, the shower water was really hot and there is plenty of room to get dressed. Very cool experience, will certainly stay again when near one of their locations.

Under Canvas Glamping
A different type of camping you don't have to pitch a tent or hook up your RV.
Our tent was a Deluxe with a king size bed shower, toilet and Sink inside nice wood burning stove for the cool evenings.
24hr lobby tent with staff on duty.
They had coffee, hot cocoa, water and snack items along with fresh fruit all the time.
Outside the Lobby tent was a fire ring where every night they would have a Smore fire going and provided the Smore items also always plenty to go around.
They also had 5 grilling areas where you could cook your meals which we used many times.
Most of the sites have a great view of the canyons and Arch National Park where you could see sunrise and sunset of one of the Window Arches from Tent site 4 was a great view.
Clean Rest rooms and shower facilities for those that didn't have shower and toilets in the tents.
Had a great 4 day stay minutes away from downtown Moab, Utah

Expensive for what you get
There are a bunch of cons and pros.
Let's start with the pros
1) images in general are accurate.
2) description was accurate
3) the place itself is well managed
4) the showers are easily accessible and they're nice to have on a sunny day.
2) hot (it's a desert in June, I know it is bound to be hot)
3) Bed had some pet hair.
4) It felt like a tent with a nice bed practically; and I guess I was hoping for a hotel room in a tent.
I would do it again, if the price was right.
