Under Canvas is the perfect option to satisfy an outdoor camping experience with all the comforts of a luxury hotel! The staff is exceptional, and the facilities are superb. This is our second Under Canvas experience, and we're already thinking about the next location to explore! Just go ahead and book it!

My husband and I just stayed at this magical place for the last night of our 4 nights in the Zion area. It was perfect. The tent was spacious, clean and comfortable. We were there in 100 degree heat, arrived around 5:30pm and there was a wonderful cross breeze in the tent. We had no complaints about the heat. Food was good, views incredible, and seeing the stars looking up from our bed was a one of a kind experience - like sleeping in a planetarium! Under Canvas thoughtfully provides eye masks so you don’t wake up at dawn. Bathroom en suite was completely comfortable! We had zero issues with bugs, heat or cleanliness. We’ll remember this experience for a lifetime.

Under Canvas Zion is a beautiful camp site in the mountains of Utah. Breathtaking surroundings, zero electricity and 100% unplugged fun. Comfy beds, misters to beat the heat and great food and excellent service. I highly recommend UCZ if you’re looking for a fun place to take the family. Conveniently located neat Mt. Zion Nat Park and there are plenty of hiking spots, swimming holes and dining nearby as well as in the main tent. Their food was pricey but everything was delicious.

Beautiful views and great escape! We loved our time at Under the Canvas in Zion. It’s a great digital escape as there is no electricity or Wi-F. The views are breathtaking! The tents are basic but everything you need. The food is average but not why you go Glamping. Ask for a tent close to the reception area or you will have a huge hike or drive. If you are a serious cyclist you can bike from Zion to Under the Canvas! We did challenging but worth the 18 mile ride!! Highly recommend for families or couples!

Under canvas Zion- overpriced, dirty, far from Zion park and not customer focused

Under canvas Zion- overpriced and not customer focused  This is not clamping,it is camping with a $500 a night price tag + 50 for taxes and camp fees + 50 for resort fees (lol, why ?  No pool no. Ac, $50 for smores). $600 a night for hotel management that does not care about making guests comfortable.  There are cockaroches everywhere, by the smores pits and in the tents as there are many openings in the floors.  Under canvas zion is 30 minutes from Zion National Park ,so it isn't close, especially if you want to be in the park first to access limited parking.  There are many marriott options that cost a third of the price that have cold ac and are clean and less than. 10 minutes from the entrance.   The staff was accommodating but not equipped by management with essentials to make my family's stay comfortable. The tents were so hot we had to stay in town until 9 or 10ish before temperatures dropped to 90.  The manager Robert was a real peach, both my truck and my phone registered a temperature of 92 that night and I asked the manager Robert to turn on our mister inside and outside the tent.  He said it had to be 90 or above before he would turn on.  I showed and explained the temperature reading I had, and Robert said his air-conditioned main tent said 86 and would not turn on.  I asked if it was a Utah law, and he said it was his law as they had to conserve water. Fine but not for $600 a night. Only issued 2 small plastic fans for 4 people.  Had to ask several employees to secure 2 additional small fans.  The trouble is that the battery packs they provide are small and inadequate and die after 3-4 hours, so you wake up in the middle of the night sweating.  The shower is pull chain, but the water is scorching hot and can not be adjusted likely to conserve more water.  Our plan was for cold showers before sleep to help with tent heat. The only positive was the stars, but I again would recommend hotel and then driving out to wilderness entrance to see stars and go back to your lower cost, cold ac, closer to park hotel for a good night's sleep.  I think the colder months might be just as bad as I am sure you will have snakes and mice seeking warmth as the tents have too many points of entrance/egress to stop them from entering.  I'm just glad we only booked 1 night there as our hotel was 1000% better.  If you want a little more wilderness and more amenities, we saw a place down the road called Wildflower. Like I said we stayed at a Marriott in town and everyone was much happoer. I'm not sure about prices, but places looked better equipped.  Under Canvas Zion is supposedly their flagship property, so I can only image conditions of the other properties like Moab and others. I understand you can't predict weather but  I shouldn't have to request additional fans, I should have sufficient power blocks to support those devices and should not have to come to main air-conditioned tent management stays in and ask for cooler with ice and carry to my tent.  It was over 100 during the day, you should have anticipated the heat and had tent prepared for my family and if I ask for mister to be turned on I shouldn't be told no because of a 4 degree difference especially because it was hotter in tent than outside. Overall, it was a terrible stay, and my family and I will not be back to stay at any Under Canvas property in the future. We will be sure to tell extended family and friends not to make the same mistake and how we were treated.  I hope this review answers questions/concerns that people have that are considering this property.
