Also near Zion National Park, this beautiful cabin has a great view of West Temple. However, due to its rural and bucolic setting, you will have to use your own transportation or rent a car to move around. This cozy and homey living room has a small fireplace for you to keep warm when it is chilly at night. This queen-sized bed really is fit for a queen (and her king!). Enjoy the comfortable mattress, down comforter, and feather-light pillows. The vaulted ceilings and high windows also provide an open space with good lighting, making the room livelier. The sliding door will bring you to your very own private deck. Be mesmerized by the views of Zion’s West Temple from your own private deck. Keep your ears open as the wolves howl typically twice a night. Take the opportunity to touch and be close to these majestic creatures with the owner’s permission. Papa Wolf in his natural habitat. Surrounded by biking trails, rent a bike at local store, Over The Edge Sports, to try cycling on these rough terrains.

Run by hippies, Mystic Hot Springs aims to raise awareness through direct experiences with nature, art, and antiquities. Go back in time and stay in a piece of pioneer history from more than 150 years ago. If you are looking for comfort and luxury, this cozy cabin is probably not a spot for you. It is only suitable for truly adventurous and nature-loving people that don’t mind not having a proper toilet and running water. However it includes electricity, a fire pit, and a charcoal grill. With the wooden furniture and printed carpets, this living room looks like a scene from Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It is even heated by a wood-burning stove when it gets cold at night. Snuggle into this cozy corner and don’t worry that people will wake you up, let alone even find you here. And here is the highlight of the whole stay! This is what embracing and discovering the beauty of nature really means. Soak yourself in this open-spaced hot tub and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. It is all natural, with no preservatives. Enjoy! As there is no running water in the cabin, guests will have to take a short one-minute walk to a common campground bathroom building where there are toilets for both males and females.

Located at Oljato-Monument Valley, this campsite is close to Navajo Tribal Park. However, you will have to get your own tent and gear for the full outdoor experience as they are not provided. (You can, however, pay extra to rent anything you need.) The space is large so you are free to park anywhere you want. The hosts are friendly and are willing to chat and even sing some Navajo songs upon request. If you did not bring your own tent gear and equipment, do not panic! The hosts will rent out their tents, cots, or sleeping bags to guests for a small fee so you won’t be sleeping in the open space. The highlight of the whole camping experience would probably be the breathtaking scenic landscapes that you can’t find anywhere else. Take a tour with the friendly hosts as they show you the popular totem pole at Down Valley. Walk up the trail to see a different view of the valley.
