You Can Stay In A Cozy Covered Wagon Near Utah’s National Parks

These covered wagons are nothing like those of the olden days.

Travel by air might not be the best idea at the moment given the current climate. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a staycation, especially since the US is full of wonderful, natural beauty. If camping out under the stars is too rough for you, then perhaps this glamping alternative might be a fun option.

A very different camping site with stunning views up in Utah definitely gives you the break you desire without necessarily having to travel far or on a plane. Plus, their unique accommodation options include Conestoga wagons – how cool is that?

The Capitol Reef Resort isn’t far from one of Utah’s most famous national parks, which means you get the beautiful views of the red-rocks as well as endless night skies. These views can be enjoyed from either their hotel rooms in their main resort or from either cabins or luxury tepees. But perhaps the coolest option is the covered wagons.

The covered wagons are nothing like the olden days – each of these wagons can accommodate up to six people and they have their own private bathrooms just outside. Plus there are fire pits nearby as well which you can enjoy. The campgrounds even have a pool area plus a hot tub for guests to enjoy.

Some of the nearby places to see and explore are Hickman’s Bridge, Fishlake National Forest, Anasazi State Park, and the Prehistoric Petroglyph. These would make the wagons a wonderful place to end your days of adventure. There have already been reviews from people who enjoyed their time there. One person wrote that their stay included some gorgeous views. The review further explained that the atmosphere was quite cozy and included lanterns, a few fire pits, as well as a bunch of stars. As the person described, “It was a beautiful evening with zillions of stars in the sky.” Needless to say, this review would recommend it as they would go back again.

We couldn’t agree with @cntraveler more! Visit our website or give us a call to start planning your road trip today!⁣ ⁣ #Repost @cntraveler with @get_repost⁣ ・・・⁣ No road trip in America is more visually mind-blowing than a tour of the Mighty Five—the tight cluster of national parks in Utah that include Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Arches, and Canyonlands. Whether you start in Salt Lake City and work your way South, or head east from Las Vegas, it CAN be done in three days, but most people take seven, or even fourteen if they’re really going for it. Most of your time should and will be spent knocking around the Mars-like formations of red rocks, jutting needle spires, and sheer drops to the Colorado River, but in true American road-trip fashion, there’s some pitstops worth making along the way. We gathered up everything you should know at the link in bio. 📷: @reneeroaming

At present, it is looking like the wagon bookings are only available from the end of May until September. Plus, since the government has advised to limiting travel to essential trips, it could be a 2021 goal to save up for – and we’ll all need a good long vacation come 2021 when this is over.

What do you think of the wagons? Would you stay in one? Let us know!
