Glamping in Zion

A few weeks back, Kyson and I had the opportunity to stay in a unique campground just outside of Zion National Park. The campground was completely empty due to unexpected freezing weather (thank god for sleeping bags), leaving us with some awesome photos.









The campground consists of a group of canvas tents nestled behind some beautiful, dramatic red rock near Zion. The tents each have a full size mattress or bed in them, a heater for cold nights, a small light to hang up in your tent, a side table, and a rug to wipe the colored dirt off of your shoes before hitting the hay. The campground also includes a fire pit, a grill, chairs to sit around the fire and a table.










The campground is open to the west, leaving a gorgeous view of the desert sunset. 




 Opposite the sunset, the red rock is blanketed with golden-red hues.

If you are a local to Utah or any of the neighboring states, I highly recommend visiting Zion during the winter at some point in time. The snow is a beautiful contrast to the deep red rock. It's also WAAYY less crowded with tourists.

The rest of the photos are of our hike through Canyon Overlook Point.























 The Canyon Overlook Trail is one of the less popular trails in Zion, because most people hit Angels Landing or the Narrows for their experience here. But if you want a short, easy hike for an amazing view, then the overlook trail is your guy. This trail offers some really cool photo opportunities for photographers. Bonus: You wont have to lug your heavy equipment for nearly as far.

 A made a lot of new friends here too. 😁
















Hope you enjoyed looking at these photos! If you are interested in staying at the campground we stayed at, you can book here.
