Glamping in Bear Lake? Best Trip Ever.

Heard of "Glamping"? It's a thing. A GLORIOUS thing.

We were invited to to go glamping in Bear Lake at the Conestoga Ranch, Check it out:

Here's what you need to know about Glamping in Bear Lake:

  • Conestoga Ranch is in Garden City along the shores of Bear Lake. (Also known as the "Caribbean of the Rockies")
  • Golf cart service for your luggage from your car to your tent - no need to haul everything on your own.
  • Some tents have bathrooms, some don't. If you don't reserve a tent with a full bathroom, there are VERY CLEAN (and very nice) facilities (bathrooms and showers) that you'll have access to. They are cleaned three times a day.
  • You can grab food at the Campfire Grill or make your own. (There are picnic tables, fire pits, and grills)
  • The food at Campfire Grill? Amazing. EVERYTHING we tried was so good. We did get a little nuts with the chocolate chip cookie in a skillet dessert. Pace yourselves.
  • Can you go in the fall? Yes, through October 2nd (2016). It's a little chilly at night but they've got you covered (electric blankets and space heaters in tents etc.) We bundled up and were totally warm. The daytime temps were PERFECT!
  • Their season usually runs from May-October
  • The lake? You can see it from the resort and drive there in less than 5 minutes.
  • Want to go with friends? It's the perfect location for a trip with family friends or a family reunion. There are a variety of accommodations for varying budgets. We are booking the conestoga wagons with friends next summer and the resort will actually circle your wagons next to each other!
  • Want a tent with all of the bells and whistles? (Full bathroom, bunk beds, the works?) Check out our tent - it sleeps 8!
  • Want to light a fire? They'll actually come up and light it for you! (They also provide a big bucket of water next to the fire for you to put it out AND they cruise the resort each night and double check everyone's fire pit)
  • It's in Utah. Easy road trip for our friends along the Wasatch Front - but it's also about a 2 hour drive from the SLC airport and Conestoga Ranch has guests from all over the world.
  • The people on staff were amazing and were from all over the world.
  • Would we do it again? Yes. Yes. Yes. Our kids absolutely LOVED it.

The Best Tent for Families

I wanted to share my absolute favorite piece of camping gear—my Springbar Tent from Kirkham’s. It's the best tent for families, hands down.

There are few things that impact family vacations quite as much as being prepared. It’s one thing to have to call the front desk to get a toothbrush. It’s quite another to share a sleeping bag at 8,500 feet because yours got left behind.
