Glamping is here to stay, at least for the near future. It’s the “soft” way to camp for groups, with less grit and more glamour. Here are some great options in the Mountain West to consider.

One of the newest is Conestoga Ranch at Utah’s Bear Lake in Garden City. With a soft opening in late June and official opening July 1, the 18-acre resort can host up to 160 guests in eight high-end glamping tents with en-suite bathrooms featuring hot showers and 16 custom-crafted conestogas, more commonly known as covered wagons. Resort amenities include a main lodge with restaurant and bar, game tent, bathhouse, shake shack and activities field. Live entertainment, rodeos and equipment rentals such as paddleboards and other water recreation equipment promise to keep everyone having fun.

Last April, Moab became Utah’s first glamping location with the opening of Moab Under Canvas, providing guests with safari-style accommodations that disappear at the end of the travel season, with little trace left on the landscape. Not only are the views of Arches National Park monumental, relaxation and adrenaline packages can be added and include activities such as hot air ballooning, scenic flights, mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking and more. Moab Under Canvas can sleep groups of up to 120 and host gatherings for up to 300 guests. Large TipiMarqui tents have sides that flip up and down for seasonal weather and allow for combining up to seven tents to create artful spaces for group dining, dancing, receptions and other private events. The company also has Glacier Under Canvas and Yellowstone Under Canvas in Montana.

At The High Lonesome Ranch in DeBeque, Colorado, Castle Rock Camp sleeps up to 16 guests in distinct tents with large log poles. Private luxury bathrooms with stone showers and closets keep the comfort level high, plus it’s hard to beat sleeping to the sounds of nearby Kimball Creek. A 2,800-square-foot lodge is the place for meals and gatherings, and a veranda offers magnificent views of Castle Rock and the surroundings. Plus, tap into the activities and additional lodging options the ranch offers.

To take a look at the happenings in Tuolumne County, we’ll zoom in on three areas: Yosemite National Park, Gold Country and High Sierra.

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.
