Glamping, y'all: BaseCamp 37°
Off the grid. Surrounded by parks and awe-inspiring landscapes. This is BaseCamp 37°.
First, what is glamping?
Glamping is a portmanteau of "glamorous" and "camping", and describes a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style services not usually associated with "traditional" camping.
Is traditional tent camping intimidating or not something you can get behind? Consider glamping and enjoy some incredible amenities and more comforts of home.
So, you've decided to go glamping. Now what? Where to stay?
Welcome to BaseCamp 37°, a spacious, secluded, but totally connected, hideaway located just outside Kanab, Utah! Featuring safari-style tents, luxury beds and linens, hot showers (with toiletries), even hotter grills, and friendly folks.
BaseCamp 37° is a small, independent, women-owned and operated business since 2017. Guests are immersed in nature far from the pavement. With only five tents on the property, facing nothing but open land and huge vistas, it feels like you’re one of the chosen few.
8 miles east of Kanab (a cute small town featuring great restaurants and civilization) in the Chocolate Cliffs of the Grand Staircase under the magnificent Southern Utah sky.
After your day of adventure, it’s time to clean up, wind down a bit and then engage in some high quality nocturnal desert hang time. Gather in the communal kitchen/bar and enjoy s’mores by the campfire.
We stayed in the Escalante tent, featuring a super comfy California King bed, this tent welcomes weary bones in this east-facing tent with a sweet view and even better sunrises. A small futon makes this tent a good choice for those traveling with a third person, like us! Morning light and afternoon shade take turns hanging out with guests on the chill-worthy porch. The Escalante tent is closest to the many BaseCamp amenities.
The ability to charge phones, laptops, cameras and use lights with an independent solar array was probably one of the key sellers to this glamping experience. You can keep warm in the colder nights with hot water bottles, propane heaters, and even an electric mattress pad. And it's so convenient to park right at your tent.
Don't forget to bring your furry friends!
