Lucky us! We had the opportunity to stay in the brand new yurts at Dead Horse Point State Park a couple of weekends ago. Bedge was asked by park management to photograph them and since Dead Horse Point is one of my favorite state parks no way was Bedge going up there without us.
We stayed in a yurt in Goblin Valley State Park a couple summers ago and it was really nice and fun so I was excited to stay in the new one at Dead Horse Point.
The park utilized the group camping area and erected three really nice yurts there. Already in place was a bathroom with running water and a heater, a large covered picnic area and access to the mountain bike trails. One of the reasons I love Dead Horse Point is because of how clean and modern their bathrooms are. Flush toilets, running water, soap and heaters? You don’t find that kind of luxury often at state parks.
Dead Horse Point yurts are nicely furnished
Night Stand with Lamp
Reading Chair and side Table
Faux Wood Burning Stove
Talk about a nice reprieve from the desert heat.
They provide nice propane grills on the deck so you can gourmet it up.
At night you won’t want to leave the comfy reclining chairs which allow you to gaze up at the stars.
Access to the Intrepid mountain bike trails is conveniently located right at the yurts.
This is as close to glamping as I’ll ever get, however, there is something to be said for walking into a nicely air conditioned place with comfortable seating where you can kick up your feet and relax after biking and hiking.
Starting October 1, 2014 the yurts will be available for reservations!
Have you ever stayed in a yurt? Would you?
