An upscale, comfort-camping experience is what Conestoga Ranch at Utah’s Bear Lake in Garden City is all about. Officially opened on 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 ameni- ties include a main lodge with a restaurant and bar, game tent, bath house, Shake Shack and activities field. Live entertain- ment, rodeos and equipment rentals such as paddleboards and other water recre- ation equipment promise to keep everyone having fun.
Conestoga Ranch is a collaborative effort between five partners, who also established Canvas & Company just south of Garden City to manufacture and sell tents and wagons like those at the resort.
