Under Canvas Takes Glamping to New Heights in 2021
At a time when road-trip travel and outdoor adventures are on everyone’s mind, Under Canvas is excited to introduce new camps on the horizon and more amenities for the perfect glamping experience. Guests can explore the best of America’s national parks, monuments and outdoor spaces with new curated adventure programming, culinary delights and more ways to relax in comfort and style in the most breathtaking and remote locations. We believe that being outside doesn’t necessarily mean ‘roughing-it’ and that nature inspires and connects friends and family who are committed to leaving a minimal footprint and making memories that last a lifetime.
This spring, Under Canvas will open two new locations just outside of Acadia National Park and Utah’s Canyon Rim Plateau. Our first waterfront location, Under Canvas Acadia, will immerse guests in the coastal New England environment and emerald green spruce and fir tree forests, with sweeping a sweeping lawn that reaches to the Union River Bay, and breathtaking views of Acadia’s famed mountainous landscape including Cadillac Mountain. Just steps from the beach, guests can enjoy water sports and coastal experiences such as weekly waterfront lobster bakes and night-sky astronomy from a boat.
Our newest Utah location, Under Canvas Lake Powell – Grand Staircase will give guests access to top attractions such as Antelope Canyon and Lone Rock Beach at Lake Powell, Wahweap Marina, picturesque Horseshoe Bend, Grosvenor Arch and it even has its own Elephant Slot Canyon among other natural features that can be explored right outside your tent. Find 7 unique ways to experience Lake Powell and Grand Staircase-Escalante here. All safari-style accommodations at both new locations will have en suite bathrooms and private decks, plush king-size beds, luxe linens, USB charging packs, bedside lanterns and a wood-burning stove among other amenities so you can rest comfortably beneath the stars.

A stay at Under Canvas allows guests to explore the best of the outdoors with ease and reconnect with what it means to be Outside Together. Travelers looking to stay at one of our nine locations for two or more nights can now experience the “best of” adventures in and around the national parks and monuments with a new Adventure Package, taking the hassle out of planning. An Adventure Package combines the location and tent type of choice with one or more adventures from a curated list of locally guided experiences ranging from kayaking and whitewater rafting to canyoneering, ATV tours and even lobstering, or simply a guided hike with a local. Our Adventures Concierge is available to craft your custom itinerary to match your budget and desired experience.
We are so excited to host you for an outstanding season at Under Canvas!
