10 Best Glamping Tiny Houses near National Parks

Who’s ready for summer?

I’m putting together my top ten picks for the best glamping tiny house spots I’ve discovered near some of the most amazing national parks across the country.

South Rim Grand Canyon National Park I Arizona

Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

  1. Escalante Escapes

Hands down, Escalante Escapes is number one on my list for the best glamping tiny house getaway in this magical part of southern Utah.

The drive out to this luxurious tiny house resort is a treat in itself with the Grand Escalante Staircase cliffs as your backdrop.

Made up of 9 tiny houses total this resort is situated between Bryce Canyon National Park and Capitol Reef Park, as well as many local trails to check out in Escalante, Utah.

Each luxurious tiny house comes fully stocked with kitchens for all your cooking needs for extended stays or short!

A private deck, for sunsets, a fire pit for roasting those marshmallows, and views for days……

I stayed in the Holly Hock Tiny House and felt like the queen of glamping with my own comfy king sized bed all to myself. This tiny house does not have a loft so if you are not into climbing stairs or ladders this one is for you my queens! Or Kings…..

2. Dillon Beach Resort

Honestly coming up with this list was quite hard since I absolutely love tiny houses of all shapes and sizes!

Dillon’s Beach Resort I Dillon Beach, California

Second, but right up there with Escalante Escapes, is Dillon Beach Resort just steps away from Dillon Beach.

I absolutely fell in love with the huge windows overlooking the ocean, and the interior was all about the beach vibes.

Staying at Dillon Beach Resort gives you the best of both worlds of exploring the nearby beaches and the Point Reyes National Seashore, just 45 minutes away

Joshua Tree National Park, California

3. Castle House Estate

If Joshua Tree National park is on your summer trip bucket list, the best glamping spot on my top ten list are these whimsical tiny house castles just 20 minutes from the west park entrance!

Each of the tiny castle towers are a separate accommodation, although you can book both together if you are a larger party.

I stayed in Castle Tiny House #2 and the highlight of this glamping stay is that rooftop deck, that comes with an outside bed for nightly stargazing and amazing sunsets.

Being that it is a glamping property there are bathrooms available and an outdoor shower.

In addition to the two tiny castle guard towers, are three other yurts, and a tiny container home, with it’s own private bathroom.

4. Bus Tiny Home

This converted bus used to be an old 1960’s Greyhound bus, but now it’s a unique tiny house stay near Joshua Tree National Park.

If you are exploring the idea of tiny living and a bus conversion is on your list of possibilities then this glamping spot is the best of both worlds!

Why not check out if tiny living is for you and go on vacation?

Joshua Tree National Park I California

Death Valley National Park, California

Sandy Valley Ranch, Nevada

I found the best glamping spot for you to check out if a desert getaway is on your national park list!

Located on Sand Valley Ranch right on the border of California and Nevada is a ranch with plenty of glamping options to fit your style.

Whether you want to go full glamping in a tipi, a authentic covered wagon to remind you of the Old West or glamping in a tiny house.

Sandy Valley Ranch I Nevada

5. Peacock Tiny House

The Peacock Tiny House has it all, with this custom made deck to take in all the views of the surrounding desert.

It has a full kitchen, bathroom, living area, and a super cozy loft so you feel pampered after a day of exploring.

Within a 2 1/2 hour drive from Sandy Valley Ranch is the magical Death Valley National Park to explore……

Death Valley National Park I California

Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

7. Tiny Camp Sedona

Again so hard to choose where to put all these tiny houses on my best glamping list, but Tiny Camp Sedona is the perfect luxury getaway to enjoy both Sedona and the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.

It’s located in an area known as Oak Creek Canyon, ten minutes above the main town of Sedona, and just two hours from the South Rim, you really can do it all!

I really can’t decide what was my favorite, exploring all the trails and views of Sedona, a day trip up to the Grand Canyon, or simply chilling on the private deck of the tiny house enjoying star gazing at night….

Good news is you don’t have to choose…….

I highly recommend taking the time to hike up to Devils Bridge when in Sedona, the trail can be challenging towards the end but so well worth it for these views!

Zion National Park, Utah

8. Apple Hollow Cabins

Just 20 minutes from the East entrance of Zion National Park are 5 little tiny house cabins perfect for longer stays if you want to spend time to explore different parts of southern Utah….

Each cabin comes with a queen bedroom, full kitchen, spacious bathroom, washer/dryer, a pull out sofa in the living room, an outdoor area for grilling and evening smores over the firepit.

9. Cargo Tiny Homes

If you have been wondering what living in a 160 sq ft tiny container home might be like then heading out to California should be on your best glamping tiny house getaways list!

Situated on a family farm in Tulare, California two tiny container homes built by Cargo Homes based in Texas, is the perfect base camp to explore nearby Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park.

Crater National Park, Oregon

9. Camp Bend

Last, but certainly not least, on my top ten best glamping picks for tiny house getaways is in Bend Oregon.

You get the best of both worlds when staying in Bend,

With some of most amazing waterfalls, lakes, and hiking trails surrounding this nature mecca in Oregon.

This tiny house isn’t really close to Crater National Park, however, it’s well worth staying here to explore it all!

Also on the property are 5 other glamping vintage trailers to stay in as well.

If you want to live your Mad Men dreams then The Draper is the best glamping option, you just need to bring your own martinis!
