Conestoga Ranch is at Bear Lake, known as the Caribbean of the Rockies.

Utah’s most luxurious and popular glamping destination, Conestoga Ranch, is a full-service resort at beautiful Bear Lake that attracts those seeking lake and mountain recreation, as well as a convenient halfway point between Salt Lake City and the Yellowstone National Park area. New offerings this summer that are proving to be popular with guests, include:

• Blue Waters Spa and Wellness Center for massage treatments and yoga practices
• A Conestoga wagon option that comfortably sleeps four with a king-size bed and bunk bed
• Traditional tents with electricity and propane heaters in wagons
• Sunday brunch buffet at the open-air Campfire Restaurant for just $14.95 per person

“We are essentially the only resort located halfway between Salt Lake City and the Tetons and Yellowstone National Park, making us a popular stopover,” says Conestoga Ranch General Manager Clark Thornock. “We also host many visitors taking a side trip from Park City and Salt Lake or who are looking to beat the heat of hotter regional climates with invigorating lake and mountain adventure. Guests enjoy a relaxing stay in our unique, furnished accommodations that come with linens and bath products and array of resort amenities to make their visit convenient and comfortable.”

Campfire Grill Restaurant

The Campfire Grill Restaurant elevates the Bear Lake dining experience with gourmet meals consisting of fresh, local products. Saturday nights feature live music by local bands that perform country, folk, and classic rock music styles. New menu items this summer include a Rendered Duck Breast with black pepper citrus glaze and Bear Lake Wagyu Meatloaf with Texas toast and white portabella mushroom gravy. Another new offering is the Wednesday BBQ and Brew Special, a $19.95 BBQ dinner with entrée and two sides and a selection of $3 beer. The featured special will vary each week and will be announced on the Campfire Grill’s website, Facebook page and Instagram.

Enjoying Utah’s breathtaking night sky goes hand-in-hand with glamping, so several weekends per month, Conestoga Ranch offers weekend Star Parties guided by local astronomers with the use of telescopes. Groups like family reunions and corporate retreats can also make special reservations for private Star Parties.

The 2018 summer season goes through September 30. The luxury camping destination appeals to and can accommodate families, groups of friends, couples, weddings, and corporate retreats.

Promotion for Early Season Glamping Reservations Available Until May 1

GARDEN CITY, UTAH – Entering its third season as Utah’s premiere, luxury glamping destination, Conestoga Ranch has lined up an opening weekend that offers guests a wealth of diversions and unique dining experiences for the whole family. The May 19 to 21 celebration, adjacent to Utah’s turquoise-colored Bear Lake, is an all-inclusive weekend, starting at $140 per person for adults and $85 for kids under 12 (taxes, alcohol, and food & beverage service charge are additional). A 15 percent savings on reservations made by May 1 for the early season period, May 19 through June 15, is also available. The code early17pp may be used for online bookings or mentioned when making a phone reservation.

The opening weekend festivities will kick off with a welcome reception at Campfire Grill Restaurant on Friday, May 19, providing a forum for guests to mingle. A tasting dinner will follow, featuring a preview of Chef Vincent Liberato’s new menu items and last season’s favorites. After dinner, Utah State University astral expert Tom Westre will lead a stargazing session to give guests a tour of Bear Lake’s beautiful night sky. Visitors can close the evening with complimentary s’mores at their private fire pits.

Additional activities planned throughout the weekend include a yoga practice and country swing dance lessons. Off-site recreation like horseback riding, ATV rides, boating, fishing, and mountain biking can be arranged for an additional charge with Conestoga Ranch’s activity partners. Saturday’s lunch will feature Campfire Grill Restaurant’s all-you-can-eat artisan pizza, and a pig roast accompanied by live music will make for a festive dinner that evening. A farewell breakfast will be provided Sunday morning.

Conestoga Ranch’s new General Manager, Clark Thornock, says, “We look forward to continuing our tradition of offering a luxury resort experience that exposes guests to the magical aspects of camping without the cumbersome planning and gear that traditional camping often entails. Our friendly staff and on-site amenities make for a wonderful, unique getaway for couples, families, and groups.”

Last year’s addition of the Event Tent has rendered Conestoga Ranch a popular destination for corporate groups and weddings. The resort also regularly hosts family reunions, bachelorette parties, and other celebrations. It is conveniently located two and a half hours from Salt Lake City International Airport and halfway between Park City, UT and Jackson, WY, making the ranch an ideal stop when traveling to/from Yellowstone National Park.
