BEAR LAKE, UTAH’S CAMPFIRE GRILL RESTAURANT WELCOMES NEW CHEF AND UPDATED MENUS FOR THE SUMMER 2016 SEASON

Fresh, Local Ingredients to be Served in Conestoga Ranch’s Open-Air Restaurant Beginning May 13

GARDEN CITY, UTAH – The Campfire Grill Restaurant, located at Conestoga Ranch, is set to open for the summer season on May 13 with a new chef and new menu creations for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Chef Vincent Liberato, who joins Bear Lake’s glamping destination after having been a chef at several fine hotels and restaurants in Pennsylvania, has crafted a menu that focuses on traditionally influenced American cuisine using fresh and local ingredients. He also plans to bring back some guest favorites.

The timber-framed, open-air restaurant was well received last summer by locals and visitors, who welcomed the more elevated, healthier dining venue at Bear Lake. Chef Vincent’s goal is to create flavorful, varied cuisine and to become known for offering the best burger in the region. The lunch and dinner menus feature a Bear Lake Wagyu beef burger. The beef is also used in the Black + Blue dinner appetizer, which is Wagyu sosatie (a South African meat skewer) with grilled tomato, blue cheese and crostini. Campfire Grill Restaurant will offer something for even the most discerning foodie with selections that include pasta, seafood and chicken. There is also a kids’ menu for lunch and dinner.

Excited to realize his dream of experiencing the West, Chef Vincent says it was an easy decision to spend the summer at Conestoga Ranch. “While glamping elevates the camping experience, I wanted to create an accessible, but gourmet menu with a hint of cowboy cuisine that complements the higher end yet friendly experience the ranch offers guests,” he explains. “Campfire Grill’s beautiful, open setting makes for a unique and relaxed dining experience.”

The wood-fired, artisan pizzas will return this summer with some new offerings like BBQ Chicken (pulled chicken, bbq sauce, mozzarella, caramelized onions). Additional dinner highlights are BBQ Rubbed Pork Chop and Hickory Smoked Salmon with a maple glaze.

The lunch menu features a sampling of fresh salads and sandwiches. “It’s a great mix of lighter and heartier items, and we have the ability to accommodate bus tours and groups who may be passing through to see Bear Lake going to or from Yellowstone and Teton national parks,” Liberato says.

A full-service breakfast menu has been designed to offer Bear Lake enthusiasts delicious, satisfying options to fuel up for a day of water and mountain recreation. Offerings range from granola with seasonal fruit and Greek yogurt to three egg omelets and brioche French toast. A continental breakfast will be available at Shake at the Lake when the restaurant is closed.

Campfire Grill Restaurant is open May 13 to October 2 to both guests of Conestoga Ranch and the public and will offer live music on weekends. For more info, menus and hours, visit http://conestogaranch.com/wp/campfire-grill/

UTAH’S NEWEST GLAMPING DESTINATION, CONESTOGA RANCH, ADDS BEAUTIFUL AMENITIES FOR WEDDINGS, MEETINGS AND PRIVATE FUNCTIONS

GARDEN CITY, UTAH – Conestoga Ranch, a high-end glamping resort in Northern Utah is poised to become Bear Lake’s premiere destination for weddings, corporate retreats and a variety of other private events. An expansive reception tent is being constructed to maximize the 18-acre property’s stunning view of Bear Lake’s turquoise-colored waters. A new Royal Tent Suite will offer the resort’s most luxurious, spacious and private accommodations for couples getting married, honeymooners, or anyone seeking an even more upscale lodging experience than the Grand Tents offer.

The Event Tent will be perched on the hillside overlooking Bear Lake and the surrounding mountains. With 1,700 square feet of space and 15 foot ceiling heights at its peak, the Event Tent can comfortably accommodate up to 100 guests seated at rounds or 125 theatre/ceremony style. The resort’s onsite event planner can assist in all aspects of coordination for weddings, corporate groups, family reunions, and any other celebration. The multi-function space features built-in power to accommodate any creative expression or need, ranging from a wedding band, DJ or corporate presentations and slide shows. The tent measures 50 by 20 feet when the canvas sides are closed, and 50 by 34 feet with all sides open.   Two restrooms will be located in an adjacent structure.

“The Event Tent promises to be Bear Lake’s most spectacular private party venue,” says Tom Hendrick, one of the owners of Conestoga Ranch. “After our opening last year, many guests inquired about our private function capabilities, so in response to all the interest, we designed the Event Tent to be customizable for a vast range of celebrations and gatherings.”

The resort will plan memorable weekends for wedding parties and their guests with programming that includes a welcome reception, outdoor adventure activities, a pig roast and line dancing rehearsal dinner, groom’s luncheon, a romantic ceremony and wedding reception, and farewell breakfast. The resort’s event planner works with each couple to impeccably manage every last detail of a wedding weekend to forever cherish.

Designed to offer a romantic, honeymoon-style experience, the new Royal Tent Suite provides ample space for brides to get ready for their big day, a comfortable seating area, king-size bed with plush linens, and a private, outdoor seating area complete with lounge chairs and a campfire. The en suite bathroom features a cast-iron soaking tub and separate shower.

Recognizing its appeal to large families and groups, Conestoga Ranch is adding more wagon circles so those visiting together can create their own enclave and enjoy close proximity around a shared firepit.

Conestoga Ranch offers concierge services to create itineraries for groups that include on-site meals, and activities and excursions such as horseback riding, ATV and water equipment rentals.
