GARDEN CITY, UTAH – For the fathers who love to camp with their kids, Conestoga Ranch invites families to take Dad glamping this Father’s Day weekend at Bear Lake, Utah’s premiere luxury camping destination. The ranch has lined up a program of music, competitions, and even a free barbecue dinner for Dad to celebrate fathers all weekend long in Garden City.

Father’s Day weekend festivities kick off on June 17 with a Western Barbecue at the resort’s Campfire Grill Restaurant. The barbecue dinner is complimentary for fathers.
