Camping in the winter may sound like a challenge but fortunately, many campgrounds across Utah offer small cabins for weekend winter camping trips. The following camping spots are your best bet if you want to stay warm while camping in the winter!
While this campground isn’t necessarily located in the mountains, it is located just outside of them, and close to some of Utah Valley’s most important cities! This KOA campground is located just off of Utah’s main freeway for easy access. The campground features camping cabins as well as traditional tent sites and RV sites that will give you a nice place to return to after a day of cross-country skiing or snowshoeing in the nearby Wasatch Mountains.
This KOA is fancy. Yes, you can rent a camper cabin, a traditional tent site, or a deluxe cabin, but you can also let your joints relax after a long day of hiking in the Wasatch Mountains in the campground’s hot tub. If you don’t like hot tubs, consider the sauna. Either way, you’ll love your experience at Salt Lake City KOA.
Another Moab campground, Canyonlands RV Resort and Campground is (unsurprisingly) located nearer Canyonlands National Park. The sister campground to Archview RV Resort and Campground. This wonderful site features incredible cozy cabins that your whole family will love.
River’s Edge at Deer Creek is a one-of-a-kind campground that features RV sites, RV hook-ups, yurts, and cozy cabins. Open year round, the campground is only 15 minutes away from Park City’s Historic Main Street. This means that if you want to go skiing in Park City in the morning and showshoeing in Heber in the late afternoon, you’ve got it made.
Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort is the jack of all trades when it comes to camping. Visitors can rent a large cabin, camp in tents, camp in Conestoga and Western wagons, camp in a “cowboy cabin,” camp in RVs, or experiment with “glamping” (aka “glamorous camping). Located near Zion National Park, the resort is the Disneyland of camping, no matter the season.
Most Utahans will know what Big Rock Candy Mountain is from the catchy jingle they were taught when they were in elementary school. Little do most Utahans know, however, that Big Rock Candy Mountain is also the name of a resort and campground in Sevier County. Located near Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Fremont Indian State Park, the resort offers cabin rentals, camping cabin rentals, RV campsites, as well as lodging within refurbished train cabooses.
