I love being in nature.
But I also love the comforts of my king-sized bed and modern plumbing.
So, glamping at Conestoga Ranch in Bear Lake sounded like an ideal way to enjoy nature with our little kids.
Our tent had a king-sized bed for us and bunk beds for the kids. There was a bathroom with a bathtub and shower, toilet, and sink.
There were electrical outlets and heaters.
We had our own personal campfire for private marshmallow-roasting sessions and soaking in the scenery of Bear Lake.
We ate all of our meals at the open-air Campfire Grill restaurant. I mean, I love a good tin-foil dinner, but this food was gourmet. We loved it.
The bookworm in me especially appreciated that the bills were delivered in old books.
Our kids loved the resort’s full-sized playground and swing set, lassoing course, games tent and general store. We also had fun doing yoga, bike riding, and stargazing. (We got such a good view of Jupiter!)
Our favorite nearby family activities: Fresh Bear Lake raspberry shakes at Quick N Tasty, bike rides on Bear Lake’s road bike route, go-kart rides, playing at the lake, hiking on the Wind Cave Trail and exploring the Paris Ice Cave.
