Luxury Adventures: Located on the edge of Canyonlands National Park in remote Moab, Utah, the Camelot Lodge promises "the adventure of a lifetime" for wilderness lovers. Camelot Lodge is not a "bed-and-breakfast," but an "adventure lodge" for people who love active vacations.
Camelot Lodge offers only four units, so guests can enjoy the stark beauty of the southwestern desert in seclusion, without having to stand in long lines or push through crowds. All units are fully furnished and stocked, with private entrances, individual covered decks overlooking the Colorado River and the region's famous red rock cliffs, and outside grills with sideburners.
On-site hosts personally help guests plot out their adventure vacation. Guided hikes take guests through remote areas of southwestern desert, where they can view petroglyphs and learn about desert fauna and flora. Water enthusiasts can opt for a jet boat tour of Dead Horse Point State Park. Mountain biking, four-wheel drives, disc golf, canoeing and swimming are also among the myriad of activities available.
And of course, there are the camels that are the lodge's namesake. Guests are taught camel handling, saddling, camel commands and steering, then get to ride their camels through Utah's majestic desert landscape. Some guests are so enamored with the camels that they return annually to ride their favorite, specific animal.
Rates, accommodation specifics and more information are available on Camelot Lodge's website.
