National park accommodations generally fall into a few basic categories: camping, glamping, inns or lodges, and hotels. Some national parks also come with a homier option: Airbnbs. Take Canyonlands National Park. Roughly 30 minutes outside of the well-loved desert town of Moab, Utah, Canyonlands is one national park that’s situated in close proximity to quite a few impressive Airbnbs. Sure, you could easily find a nice hotel near Canyonlands National Park, but why not pick the Canyonlands National Park Airbnb that best suits your style — from quintessential cabins, to private yurts, to large and luxurious rentals that can fit the whole family.

Slick Rock Retreat House
This four-bedroom Airbnb is about as close to Canyonlands as it could be without actually being inside the park. Located right off US Route 191, a little south of Moab, the property provides tons of space to spread out — both indoors and outdoors. The fire pit, hot tub, and grill area with alfresco seating are definite highlights of the outdoor spaces while the entire interior is immaculate, from the fully equipped modern kitchen to the finely decorated bedrooms and three-and-a-half pristine bathrooms. With one king bed, two queen beds, and a bunk-style single and double bed combo in the fourth bedroom, sleeping configurations are easy to figure out no matter what kind of group you’re traveling with.

The Lodge at the Redrock River Ranch
Roughly 30 minutes from Moab and Canyonlands National Park, this three-bedroom lodge at the Redrock River Ranch sits on a private 138-acre plot that opens to uninterrupted views of the Colorado River. What makes this sustainably-minded lodge especially unique is its cave-style dwellings — complete with private bathrooms, heat, and air-conditioning — which are complemented by a pleasant main lodge. The coolest feature, however, is one many guests probably won’t use: a private airstrip that allows guests to fly right onto the property. In total, the lodge can accommodate up to 10 guests, but you should note that there are other lodgings on the property that may or not be occupied during your stay.

Thimble Rock Point A-Frame
This two-bedroom Airbnb is the sort of place you’re tempted to book just by looking at it. According to the hosts, the A-frame design is a nod to the local geology, with an angular roof that resembles the steep walls of the canyon that surrounds the cabin. The interior is modern and comfortable, but the location is what really stands out — it’s not the closest property to Canyonlands, being located across the Colorado border, but if you’re up for a day trip, the national park is reachable in roughly 2.5 hours by car. As for the property itself, public lands surround the secluded private lot, so you can enjoy Rocky Mountain terrain and Utah’s largest park in a single trip. Not that guests are permitted to bring one pet for an additional fee.

Moab Golf Course Townhome
Ideal for a couple or a family with two small kids who’ll be comfortable in the bunk beds in the family room, this two-bedroom townhome is located on the local golf course near downtown Moab. The Airbnb underwent an extensive renovation in March 2023, introducing new appliances, kitchen equipment, a rooftop deck, and more. For families with young children, the rental includes baby locks on lower cabinets, a baby gate in the family room, an adjustable Stokke highchair, and a pack-n-play. Beyond its proximity to Canyonlands National Park, for outdoor recreation, guests of the townhome also get seasonal access to the shared but relatively private La Camino community pool, which only serves only 18 condos.

There’s also a central bathhouse on the property with four bathrooms and hot showers.

Moab Mountain Cabin
From 7,600 feet up, you can see six different mountain peaks in the La Sal range from this two-bedroom cabin, whether you’re lounging on the upper or lower decks, manning the grill for an alfresco dinner, or winding down by the fire pit in the evening. Yet despite its remote location, the cabin is only 18 miles from downtown Moab and about 50 miles from Canyonlands National Park, which means you get reach the park in about an hour and a half by car. On the other hand, because you’re pretty far removed from the rest of the world here, the cabin comes fully equipped with both basic and extra amenities, from a washer-dryer and complimentary bath products to books and games for entertainment. Up to two pets are allowed with an additional fee, and the hosts recommend that road-trippers have 4WD to navigate the steep and winding roads, particularly in the winter.

Crooked Bindi Ranch Glamping
Crooked Bindi Ranch is an 80-acre glampsite with two luxury tents that are positioned roughly 70 yards apart from one another, so even if you’re not alone on the property, you’re guaranteed to feel like you have it pretty much to yourself. This is especially true considering both tents come with open-air bathrooms that are built into the red-rock landscape, a stone’s throw from the private patios. The ranch itself is conveniently located about nine miles from downtown Moab and seven miles from Canyonlands National Park. For mountain bike enthusiasts, the trailhead for the Amasa Back Mountain Bike Trail is a short two-mile drive north from the ranch gate.

Stargazer Bell Tent
Spread across 22 acres, Glamping Canyonlands is serious about its commitment to sustainability. It’s entirely solar-powered, including the communal bathroom with its complimentary organic bath products, and relies exclusively on collected water. (On that note, guests are advised to bring their own drinking water and should be aware that the tents aren’t insulated, so there’s no temperature control outside of natural breezes and extra blankets.) But that doesn’t mean that the tents don’t come with amenities — fun touches such as personal hammocks, fire pits, grills, picnic tables, board games, phone charging packs, and a one-hour nightly sauna session are all included in the booking fee. (You can also participate in Sunday morning yoga and bi-monthly astronomy tours for a fee.) Luckily, this particular tent is the best place to stargaze on the property, thanks to its unique sunroof — bring a telescope if you have one.
