....for fear more people will "discover" this hidden gem.... My husband and I spent 2 nights at Base Camp recently and had a wonderful experience. This place is truly special—from the location/scenery to the owner, Tom—it was an unforgettable trip. Base Camp is beyond “off the beaten path”, over an hour from Moab down Kane Creek Rd and over Hurrah... More

Why do I fear leaving a review that properly describes this Shangra La? Because it could become "too discovered" and change. This is your own private Utah. Far better than the parks. Beautiful, wild, comfortable, affordable, and with a host who goes above and beyond at every turn. We spend five nights, and five amazing days at Basecamp with husband... More

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of spending three nights at basecamp with Tom. He was the most generous host you could want but this is not a B&B experience, so you should set your expectations. You make your own food, and if you are lucky like we were you meet and eat with others who are staying... More

After weeks of research, I decided on the Basecamp as the destination for our group's trip. In some ways, our expectations were more than met, and in other ways, they weren't. The main message here is that Tom is a wonderful and generous person who runs a fantastic off- the - grid lodge in the canyonlands. The lodges website did... More

Tom H, Owner at Base Camp, responded to this review

Thank you for the nice comments. I sold the two seater ATVs last year and bought four seater side by sides so families can all go in the same vehicle. When I did that I changed the web site and eliminated any mention of ATVs and changed it to side by sides. I'm guessing the site was read prior to... More

We thought we would drive down from Salt Lake to santa Fe and stop for a couple of nights in Moab. I reserved a room here thinking it would be different and somewhat outside of town. I went with my two sons and a guest. Little did I know it was quite a bit outside of town in the middle... More

We stayed here for 3 days. This will be one of those "once-in-a-lifetime" trips. We are adventurous travelers and the Best Western is my idea of hell. Just getting to this remote location requires a good deal of effort, don't try it in a minivan. Tom graciously came and "rescued" us, when it was clear we couldn't possibly make it... More

3 of us ran in on the trails and had a perfect night at the lodge. Clean, nice rooms, and spectacular location off the grid. The owner is a character, and we absolutely enjoyed his stories and thoughtful hospitality. The pet tortoise named Koebe is also a character, and greeted us before saying enough of all the noise and retreating... More

I took my son and daughter for a spring break trip to southern Utah and we spent two nights here. We had a great time but there's so much to do we'll have to go back! The owner, Tom, knows the area like the back of his hand. Just tell him what you like to do and he'll point you... More

This was a beyond awesome lodging experience. Keep in mind - we are backpackers & backcountry campers so we have a unique perspective. Our family of 4 stayed in the hogan closest to the lodge and had the time of our lives just exploring the area on our own with helpful advice from Tom, the owner. The trip over Hurrah... More

4x4 drive and loving sense of adventure strongly recommended. This is possibly the most magical vacation I have ever taken, and 5 months later I still find myself thinking of it almost daily. Tom is a unique, lively, accommodating and generous host who if you're lucky, will offer to take you up to the wind caves. His friends (aka "critters")... More
