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

Your adventure at Base Camp begins with an unforgettable ride in over Hurrah Pass, and the awesomeness continues from there: if you're into hiking, kayaking, atv-ing, disc-golf, critter-watching, awesome views, geocaching, stargazing, geology, fossils, or just getting off the beaten path, Base Camp has it all. Tom is a consummate story-teller and is intimately acquainted with the area; his passion... More

Base Camp provided us with a wonderful experience for us and our children. Tom is a very generous host, friendly and open. We took a trip on ATVs, and went swimming in the river. The landscape is beautiful, and unique. Tortoise was also fun to watch, and we had a great disc golf game. We were there at the end... More

I have no problem with any of the reviews except the one that's eight or nine years old and had nothing to do with me, was a bed and breakfast and did camel tours, but the geniuses at Tripadvisor won't delete. Reading through the others they are what they are but if you don't like your pillow, say something, I... More

Definitely NOT your typical stay at a lodge. The scenic but challenging ride to Tom's lodge is only the start of a grand, off-the-beaten-track, unusual, exhilarating yet relaxing, educational (if you like), and FUN adventure. Tom's hospitality and his story telling will make you wish you had more time to spend at this near-Shangri-La by the Colorado River.

We had an amazing time at Base Camp. The setting is remote, bizarre, beautiful, and quiet. Tom is a great host - eager to help and keep you safe in this weird environment, full of stories, and not too much in your face when you want privacy. Free use of kayaks, ATVs, etc. Can't wait to go back. If you... More

One of the most beautiful places on earth, had a awesome time hunting for fossils, visiting with chipmunks, birds, lizards, squirrels and the resident animal guests Kobae the tortoise, What's Up & Little Up, the lizard pair, exploring the hills hiking and riding to various locations on the ATV's. Tom, the host, could not be more welcoming, a real down... More

Spent 2 days at Base Camp with Tom, his animal buddies, and two other fellow travelers. Tom made us feel right at home and extended every possible courtesy. When I asked if he rented out his pair of ATV's for trips into the countryside, he replied "Nah- just go ahead and use them- Ill show you where to go on... More

If you like waking up in the redrock desert on the banks of the Colorado, views of Deadhorse Pt., ATVs at the ready, kayaks waiting for launch, 100 lb tortoise to spend quality time with on the porch when you are not feeding a lizard on the wall, stargazing, and playing a killer disc golf course, then this is your...

Had an awesome time, can't wait to go back. Tom & Kobae are real characters, we had a great time kayaking, 4 wheeling and hiking. Tom is a great guide and has some good stories. bring extra food and be prepared to extend your stay because you don't want to leave.
