Arizona Glamping Guide

We had the best escape from the summer at Travel Backland Glamping in Arizona. 


Backland is the ultimate glamping getaway, perfect for families, couples, girls getaways, or a guys weekend. It is a drive off the beaten path, but well worth the what you’ll experience while there.


Aaron and I immediately loved how secluded the Backland property is, how peaceful it is, and how serene the surroundings are. We were greeted by Chase, who was a gem, so friendly and helpful and had great recommendations of things to do in the area including hikes, lakes to visit, the history of the property, tours and excursions we could do, or activities to do at the resort. 


We checked into our tent suite and could not believe how spacious it was, but the absolute best part was the panoramic views of the 160 acres of nature. Backland’s custom built tents have floor to ceiling windows, (don’t worry there are blackout shades too) and doors that open up to a patio where you can experience the Arizona sunrise and sunset and take in the views.


The Sky Suites, where we stayed, have the most panoramic skylights above your bed. There is nothing like sleeping under the stars from the comfort of a luxury bed. 


While we were at Backland we enjoyed dinner at the scratch-made restaurant on property that boasts a seasonal menu that changes nightly. You can dine inside by the fireplace or choose to have dinner outside by the beach.  Each night Backland offers complimentary smores kits and star gazing with some pretty fancy telescopes.


The reception area offers items for purchase, a few snacks, drinks, candy, and other necessities as well as the use of  books, games, puzzles, all available for your enjoyment.


We spent our days hiking around the Backland property, visiting out the original homestead, kayaking in the pond, and just relaxing in the cool fresh air of Arizona. You fish, take the time to read a good book on a water-side lounge chair, enjoy bird watching , play croquet, or venture off  property for even more adventures.


We recommend (thanks to Chase) a hike to Sycamore Falls, a visit to WhiteHorse Lake, or if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, Sycamore Point for  absolutely breathtaking views.


The resort is is close enough to the the Grand Canyon for a day trip and you can also book guided tours through the resort. Helicopter tours are offers through Papillon Heli Tours or Grand Canyon Air Tours, and Pink Jeep Tours offers trips to the Grand Canyon. Other ideas while you’re in Northern Arizona include visiting  Sedona or nearby Williams, home of the famous Route 66.
