Soaring hawk tipi near bryce canyon – vrbo gas tax by state


You’ll love staying here because of the spectacular 360˚ views on a private 13-acre property. Conveniently and easily accessible directly off Hwy 89. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers. Enjoy spectacular views of Red Rock Cliffs and the Sevier River from your hilltop private TIPI. Fifteen minutes to Red Canyon and Scenic Byway 12, 30 min to Bryce Canyon, 45 min to Kodachrome Basin, 1 hour to Zion. * If you don’t see the date you want, check out our RUNNING DEER TIPI.

Staying in a TIPI is a form of camping, so bugs and critters may find their way into your TIPI. It can get cold at night however, there is a propane lava rock fire pit inside your TIPI (see photos) connected to a 120 gallon propane tank. The propane fire pit inside cranks a lot of heat out and also illuminates the TIPI inside. The TIPI is bolted and tied down onto a platform deck about 2ft off the ground, there’s no floor insulation so be sure to bring a good sleeping bag (and an extra blanket). Please note, currently there is no shower, water, or electricity on the property other than an outhouse which is located a short distance away from your TIPI. I provide a solar light but it’s a good idea to bring your own flashlights as a backup.

1. I provide 4 deluxe sleeping cots, two backrest chairs, colorful Southwestern style wool pillows, colorful wool floor rugs, and a propane gas lava rock open flame burner for heat (bring a long stem lighter). You need to bring a SLEEPING BAG or a good blanket (and a pillow if you need).

4. There’s no electricity onsite so, a portable battery charger for re-charging your phone is good to have. The solar powered camp light I provided does have one USB charging port, it works at night as long as it gets a good charge during the day.

7. If you want to burn a fire in the fire pit you’ll need to buy fire wood (most stores here sell wood), bring some newspaper to get it started easily. The fire pit area is shared between guests so there could be some burning materials left behind but it’s hard to say for sure.

9. Bring a trash bag, you’ll need to haul your trash out with you when you leave. Local garbage dumpsters are located 3 miles South just before the town of Hatch. Turn right onto the gravel road just after you see the power station and save animals billboard sign.

You will need a car, there is no public transportation. Property is accessed directly off Hwy. 89 (note speed limit is 65 mph). Note if you are planning to arrive after dark there may be deer and other animals crossing the roads, please drive carefully. My place is central to everything in Southern Utah: Bryce Canyon (30 min), Zion National Park (60 min), Red Canyon (15 min), Kodachrome Basin (45 min).

Hatch (4 miles South) and Panguitch (7 miles North) are the closet towns. Both offer great places to eat and some unique shopping stores. My favorite place to eat in Hatch is Cafe Adobe. Panguitch has several places I like to eat at, C-Stop Pizza, Cowboys Smokehouse, and the Flying M has a great breakfast menu. Note many local businesses are closed on Sundays and many restaurants close before 9pm. Major retail stores like Walmart are in Cedar City about 1 hour away.

Into fishing? About 7 miles South of my place along Hwy 89, Mammoth and Asay Creek are the head-water streams of the Sevier River. Asay Creek is designated as a Blue-Ribbon Stream, and Mammoth should be as well. Both streams have large fish populations and are easily accessed. There is over seven miles of public access on Mammoth Creek and several miles of access on Asay as well. Both streams are home to brown trout, with some rainbows in Asay, along with mountain white fish. View more
