Our Story

Conestoga Ranch is the creation of five partners who share an admiration for Bear Lake. Eager to acquaint more families with Garden City, Utah’s natural beauty and recognizing the growing popularity of “glamping” around the world, they came together to develop a luxury camping resort overlooking the vivid blue waters. They set out to design a glamping destination where families, groups and couples could camp in complete comfort, without having to sacrifice precious vacation time prepping for their outdoor vacation.

Dismissing the notion that camp food has to be synonymous with packaged meals, they declared the resort would offer gourmet cuisine, and so they built the Campfire Grill Restaurant in a stunning, open-air dining pavilion with views of the lake and ranch.

Unable to find anything in the marketplace that met their vision for guest accommodations, the partners decided to custom manufacture the unique tents and wagons themselves. For this, they launched another venture, Conestoga Wagon Company. The wagons are designed to be the staple of the resort’s Old West ambiance, and are appealing to kids and adults. The partners made painstaking efforts to search the West for authentic 1800 circa furnishings to complete the interior design of each Grand Tent – no two are alike!

Finally, the partners decided to add a host of upscale, on-site amenities to make Conestoga Ranch a true resort which opened in 2015.
