Get Back To Nature At Backland, An Arizona Glamping Resort Near The Grand Canyon
By Melissa Mahoney|Published November 03, 2023
I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I grew up in New England before moving to SoCal for several years. I then lived in NYC or a year before moving to AZ in 2009. I worked in the entertainment industry for many years of my adult life and I love photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world! Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream.
As local travel experts, we know what travelers are looking for when it comes to finding the perfect accommodations for their next trip. To compile our lists, we scour the internet to find properties with excellent ratings and reviews, desirable amenities, nearby attractions, and that something special that makes a destination worthy of traveling for.
I’ve lived in Arizona since 2009 and have a busy life with two kids. I am always up for an adventure and the state of Arizona is an amazing place to find one. Recently, I became obsessed with the idea of glamping and found the perfect spot in Williams.
More akin to a high-end hotel than a camping resort close to the Grand Canyon, Backland is an exceptional destination for a getaway. Its remote location offers ultimate tranquility and the ability to unplug and disconnect from reality for a while.
Close to the Grand Canyon in the town of Williams, to get here is not all that obvious. In fact, it’s so off the grid that entering “Backland” into your GPS will not actually lead you there. To add to both the allure and mystique of this luxury glamping resort, I received an email several days prior to my stay with instructions to download a specific app, enter a code, and then the directions to find it would be provided. This also makes it seem like quite an exclusive place, even a privilege, to spend the night.
Once my partner and I arrived at the awe-inspiring property, it was like discovering an oasis in the middle of nowhere. We were transfixed. From the moment we started our journey to the moment we left, we realized it had been a long time since either of us felt that relaxed.
Did you know that Backland can host small weddings? If you or someone you know is looking for a one-of-a-kind wedding destination, consider Backland in Williams!
For those of you looking for a camping resort near the Grand Canyon, Backland is an exceptional place to be. Quiet and serene, not to mention absolutely comfortable, there’s no other place in the state quite like it. Rediscover some inner peace with a stay here. You can book a night or longer on the Backland Luxury Camping website and be sure to follow the Backland Facebook page as well as Backland’s Instagram account.
