Private spa-like bathhouses can be easily accessed from both sides of the property and come fully equipped with heated indoor-outoor private showers and high quality products. Enjoy an open-air sensory escape in the West Bathhouse with our outdoor private shower experience. Soak up the stars or natural sunlight after a long day of adventure. Due to current social distancing precautions, showers must be scheduled accordingly and can be done so through texting 435-201-8775.
Our pool and hot tub are located next to the Lodge. Pool towels are available as you enter the pool and we ask that you return them before you leave the pool area. We do not have a lifeguard on duty, so children must be accompanied by an adult at all times when enjoying the pool. Pool and hot tub hours are 8am to 10pm daily. We request that splashing and noise are kept to a minimum and no diving is allowed.
There is a self-service laundry room available to all guests in the East Meadow of the property. The Wash Room is open 24 hours and both washing and drying machines can be paid for by credit card. Laundry detergent is available for purchase in the General Store.
Well behaved dogs are welcome at Yonder Escalante at no additional fee (maximum two dogs per accommodation). A $200 fee will be applied to your bill if your pets cause any damage while on property.
Yonder Escalante is a non-smoking property. If you smoke inside your accommodation, you will be charged a minimum cleaning fee of $350. Due to fire dangers, anyone found smoking on property may be asked to check out. The non-smoking policy refers to cigarettes, cigars, cannabis, and e-cigarettes.
We welcome kids of all ages. We ask that parents hold their children to high standards of behaviour and respect for other guests including keeping noise down during quiet hours at the pool and drive-in so others can enjoy the park and its beauty. Yonder is in nature and it is especially important to keep eyes on the little ones to ensure everyone’s safety.
Our property is full of great activities to experience throughout your stay including nightly movies at the drive-in, campfire storytelling, and much more. Check with the front desk or on the Lodge bulletin board for a schedule of daily offerings.
DRIVE IN THEATER & CONCESSIONS
Watch a cult classic from the comfort of a vintage car! Car rentals available for booking at the General Store! Feel free to also join us with your own chair or bring along a folding chair offered in the cabins and airstreams.
Concession stand opens 30 min prior to the movie beginning and closes 30 min after the movie ends. Movie showtimes will be displayed on the bulletin board in the Lodge.
Guests have access to several experiences nearby for varying interests and adventure levels. Highlights include hiking the mysterious slot canyons or Upper Calf Creek, four-wheeling along Hole-in-the-Rock Road, driving the scenic route to Boulder, Utah, horseback riding along the alpine forests and red rock hoodoos of Bryce Canyon, and water activities like boating, canoeing and fishing at Wide Hollow Reservoir within the Escalante Petrified Forest. Yonder’s backyard is the perfect hiking and exploration spot, featuring sprawling wilderness with views of the surrounding cliffs and magical hoodoos, and abundant petrified wood, septarian nodules, Native American artifacts, and nearly every color of sandstone.
