What activities are there to do at Wind Walker Homestead?
The idea behind Wind Walker Homestead is to bring friends and family to do as much as you want or as little and just relax and decompress from the city life. We are adding additional activities each month, but as of summer 2021, we have the pool, ranch volleyball court, horseshoes, cornhole, firepit, and 170 acres to hike and explore. In addition to the on-site activities, there are off-site activities like Maple canyon climbing, fishing, biking, hiking, ATV trails up in the Manti LaSal National forest, golf, kayaking at Palisades state park, and much more.

About 12 minutes.
Can I set up a tent and camp on the property?
We have several campsites that are close to the dining/rec hall bathroom and shower or you can dry camp in many others.
Would the property be good for youth camps?
Yes, we have hosted several boys and girls camps. The 8000 square foot lawn area, firepit that is next to the 2400 square foot dining/rec hall, and kitchen make this an ideal spot for youth camps in good or bad weather. The close-by Ranchettes that have full kitchens and bathrooms make a great retreat for the adult leaders after a day of being with energetic youth.

The 1000 square foot Ranchette units have kitchens, 3 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, and sleep from 3 to 12.
