Field Station offers all the outdoor gear you'll need for an epic adventure in Moab, UT

The founder of AutoCamp has launched a new hotel experience for adventure-lovers called Field Station, aiming to be a one-stop-shop for the active outdoor community. At the first property, in Moab, they’re renovating an existing lodge that’s in a prime location for exploring the nearby natural beauty in Arches National Park. The hotel fuses the idea of a design-driven boutique hotel with the adventure community, offering all the bells and whistles for the outdoors, including Black Diamond equipment rentals, onsite guides, and educational programming.

Much like their Autocamp properties, great social areas are at the forefront, including a communal biergarten and cafe, open to both guests and the local community alike. There’s also a pool on property—a welcome amenity for the desert—for the perfect post-adventure plunge.

The design of the rooms, which start at $159 per night during off-peak times, call on minimalist Scandinavian industrial influences, with clean lines and raw materials providing a contrast to the natural world outside. A selection of rooms also feature Black Diamond portaledges offering guests the experience of what it feels like to sleep in a hanging bed used by rock climbers on cliff faces. There are also unique storage options in-room, designed specifically for gear storage.

For van lifers who rent out a spot to recharge and refresh after time on the road, there’s access to communal areas, Wi-Fi, vehicle hookups, communal bathrooms, and showers during their stay.

Guests will have access to some of the unique programming, too, which includes classes on survival skills, the local history of Indigenous Peoples, backcountry clinics, and more. 

Coming down the track there’ll be two additional locations opening within the next year in Joshua Tree and South Lake Tahoe, giving us another great excuse to get outside.
