Covered Wagon Trip

Will be in Utah for week to 10 days in June, 2013 and thought grandchildren 10 and 8 would enjoy

1) short covered wagon trips (1-2 days) but couldn't find any in internet - Anyone know of any

2) Did see occasional reference to a Sundown Ranch Covered wagon dinner but not sure it still exists as couldn't find a website- anyone know anything about it?

3) Also thought of sleeping in a Tipi but seems like you need own bedding/sleeping bag etc. which we will not have

Any info appreciated

Someone else may have more detail, but I know that there is teepee lodging adjacent to Ruby's Inn at Bryce Canyon and I thought they had covered wagon tours. You for sure wouldn't want to do it for more than a few hours, though. Try checking with Ruby's unless someone else has more detail here.

Yes there are teepees at Rubys, but you need your own sleeping bags.The only other teepees I know of are old hotels in AZ and CA called the Wigwam, which are like concrete teepees.

As for covered wagons, don't know of any rides, but I know there are some conestoga wagons you can sleep in at the Bar10 ranch.The only thing about the Bar 10 is its 80 miles down a dirt road from St George or a short flight from Vegas to their airstrip, or arrive by raft. I am actually looking into this place as a stopover on a dirt bike trip in the spring.They also have regular lodge rooms there.
