This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
Tucked deep in the heart of Hurrah Pass guarded by red rock bluffs and the roaring Colorado River lies one of the hidden treasures of Utah — the Camelot Lodge.
When I first met and visited with Terry and Marcee Moore, the owners and operators of Camelot Adventure Lodge, I knew they were living their dream. Terry had a background in animal training for the movies, and he had four camels he worked with in various films. Marcee grew up in Alaska and was with a cruise line for 10 years.
After operating a remote lodge in Alaska, the couple decided they'd like to move somewhere a little warmer. Terry is a native of Utah, so it seemed natural to come and look here. After looking at various sites, they finally encountered the remote Hurrah Pass, south of Moab. They instantly knew Moab was the perfect place, and the name "Hurrah Pass" was appropriate. Both said, "Hurrah!" and they bought the land.
For three years they hauled material 18 miles from town to build the Camelot Adventure Lodge, a full-service lodge that serves all three meals. The rooms are beautifully decorated, with spectacular views of the Colorado River.
Camelot Adventure Lodge is one of the only places in North America where visitors can travel Moab's desert in a caravan of camels. Visitors ride camel-back through the valley floors of the canyons on this one-of-a-kind trek. These camels not only provide their riders with an ancient-style experience, but they also give the lodge its good name.
Terry and Marcee have recently added an 18-hole disc golf course to the Camelot Adventure package. The course extends over 50 acres of surrounding land. Players from around the world have come to play the red sand course, which allows them to throw over canyons, play along the Colorado River and scramble over slick rock. It's no wonder that many of them have called the course "one-of-a-kind" and "the best course ever."
