We rented a van with them last year and had an amazing experience! We drove from SLC to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. We absolutely loved the flexibility it provided. The van set up is super optimized as well, with lots of storage space. The pump sink was great to have for cleaning dishes at the end of the night. Mattress was super cozy. We had our stove die on us while we were out and about, purchased new one on the go and got refunded by Lost Campers at the end of the trip. Be sure to check out their free shelf before heading out on your trip to take advantage of items folks left behind from their trips. Will definitely be renting with them again in the future for an Arizona trip!read more

Our experience with Lost Campers totally exceeded our expectations. We had the camper for 11 days and traveled around Utah and a bit of Arizona. Camper travel is our favorite way of getting from point A to point B. The flexibility, the freedom... it's incomparable! The staff were incredibly friendly, helpful, and kind, and we never had an issue with the van. Highly recommend these guys.read more

We had the experience of a lifetime with Lost Campers! We've wanted to do a 2-week roadtrip through Wyoming, Montana and Idaho for quite some time, but it has been tough to plan since we live in Boston. We weren't keen on flying with our camping equipment, nor did we want to have to rent a car and then rent our equipment from a different company; it was expensive and too much of a hassle. RVs were always an option, but neither of us had experience towing a trailer, nor did we like the price tag of the larger rentals. Lost Campers provided us with the convenience of a car rental, camping equipment and accommodations for at least half of what we would have paid anywhere else. The vans are very well-maintained, fully stocked with everything we needed and comfortable to drive. We got compliments from multiple people throughout our trip who were impressed with the efficiency of the "setup". We were thrilled with the customer service we received, and found the whole experience to be seamless. We plan to do another road trip with Lost Campers at some point in the next year or two and drive south to Moab, Zion, Grand Arches etc. I highly recommend Lost Campers to anyone who loves road trips, camping, hiking and loves a little adventure!read more

Rented a camper van for almost a week in Yellow stone and it was awesome! This was our first can experience. The van is very functional and has everything for you to be autonomous. They may even lend lighter and propane if they have some left. We miss the van already!read more

We had great great time in the Yellowstone thank's to the van. I do a lot of mountaineering and we are used to travel light, a big RV is not my thing + it"s really cheaper. Once we had mastered the art of setting up the roof tent we could do it with my kids in less then 5 min (clocked). Though I would advise to do it once on the parking lot before leaving especially if you plan to arrive late at your first destination.read more

My wife and I have always wanted to go through the National Parks in a camper van, but the timing added the twist that we needed to do this with a four month old. With that we needed a camper van that could support an infant car seat. Lost campers had the perfect solution and offered the camper van we needed. The service was excellent and we visited the parks for fifteen days with our son. It was the experience of a lifetime. Thank You Lost Campers SLC 🙂read more

We took one of Lost Campers' vans for a two week trip up through the Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks, and I couldn't be happier with the quality of the service we received and the product itself. I have never used a camper van before and my son was camping alongside, so it was kind of a novel experience, but it turned out perfectly. We got unpacking and packing down to a fine art, so that we were able to get early starts so as to secure great sites in the national park camping grounds, and then get started early each day to see the animals and thermal sites before the crowds arrived. The van was perfect for us, and I would thoroughly recommend this approach to anyone seeking flexibility. And Lost Campers were great - booking all this from Australia meant I got a couple of dates mixed up, but they were terrific about changing things around, and the guy in their Salt Lake City office was really knew his stuff - a very pleasant group to deal with....read more

This is our fifth campervan rental and first with Lost Campers. Amazing value (other SLC rentals were 2x to 3x the price!) and completely met our needs.We rented the Sierra Class. Kitchen in the back is convenient, duffel storage is accessible without folding the bed, foam bed is extraordinarily comfortable, staff super efficient and friendly. Can’t recommend enough. Per other reviews, bring a small cutting board otherwise everything you could need is provided.If staying around the Salt Lake City area, recommend you get weekend campsite reservations. On weekdays we had no problem finding walk up campground spots. Remember to bring your American The Beautiful Pass for the federal forests.read more

We absolutely loved the van and the flexibility it gave us to change plans on the fly and to stop and take naps while you're en route something you can't really do with hotels . We estimate it saved us almost 2K in hotel fees for our two week trip. Loved having a sink if for nothing else to wash our hands and the bed was comfortable and private. We purchased a sunscreen shield to make it even more private from the front for $3. The key is to always find showers before nighttime (RV parks and truck stops are usually $12 to shower but some campsites allow you to use their coin showers which cost around $2 for 8 minutes) .so that you get into the bedding clean. Despite being big and spacious the van drove like a car.read more

We rented the roof top tent version and had so much fun on our road trip! We slept inside when it was crazy cold in Yellowstone, but up in the tent for the rest. Great support team and very helpful customer service. If you are picking up your rental in Salt Lake, be advised that the office is in a nondescript grey building. Hopefully Lost Campers will be installing a bigger sign soon. We would definitely rent from these folks again. Now go get lost!read more

Great budget campervan! Cheapest one I found in Utah by far. I basically used it as a place to sleep rather than dealing with setting up tents and finding tent sites at night. The little sink in the back was handy for brushing my teeth but I didn’t use it more than that.read more

We took the van for 5 days and drove to Teton and Yellowstone National parks, and Antelope Island (which is a gem) driving just under 1000 miles return trip. We were really pleased about how smooth the whole Lost Camper hire and return process was, and how friendly and helpful Aspen and Drew were. The Dodge van was kitted out with everything we needed including sink, fresh water and waste containers , tables, bedding (and comfortable bed) chairs, gas cooker, crockery, etc. An added bonus was that we also picked up some essential things that previous campers had returned unused such as maps, bear spray (thankfully re-returned unused!) and laundry soap, etc. A great experience. The only thing that could be improved was information on the LC website about bringing towels. Highly recommended for people wanting an adventure..read more

The beds were easy to make and comfortable. The kitchens served us well. It was comforting to know we had everything we needed with us at all times and could camp anywhere. I highly recommend this company and this way of travel.read more

Had the best 6 week road trip with my "Baby girl" (yeah that was her name lol‍) traveling around the beautiful South West. We did 4560 miles together and she never failed on me once...she was a beast and rocked until the end!!When searching for a van to hire I was looking for something basic but that had all the essential items you need to have a great time on the road and in the wild. I didn't want luxury nor a huge van...just something simple, practical, sturdy, safe, comfy, with unlimited mileage (not many companies offer this advantage), and equipped with just what you need when living the "van life"...I didn't want anything fancy or unnecessary gadgets etc that a lot of companies offer...just essential basics and a great van!! Thanks to Lost Campers, I found exactly what I was looking for and had the most incredible adventure of my life, exploring so many beautiful places and sleeping in the wild under the stars in some of the most amazing camp spots I've seen in my life...The staff at Lost Campers were great! Byron was ever so helpful the day I picked up the van, so laid back but professional and funny at the same time! Very clear with all the explanations during the paperwork process AND showing me how certain things worked in the van before I hit the road alone lol. Very kind staff that take time with their customers! 🙂 Nick the owner of the company was always on call for whenever I needed him and helped me a couple of times during the travels (Baby Girl got a puncture, and then needed 4 new tires towards the end as I had worn them out lol...no fault with the van, just one of those inevitable things that happens when you're on the road for that long). He sorted the issues out promptly and was ever so professional and friendly! THANKS AGAIN NICK!!! I couldn't be more grateful for the whole experience with Lost Campers, and I'm definitely going to book again with them next time I'm back visiting the South West!I had the best time of my life with Baby Girl...she got me to all those amazing and magical places and just loved the simplicity and practicality of her!! She was my rock, my ride but also my cute little home 🙂I highly recommend this company 100%, Lost Campers you rock on every level...your customer service, professionalism, and the vehicles you offer!!THANK YOU for helping towards making my big dream come true!!Hope to see you again soon!!read more

From the minute I picked up Carl (our campervan) from the depot, I knew I was in good hands for the next week as we road tripped across California. The staff was super friendly and went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed prior to leaving the depot. They even checked in regularly to see how my trip was going. The campervan itself was just amazing. Having the ease to travel anywhere and that flexibility to stop anywhere made our trip that much more smoother. The mattress and and tent were both very easy to setup and should you ever have any questions, they have very helpful YouTube videos that came in handy for us. This was my first time experiencing the campervan life and I couldn't have asked for a better experience than with Lost Campers. Would highly recommend these guys and can't wait to see where my next adventure with Lost Campers takes me.read more

Got to experience the ultimate van life with Lost Campers on a road trip recently and had the best time. The staff are super communicative and friendly, and the van was equipped to handle all sorts of camping situations. It had all the supplies we needed to enjoy our road trip. Having a power generator and refrigerated cooler was a huge plus because we could charge our cameras and laptops, and also carry more food with us.

Great customer service and very friendly staff. Byron was very helpful throughout the entire checking in and out process. He also shared some tips before we began with our journey.

They also provide full insurance so there is nothing to worry about during the trip.read more

We recently rented a van from Lost Campers for a month. From check in to check out the staff were very friendly and efficient (thanks Byron) and when we had a cracked windscreen they organised a replacement with one phone call and zero hassles. The van itself was perfect for us for camping in State and National Parks. It had everything we needed for cooking and the bed was super comfortable. Would have no hesitation in renting again from Lost Campers on our next visit to the States and recommend to others who want a reliable ,well equipped vehicle at a good price.read more

Lost Campers made our spring break trip terrific! Well, and the great California weather, ocean and beach time. I just love traveling with your housing and the ability to have an open itinerary. The bed inside the van and the Tepui tent on top were both very comfie. The set up is pretty slick, everything you need including the kitchen sink! I liked that the van was plain (not painted with crazy scenes and colors as some companies do) we could blend in easily. The staff was very friendly, helpful and kind and seemed genuinely interested in our trip and helping us have the best time. Highly recommend!read more

We absolutely loved this company! It was our first time traveling in this kind of van, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The vans are comfortable, safe, warm at night (even in the cold desert) and have great amenities. A huge plus is how discreet the vans look - great for parking in cities, with super tinted windows, not advertising that all your stuff is inside. 🙂 We would definitely recommend this company to anyone wanting to travel with more freedom and ease around the West Coast.read more
