Trailer camping is a whole lot easier when you don't have to actually hook it up to the trailer hitch and navigate the highways to find your paradise. We are already here and we tucked a lovingly restored cardinal trailer in one of our secluded hallows here at the Songdog. Basic essentials are provided; water, firewood, basket of cooking utensils and paper goods. Get outside

Simple perfection. A beautiful property with breathtaking vistas. An experience that was way above expectations. The trailer is super cute with a king size bed and wrap-around windows. Absolutely loved waking up to the stunning views in the morning. The trailer has a gas stove, which made it very convenient to boil water for coffee and cook some of the meals. We also cooked over the fire pit! Site comes with a well-equipped kitchen basket with everything you need to cook and enjoy a meal. Pot and pan, utensils, salt and pepper, disposable cups and plates, etc. The site comes with its own outhouse, which is also well maintained. The best feature is the stock tank tub, which Jim filled up with potable water before arrived. Even tho there is no shower, the tub was exactly what we needed after a day of off-roading on the nearby trailers. Jim is one of the most thoughtful and kind hosts, I’ve ever encountered. Not only have we found our new camping spot, but we also made a great new friend to visit! I can not recommend this place enough. Enjoy!

What an amazing property. Very well-kept up I was very impressed with our private bathroom. The glamp trailer was up kept beautifully. Jim and his dogs were more than hospitable. The Tepid tub was an unexpected luxury. Plenty of privacy between different campsites. I will definitely be visiting this place again and would highly recommend you just book this place! They even have an amazing lodge or larger groups. That’s probably where we will stay next time.

This was our beautiful campsite. Our friends brought a shift pod and camped out next door to us. The trailer was way nicer and it was cool with A/C til noon because of the position.

This is an amazing place for a weekend getaway for a couple, its a very private location and Jim was a great host. The location was very well maintained and jim had everything ready for us before we arrived. The fact that its pet friendly made it the perfect spot for us. I will definitely be going back to stay at another one of camping spots on Jims ranch.

We had a great relaxing time at the Vintage Glamp Trailer during our stay. Both our hosts Jim and Carol were amazing and friendly along with the rest of their staff. Our closest neighbor was down the hill from us maybe 200 yards or more, privacy and noise was not an issue. The trailer was well kept and even had a gas stove! Cookware, utensils, and even firewood were included for the duration of our stay. The cowboy tub was a huge plus as we were there during 100+ degree dry weather. All in all, we will definitely be returning.

My partner and I stayed one night with our two dogs and had such a nice time. It was perfectly secluded with beautiful views, really felt like the perfect getaway. The tub was ideal in the hot sun & the trailer itself is adorable. Everything you could possibly need is provided & it was very well kept. The star gazing was a big bonus too! Definitely will come back here!

The place was amazing although we do not recommend arriving at night as it is pretty far down the dirt path and there’s no power to the trailer. The outhouse was very well kept and the tub was an awesome bonus. Unlimited firewood kept us warm after dark and the stars were breathtaking.
