For a truly unique experience pitch your tent on a small bluff overlooking the home of over 40 gibbons and listen to them sing as you peacefully sip your morning coffee. With just a short drive from the hustle bustle find yourself a world away in ranch country, where the earth is parched, the sunsets are fiery and the night sky is filled with stars.
On the site there is a fire pit for your use and a table and BBQ less than a minute walk. We are environmentally minded facility and encourage you to camp lightly, be mindful of your footprint, pack it in and pack it out.
You’re welcome to stroll through the center at your leisure and if you want to learn about these endangered apes schedule a tour with one of their knowledgeable staff members. All of purchases go directly towards supporting the Gibbon Conservation Center.

The vibe at Stay Wild Campground

One of the most unique camping experiences so far! Waking up at 6:00am to the sounds of singing apes is pretty incredible. Our host Alma was so welcoming and was more than happy to show us around and answer any questions we had about the gibbons. The work they do is amazing and inspiring, such a wonderful experience.
If you love gibbons this is a fun and unique way to support them directly while spending time with them in close proximity. You wake up to the sound of them singing, which is very early in the morning so it is a very rare opportunity to experience. You can wander about the site watching them play in the morning. The site itself is great, cleared and flat with a campfire and rocking chairs, as well as a nice grill that is yours to use.
This "camping experience" was a gift to a friend, and he said: "This was a life-changing experience for me. It exceeded every expectation of mine. The campsite was great; and, I have never met more friendly, more knowledgeable, more patient and more dedicated animal-conservation people in my life. And, I can't think of a better way to start a day than by being awakened in my tent by the 'singing' of gibbons -- gibbons that appeared and behaved as the comfortable, healthy and very well cared-for gibbons they are!"
Wonderful place! Loved hanging out with Gibbons. Such amazing animals. I learned a lot about them and their behaviors
Yes they sing in the morning!
Just pitch your tent and enjoy watching the Gibbons play, eat and sing!
Fun place to hang out and camp
