If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This is a great spot in the park especially if you love horses and are going to ride. It’s so close to the stable but private and away from the crowds. Cooking on the fire was fun. One has a grill and bar with hooks to hang pots and pans over the fire. The beds in the basic wagon are comfortable and this is a great value place for a group. There were just two of us and full price was a bit steep but the experience good. Friendly and helpful folks. The warm shower and air conditioning were great and much needed in the summer heat.
A slice of heaven here on earth
We’ve stayed at several hip camps and this camp site was the best by far. The property itself is a stunning setting within the state park. The views are magical. There is so much attention to detail in the campsite itself. We especially liked that there was a large campfire already waiting for us upon arrival. We made use of the s’mores sticks and some of the campfire cooking tools provided. In the morning we hiked all through the trails on the property that connect to the state park. We only passed one other person during our hike. The owner, Glen, is very friendly and genuine. We are very thankful he shares this slice of heaven with the world.
The Old Covered Wagon site is the absolute best site we have experienced on Hipcamp! It is perfect for families and it set up with almost anything you could need.
The site is secluded, back on the top of a hill, overlooking a horse pasture. It’s just the most relaxing place to wake up!
The wagon has 8 bunks, with two of them pushed together to make a Queen-ish sized bed. The beds are comfy—bring a sleeping bag and a pillow and you’re all set! The wagon is cozy and stayed waterproof for us with an overnight rain. There are a couple of air conditioners inside, we did not test them out, but it is an option.
There’s a covered picnic table and a second open-air table. There are three fire pits, each with different cooking options, as well as a big barbecue, so perfect for however you like to cook. There’s a great old fashioned swing next to one of the fire pits—the perfect s’mores spot! There’s also a hammock set up that’s big enough for two.
There’s also an outhouse and a shower stall off to the side. We didn’t test the showers, but it was so nice to camp in a site with an outhouse. There was also plenty of firewood around.
The site is really close to the Robbers Cave State Park, which has excellent hiking and climbing! Our horseback ride got rained out, but we’re looking forward to going back to this site and trying that next time!
Top camp experience: great for kids
This is a really special location and experience. We came here on a father daughter trip. Glenn greeted us upon arrival after dark and made sure we were set up comfortably at the camp. The bunks in the covered wagon a quite comfortable with futon style mattresses, space heaters and a generator to run a/c in the summer. There are a lot of nearby activities: horse rides, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, boating, canoe/kayaking. This property has its own secret trails for children to explore that lead to a fur trapper shed with a “treasure box”. We plan to come here again when we’ll have more time to explore the lakes, canyons and waterfalls nearby.
Stayed here with a group of friends and everyone had a great time! The host was very nice and helpful, and the views from the site were amazing. Getting to pet and ride horses through the woods was so much fun. There was plenty of areas to hike and it was pretty secluded. I do wish there was a lock on the inside of the wagon, but it’s possible we overlooked it. Overall I would definitely stay here again and plan to ride horses down there very soon!
Can't wait to return
Our group has collectively camped all over Oklahoma and Texas, and this was one of our favorite campsites we have ever been to. We arrived a little late, but Glen had lit a fire and lanterns and showed us around. We were impressed by the set-up and the cleanliness. It's strange to say, but the outhouse exceeded expectations...don't let that scare you off!!
The view was lovely, we enjoyed the trails, and we were even able to do a little fishing. At the end of our stay we went for an hour horse ride and highly recommend that as well.
We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back.
We had a great time camping here. The host offered so many unexpected amenities like propane lanterns, flashlights, etc. We even had a propane heater in the covered wagon. The beds were high quality covered- foam mattresses, so we were comfy.
Camping made easy
Let’s just say I single-handedly took six teens/tweens camping here and it was awesome, which is saying something considering the crew. The wagon is cozy and the bottom bunk mattresses were so soft! The property is gorgeous and you can hike from the site to the Robbers Cave. Glen and his dog Punchy were attentive and helpful—and Cowboys Glen and Gary went above and beyond and helped me load my car-top carrier. The kids loved the trail ride (a separate reservation and cost) and interacting with the horses.
There are multiple fire pits and a Coleman stove. (BYO Propane). He has picnic tables and hanging lanterns (again BYOP). The wagon has battery lights, but I liked having our battery operated lantern as well. The outhouse was actually pretty nice. And can I say that I was not expecting the outdoor “cowboy” shower to have hot water but it did and it felt really nice after a long day of hiking—even the teen girls approved. There’s also a real bathroom down at the stables but we didn’t need it.
Also, the state park has activities, we went to the Lake Carlton day use area just a few minutes up the road. There we rented canoes and paddle boats and visited the gift shop and they swam in the lake (it was cold!) and played in the sand.
We can’t wait to come back.
