Book 12+ Acres for Group Glamping

1 site · Lodging13 acres · Pleasanton, TX
My husband and I fell in love with this property the moment that we turned "Right" after entering the access gate. There were cows and a very protective Bull. The owner took the cows away after the sale, but he left us with beautiful Mesquite and Spanish Oak and endless possibilities....We want to share this beauty with our guests. Because there are burr grass here and mesquite thorns, we built decks for some of our Glamping Tents. You have a choice of bringing your own gear and setting up on the ground or renting one of our Fully Dressed Glamping Tents that are situated on Decks. We also re-purposed our little rustic cabin and turned it into two luxury bathrooms and a separate fully functioning kitchen. The beauty of our space, is you can bring a group of your Family and Friends and enjoy Secluded Private Camping! 20 miles away you have Choke Canyon State Park. You might think fishing and boating rule at this Texas state park. You'd be right. Cast your line from the shore or a boat to catch largemouth bass and catfish. Pick from hundreds of secluded inlets or coves to find your perfect fishing spot. Return to your campsite at sunset for a hearty dinner of fish filets and hushpuppies. Be aware that fish aren't the only creatures in the water. This lake marks the farthest west that American alligators live in their natural habitat. Don't worry too much, because alligators usually avoid humans and stay away from boats. Pack your binoculars, because birding is popular here. Head to the South Shore unit for special birdwatching trails that wind around the park. Listen for bird calls as they talk to each other or to you. Songbirds and migratory birds make homes near the reservoir. Learn more about this land: Private Camping on over 12 Acres. We will provide Five Tents for either Semi-Primitive camping or Tent Glamping. Beautiful 5 Meter Bell Tent on a deck is available for the Guest that makes the reservation and that Guest will be responsible for all other camp guests.
