We are located at the far end of a sandy stretch of road, completely private. The 67 acres are completely enclosed in an old barbed wire fence and gated, so you can't get lost for too long, although the woods are DENSE. Owners live on the property.

We ask that campers park their cars just inside the gate and camp within "range" of a new cedar outhouse with composting toilet, located in the southwest corner of the property (close to the front gate). The entire acreage is open to exploring and there is a small pond (great for dog swimming only). Along with outdoor composting toilet there is running water available in the meadow (planned for future organic agriculture). Please pack in/pack out your belongings and all trash. There are a few trails - more to come soon. Infrastructure plans are just beginning! We welcome your ideas and shared vision. It's very Natural out here . . .

We went out to Ardor Wood Farm mid-afternoon and got ourselves acquainted with the glamping tent and property. I will tell you, it was pretty nice to not have to set up and break down camp for a change. The tent has a queen size bed, full bug protection, a dresser, and chair. There is no running water, so make sure to bring plenty of your own. There is a small, clean, outhouse available down the trail near the tent spots.

We spent the afternoon exploring the property, looking at the baby goats, and hammock relaxing among the trees. When it cooled down at night, we played Yahtzee on the porch and just relaxed. There isn't much to do around the area beside hang out, play cards, read and relax. The walking/hiking trails are fairly simple trails with some bird watching. There is a small pond that is good for dogs, wouldn't recommend for humans. So I would definitely recommend the area if you're just looking to get away from Austin and have a simple night under the stars.

My stay at Glamping Glen was so lovely! It was perfect for me and my dog, Reggie. Graham and Karen gave great directions to the place - they greeted me upon arrival and couldn't have been more sweet. The campsite is maybe 100 yards away from the parking lot, so they provide a little red wagon to cart your things. Walking up to the tent is like a dream - it looks exactly as pictured! There is a bed, rocking chair, side tables, wardrobe, pitcher of water, a bowl/mirror, a swinging bench and table for the porch. And thank goodness for the mosquito net to shield from bugs! The fire pit comes with firewood provided and is about 50' away from your comfortable set up. The place is clean and well kept, with a compost toilet just a short walk away :) You are separated from some other hipcamp sites by some forest and trails. I ended up making a couple new friends for the night as we sat around the fire, told stories, and made s'mores.

The grounds are extensive - plenty of trails to explore! We discovered chickens, goats (babies too!), a garden, we even saw their bee apiary from a distance. Reggie took a dip in a cool quiet pond and chased around some deer that we saw. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. It really is a little slice of Texas heaven!

Hipcamper Chelsea

Perfect getaway spot just outside of Austin. Our dog loved playing in the pond and we loved exploring the trails!

Hipcamper Michael

My experience at Glamping Glen was great! The property has a lot to offer – from trails, a fire pit, farm animals, to a pond. Graham was extremely nice and accommodating.

Hipcamper Alexander

Close to the city, well maintained, and very private. The hosts are also very friendly and accommodating - excellent getaway!
