The vibe at Colonial Cowboy
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Our trip out to the Colonial Cowboy was a relaxing place to enjoy some calm and zen for the weekend. There were over 400 acres on this serene ranch and we had the freedom to explore and set up camp anywhere on the property. There are herds of shy cows that we could see watching us curiously and it was fun to hike along the cow paths running through the property and watch their antics. Although just right off the freeway we really felt like we were in a quiet haven away from everything. We had a wonderful time playing board games, doing campfire cooking, and taking time to relax under the giant trees and enjoy being out in nature.
The host gave me the opportunity to pitch my tent wherever I felt led and overall, the stay was very pleasant! Had a bit of trouble communicating back and forth, but it all worked out in the end.
Camped by the back stock pond. Nice and private. Fishing was excellent - plenty of sunfish, blue gills and small large mouth bass.
It's a working ranch, so expect a lot of cowpies around and some curious visitors in the morning. Would recommend a truck or SUV (preferably 4x4) to get back to the camping spots, especially if it has rained recently.
Downsides: Toilet in poolhouse didnt seem to be working (Bring a shovel!) You can hear I-30 and see the semis rolling by on the horizon, so this won't be your top choice if you're looking for deep seclusion.
