Intro: I'm Hannah! I live in Austin, TX but search for adventure far and wide! I tend to camp with my dog Reggie and sometimes we bring along my husband Steve and other fur baby Cora. I love experiencing new things, exploring, and meeting new people.
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!
My stay at Happy Horse was wonderful! Upon arrival Hollis greeted me and gave me a tour of the farm in her golf cart, along with her two friendly pups (who got along great with my pup!). I was the only person camping there for the evening, so I had my choice of camping spots. She took me to the most secluded one, down one of the trails in the wooded area of the property. She provided a wagon for me to cart my stuff from my car - and even brought me a large jug of filtered water for the night! It was a nice and peaceful night. My dog Reggie and I heard a bit of music coming from a neighbors house and had to keep an eye out for spiders (but that just comes with the territory of camping!). There was firewood provided, so we made a roaring fire and explored the wooded trails by moonlight. There was a compost toilet provided for us and water spigots to refill water bottles. Almost all structures had twinkle lights too!
Reggie and I watched a lovely sunset and a quiet peaceful mist covered the ground over the horse pasture in the morning. Hollis was a perfect, accommodating host, and you can't beat the atmosphere at Happy Horse. I'd gladly stay again!
