Intro: My wife Penny and I are full time travelers, living and working in a 21 foot RV with our Siberian Husky named Kaylee. We love photography, foraging, cooking, and meeting new people and hearing awesome campfire stories
We had a wonderful time staying out with Mike and Susy! They are located right between Coachella Valley, Palm Springs, and Joshua Tree National Park. Their entire property is completely fenced, which means dogs are able to run about unleashed, and our husky thoroughly enjoyed the freedom. They have adorable happy hens which produce fresh eggs daily, and they are available for campers to buy. The campsites are well thought out; they have picnic tables and fire rings available for use. Mike and Susy are amazing hosts! We had so much fun hanging out with them and getting to know them. We loved that there were both showers and a secluded outdoor bathtub available. There are plenty of amazing areas to relax with a good book and enjoy the sun and the spectacular mountain views. If you're in the area, this is definitely the place to camp!
This site truly lives up to it's name. It is a wonderful secluded location where there's nobody for miles and miles. The desert is pristine and the directions were easy to follow. We pulled up, picked a flat spot, and set up camp. The desert plants were gorgeous and we had a bast hiking the area and exploring. The sunset and sunrise were both absolutely spectacular! We loved the remoteness of the site and the perfect serenity and quiet. If you're looking for a true getaway in the heart of the desert, this is the perfect place!
We loved our stay out at High Lonesome Vineyard! The area is absolutely stunning, and the surrounding mountain ranges are beautiful and provide the most spectacular sunsets. We loved exploring the vineyard and seeing all the gorgeous vines. Our hosts were fantastic; they were so accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. There are plenty of wide open pull through spots for RVs of all size. We loved getting to play with the puppies that were about 12 weeks old when we got there. The tasting room is a beautiful open-air area with a fire pit and great tables for hanging out. This is the perfect place for wine lovers!
Gardens Oasis is a great getaway out in the Texas desert. We loved the views from the property and had so much fun hiking around the area exploring. The mountains nearby were stunning! There are amenities like an outdoor shower and a beautiful fire pit available for camper use. Due to the time of year we visited, the evenings got quite cold, but the sun would warm things up to a great enjoyable temperature during the day. If you're looking for a quiet getaway out in the beautiful Texas desert, this site is totally for you.
Grapevine Springs Retreat is an amazing hidden gem! We had such a spectacular time exploring this awesome part of Texas hill country. Wilson was such a fantastic host, he took the time to give us a tour of the ranch which we loved. The swimming hole by the campsite has the cleanest see-through water, and the fresh spring water was the best tasting water we've ever tried. The campsite is perfectly set up for either just a few campers to a whole group of people! It's shaded by beautiful giant oak trees and has the most incredible hand built grill for camper use, complete with an oven and hot surface for pans! What we loved the most was the incredible history of the land. Wilson knows so much about his ancestors' stories living on this land years and years ago and we were lucky enough to see the ruins of the original homestead from the 1870s. This is an amazing private oasis that we loved camping at.
We loved staying out with Victoria and Mickey! Their ranch is beautiful; absolutely pristine and well maintained. They have the most wonderful group of friendly well-loved animals. If you're lucky you'll get an in-depth tour of the feeding time ritual, from the chickens, goats, and horses, to the cutest pig we've ever met. The cabins are beautiful and each one is decorated according to it's own theme. They are all spotless and are a fantastic getaway in the beautiful Texas hills.
Mary's land was a short drive out of Dallas for a camping trip. The property has others living on it, and the campsite that we chose to set up at was about a hundred yards from the house. The campsite had a beautiful mature oak tree that made for fantastic shade and the ground was level and great for pitching a tent. The property was remote and it was really nice to be surrounded by acres of nature and have very little traffic noise. We had fun walking around the few acres on the property and watching the scissor-tailed flycatchers flying around.
We had a wonderful relaxing stay out at Gypsy Moon Hideaway. The Brazos river is stunning and it was such a treat to get to camp right on it's banks. The towering pecan trees provide a fantastic amount of shade and the river was perfect to plunge into during the heat of the day. The grounds were impeccably well kept, and the communal fire ring was perfect for a sunset bonfire and marshmallow roasting. There are hiking paths that are well maintained and shaded and we loved exploring those. We can't recommend this location enough for a peaceful getaway just a bit outside of Fort Worth!
We loved our stay out at Trickle Creek Ranch! It was great to have a perfect level RV pad with hookups just right out of Fort Worth. Trickle Creek is a wonderful oasis and we loved exploring the grounds. The community is very small; there are currently just a handful of RV hookups which leads to wonderful privacy. Gary is an incredible carpenter and it was so fun to see some of his handiwork around the property. The few resident cows were adorable and we loved watching them at feeding time.
Amber Dome was a relaxing peaceful getaway from the city. The vineyard and grounds are a work in progress. There is a pull in and hookup for an RV, which is perfect for the hot Texas summer! The grounds were mowed and we had a beautiful field to pitch our tent with a great view of the sunset. We loved seeing the morning glories and all the hummingbirds and butterflies they attracted. The pond on the property is home to so many frogs, as well as fish and turtles. We had such a great time watching the frogs and hanging at the pond!
