Glamping is taking a page from the Oregon Trail. Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging is offering a one-of-a-kind experience inside their new ( but old-looking) Conestoga Wagons.

Located in the Northern California town of Groveland, the covered wagons allow locals and guests alike to feel like they’ve traveled back in time to the Old West, minus the lack of electricity.

The four-person or six-person wagon are furnished with king-size and twin-size beds. Each living quarter is complete with heating and air conditioning for an elevated camping experience, in addition to an under-counter fridge, microwave, and coffee pot. And each wagon comes with a picnic table and fire ring for those looking to spend as much time as possible in the great outdoors.

The campsite is located just 22 miles from Yosemite National Park, which allows guests to have easy access to the famous attraction. Visitors can also explore the downtown area of Groveland that is lined with shops, restaurants, and the Iron Door Saloon—known to be California’s oldest operating saloon.

And there are plenty of activities to take advantage of on property, too—from natural walks to hayrides and outdoor movies. (See more about onsite activities here.) And for those seeking more intense sports, there is a range of local excursions guests can take part in, depending on the season. Take part in extreme mountain climbing and water rafting during the summer, or go snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter.

The camping grounds is open all-year round and rates vary by season. If you’re interested in embarking on an Old West adventure, book a wagon here. And if sleeping in a wagon isn’t your style, there are plenty of other traditional camping options.
