Our glamping sites are located within the The Laguna / El Prado campground. We have both tree tents and bell tents available on site. We can host groups of up to 24 people with our different combination of tree tents.

The region famous for its terrain that transitions from a desert environment to a mountain top conifer forest. The trails are fun to explore with picturesque scenery along the way. Within the recreation area is the Big Laguna Mountain Meadows & the Little Laguna Lake. It is forested with pines and oaks that provide plenty of shade, in addition to a meadow. The area is home to many species of birds, as well as the endangered Laguna Skipper butterfly.

The Laguna Mountain Recreation Area is known for great horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking trails. Most famous of all is a segment of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail, which runs from California to the State of Washington. Wildflowers are usually abundant in April and May on the Big Laguna Trail, which takes visitors past Big Laguna Lake. Families can learn about the area's flora and fauna by attending educational programs at the facility's amphitheater. The El Prado Cabin is located at nearby El Prado Campground, is the first ranger cabin built in the Cleveland National Forest in 1911.
