Camping Oregon Trail Style

Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging have one of the coolest ways to camp like the pioneers did 200 years ago, in a covered wagon!

This special place is located near Yosemite National Park and gives you the closest experience of what it would have been like if you were living in the olden days traveling on the Oregan Trail.

Although these wagons are definitely more modern and comfortable than the wagons in the pioneer days, some would say it’s not even camping, it’s glamping (glamorous camping). Honestly, once you hear the amenities you’re probably gonna say it’s not camping at all.

Amenities of the Wagon

These incredibly decked out wagons come with a beautiful king-size bed, two sets of bunk beds and a dining room table with chairs. It sleeps up to six people and even has air conditioning and heating installed. It also comes with a microwave and refrigerator too. With all these amenities on a campsite, we can imagine it feels more like your warm and cozie bed instead.

However, it is on a campground and just a few feet outside the wagon there’s a bonfire pit you can sit around and roast hot dogs while listening to campfire songs. Not far from that there’s even a Petting Farm with many furry and feathery friends to pet, including alpacas.

As of now the cost of sleeping in one of these wagons is $179 per night. However, they’re always having special discounts on the website, for example, you can currently get two nights for $313.50.

Overall, this looks like a great place for any country girl or boy to spend their holiday.
