How much 'roughing it' is involved with the Glamping Tents?
Our Glamping Tents are quite comfortable with high quality mattresses, linens and pillows. You’ll also find an evaporative cooler for summer cooling, multiple power outlets, and lighting.
However, this is still camping! There is no running water and no bathroom in the tents. Our shower house with hot showers and flush toilets is open 24 hours a day, and is located from 100 to 350 feet away from the Glamping tents.
Although our climate here is fairly dry we still see some insects, so bringing along insect repellent is a good idea. Also, the pesky bugs will fly into your tent if you leave doors open. Remember, you’re still camping – just in a slightly more glamorous style than the days of old!
Is Wi-Fi available?
Absolutely. Each cabin has it’s own dedicated high speed Wi-Fi. Directions to access Wi-Fi are provided inside the cabins.
Are pets allowed?
We do not allow pets in any of our cabins or glamping tents. There is a pet boarding facility about a mile from the cabins. Eight Mile Ranch pet boarding can be reached at 719-275-2035.
How late can I check in?
Our check in office is staffed until 8 PM from Memorial Day weekend through the middle of August. The rest of the year the check in office is open until 6 PM. Please let us know at the time of making your reservation if you will need to check-in late and we will make arrangements for you.

Be aware that during fire bans the only location where smoking is allowed is inside your vehicle. Please dispose of extinguished cigarette butts in the provided containers located at designated smoking areas.
