Covered Wagon Glamping

Try one of our tipis or covered wagons and you'll never go back to camping in a tent again!   Learn more...

True West Campground did not disappoint! The campground was clean, owners were friendly and welcoming, they offered great add-on amenities and for a reasonable cost. The trail system was right across the street and offered so many scenic places to visit. The maps were easy to read and the trails were marked making it very easy to navigate. We can't wait to go back!
