You Can Now Vacation in a Covered Wagon Cabin Near Yosemite
Anyone who has ever played The Oregon Trail knows that covered wagons in the 19th century weren’t exactly the epitome of comfort. One resort wants to change that by offering pioneer-inspired "glamping" options (without the risk of dysentery, of course).
As Lonely Planet reports, Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging is renting out a range of Conestoga wagon cabins about 20 miles away from Yosemite National Park. The wagons are larger than the ones used by early American expansionists, and decidedly comfier, too.
Each wagon sleeps four to six people and comes with a king-sized bed, one or two sets of bunk beds, heating and air conditioning, a microwave, fridge, and Keurig coffee maker. There’s a picnic table and barbecue pit out front, too, so if you want to cook up an authentic pioneer meal of beans and bacon, you can go right ahead.
“The resort’s trailers offer a fun camping experience for individual campers or groups who want to enjoy a throwback lifestyle but expect comfortable amenities,” the resort said in a statement.
Six wagons are currently available for rent, and prices for a four-person cabin range from $139 to $279 per night, depending on the season. To book your stay in the Wild West, head to the resort’s website.
