Tents Have Their Place

03/12/2010 at 11:06 am 2 comments

High Plains Camping is an RV park, but we also cater to the needs of many who prefer to rough-it. Whether you have a pup-tent or a canvas castle, prefer to car camp, or go the way of the West by rolling out a sleeping bag under a tree, we have space for you. 

Tent Sites Are Endless and Enormous

We offer many choices for your tent

Other than a few spaces with utility hook-ups, we have an endless supply of spots for your tent. They are limitless in size. You have choices with us.

You can be as removed from society as you like by going to the farthest NW corner and setting up in the pine trees.

Some prefer to be right beside the Rec and Relaxation Sunflower Barn, using it also as a means of shelter from the winds of the High Plains.

Others prefer the wide open fields, which can handle  … oh … as a guestimate … hundreds of tents if you bring the crowd.

Still others like a spot that’s near some trees, yet is a little more removed.

Some prefer to pitch a tent in the field right near the restrooms.

Others pick a spot near the U-Pick Organic Garden.

If you aren’t familiar with our 15 acre facility which is surrounded by open prairies, click here to see our site map.

Think you might like to give us a try? When you book a site, you are welcome to jot us a note suggesting what area suits your needs. But don’t worry too much since we rarely do we have more than 1 or 2 tents on any given night (although 2009 brought more from time to time). You’re always welcome to pick the spot after you’re here. You can let the crowds, the weather, and the current conditions help you determine your spot.

The only additional comments I have are more like warnings or sour notes. There are 2: fires and weather.     

Fires:  Due to our typically very dry conditions and high winds, open fires are not permitted.     

Weather:  You see, many people think they’re going to tent camp as they make their way around these High Plains of America, but when they arrive they say, “Does the wind always blow like this?” Yes. Some days it blows at 5 mph. Some days it’s 50 mph. Some it’s been known to reach 80 mph for a brief time. Canvas prefers the 5 mph stuff! Keep an open mind, and have back-up plans in mind. When our weather cooperates it’s awesome here!      

It’s because we cater to both RVs and tents, and we don’t put tents side by side with the RVs, that we call ourselves High Plains CAMPING Resort rather than High Plains RV Park. I invite you to give us a try!

    Outfitter / expedition style tents can withstand the higher winds better.

    Many people like myself cannot really afford a RV so leaving room for us is a good business move.
