Reservation on the Guadalupe
Glamping on the Guadalupe
After one night staying in this tepee, I'm officially a fan of “glamping.” Rising Moon, the last in a cluster of eight tepees, two bath houses and a treehouse game room, is situated on Reservation on the Guadalupe’s 1.5-acre property. The sturdy dwellings resemble traditional tepees from the outside but are fully-furnished and equipped with all the conveniences of modern day living on the inside. Surprisingly roomy, each is outfitted with three queen beds boasting memory-foam mattresses, a pullout couch, a kitchenette with hot and cold water, a coffee maker and mini-fridge, a 60-inch flat screen, Wi-Fi and heating and air conditioning. Nearby private bathrooms feature walk-in showers, fresh towels and soap. Each tepee sleeps up to six, providing the perfect compromise for reluctant campers seeking unique riverside lodging without having to “rough it.” Reservation on the Guadalupe’s main draw is its direct river access and river park featuring a spread of picnic tables, charcoal grills and hammocks where guests can enjoy fishing, swimming and tubing.
