Well, that’s perfect because Camp Lucy has all of the camp activities you could ever want, except it’s the adult version (although kids are welcome here and can have just as much fun)!

Havenwald is the perfect, magical glamping experience right outside of Austin. There are three tiny homes to choose from, but we stayed in the Robin Hood Cottage. This cottage had my fairytale childhood written all over it! Stained glass windows covered the house and colored wood was speckled throughout. The pictures don’t do this charming cottage justice. The owners were even kind enough to provide a picnic basket with yummy treats. This wholesome experience will offer plenty of privacy, but since you are nearby, stop in Austin and experience all the things to do.
