Glamping with Pets- Cedar Creek Lake

Glamping with Pets- Cedar Creek Lake

A couple of weeks ago, Kale and I decided to take our dogs and go away for a weekend. When I first brought up the idea of glamping, Kale had no idea what I was talking about. When I explained we would head to a cabin with Elie and Mia (my dogs) and Pierre (his dog) he was on board! Glamping with Pets provided me with a gift card, and we decided on a short weekend trip.

Glamping with Pets made it really easy to filter our options and choose the minimum nights and price limits as well as a radius of how far we were willing to travel. Our dogs, having never been in a car for any extended period of time, we decided to not go farther than an hour or so away from Dallas. That is how we landed at Cedar Creek Lake in Tool, or the middle of nowhere, Texas.

Our cabin was a part of an RV park right off of the lake. We had a tiny one room hut, perfect for us and the dogs to sleep in. There were really cute yurts, cabins, and glampsites on the Glamping with Pets website, and if we were to take more time and money and do it again, I’d love to try some of those! Anyways, we unpacked and walked around with the dogs to get the lay of the land. We found horseshoes and I learned to play, during the game the pups were chasing the horseshoes thinking we were actually playing with them.

That night, we had a fun cookout which the dogs were all for since they got the extra hot dogs, and my personal favorite, s’mores! For the night, we ignored our phones, left the laptops at home, and just paid attention to each other and our dogs. It was a beautiful night where we could watch the dogs, star-gaze and really just relax, which we don’t do much with all of the distractions in our lives. After dinner we actually had no idea what to do with ourselves, I mean what do you do without a television or computer these days? You go to bed at 9pm, that’s what. And it was fantastic.

The next day, despite our early bedtime, we didn’t wake up early. The dogs were antsy to get outside again, so we took another long walk around the neighborhood, then headed to a local park where we learned is the best place to find public lake access. It was Easter Sunday, so there weren’t many activities available, but the dogs enjoyed being by the water and the extra walks! Finally, we hopped in the car and drove home with the 3 pups panting away in the back seat.

Overall, our trip was really fun! I’d like to try some of Glamping with Pets other locations to get another, different experience, but we are totally on board to do this again! Traveling with pets is not the easiest thing, but it is the best! They don’t have to stay home, and you don’t have to pay a dog sitter. I would take my dogs with me on every trip if I could, and now with Glamping with Pets, I might be able to!

      Mine definitely didn’t leave my site, if they get away they can run fast and far, so they don’t go farther than the leash 🙂
