Valley Center Glamping

at historic Broken Rock Ranch.




What is Glamping?

Picture a very large safari style tent on a even larger deck with it's own private seating area and fire ring, and when you open the tent flaps, you have a luxury hotel room. Camping equals work, while glamping equals play. The simplicity of getting ready to leave for a short or extended glamping trip will make your leisure time pleasant and enjoyable from the start, before you even leave home. Packing an overnight bag, or a suitcase just takes a little while, eliminating the need for endless trips to the sporting goods store, grocery store, or any of the other countless errands required when planning a camping trip. Just pack your bags and go!
