Have You Ever Camped in Luxury?
Glamping is a luxury type of camping that includes facilities and accommodation considered far more comfortable than traditional camping. It allows you to enjoy the freedom and closeness to nature that camping affords, without the uncomfortable aspects
If that sounds nice, try staying in one of our Glamping tents! Each reservation includes two camping passes (two nights), so a perfect way for friends and families wanting to enjoy a relaxing weekend without the hassle of camp site set-up! Camp in the comfort of our 23' diameter, 11.5' high glamping tents with several configuration options - 2 queens, or 1 queen + 2 twins, or 4-twins. Each option includes a table and chairs, but no electricity - it is still camping after all. The Royal Bathhouse will also provide each Glamper one 8-minute shower per day.Don't forget about our special offers for campers.

Haak Wines: The Official Preferred Wine Supplier of TRF
It all began in 1969 on the 10th wedding anniversary of Raymond and Gladys Haak. Gladys's gifts to Raymond that year were two Concord grapevines. What began as a hobby with those two vines soon turned into a great passion for both novice winemakers. With the Concords and other grape varieties, Raymond tested which would survive the harsh climate conditions along the Gulf Coast of Texas.
A few years later, Raymond read about a hybrid grape variety that was said to be resistant to Pierce's Disease and grew well in dry, hot environments. It was called Blanc du Bois.
Haak became one of the first wineries in the country to cultivate Blanc du Bois, and Raymond's foresight has proven positive as the winery has produced numerous award-winning wines from the Blanc du Bois grapes. Two lonely grape vines in 1969 have turned into 3 acres filled with 1,800 vines. And in 2000, Haak Wines began commercial selling their wonderful wines so that the whole public could enjoy a tasty beverage.
Haak Winery is located in Galveston. Tours and tastings by reservation only. Go check them out.
