On this week’s show I welcome my very own real life sister Natalie Hill. Natalie is a wife, mom and the founder of Holdyou Foundation, the official charity of the Girl Camper Podcast. Besides being incredibly altruistic she’s my only sibling that camps and she camps the old school way – in a vintage trailer with no AC, propane or plumbing. I thought it would be cool to send Natalie out to an RV Resort to experience camping from another perspective. As we like to say here at the Podcast, there’s no wrong way to Camp Like a Girl. We sent her to the Highways West Flying Flags RV Resort and Campground in Buellton, California for a weekend of camping and pampering. She’s here today to share the inside story on luxury camping.

Natalie and Dominic’s vintage Shasta is tucked right in among the Big Boys. Large or small, everyone is welcome.

Highways West Resorts has ten locations on the west coast offering luxe family getaways in resort settings for campers, glampers and those looking for a destination location that also offers all the things we love about camping. These high end campgrounds are loaded with amenities for all ages. Multiple pools, restaurants, glamping tents that are magazine worthy, and cabins and cabanas all in a pristine setting. Their Beullton, California location was the first in their brand and they spent millions of dollars transforming a once a sleepy campground into a resort that you could spend your whole vacation at. They then took that model and began building a series of destination campgrounds and resort facilities along the west coast. The results allow not only RVers, but those without trailers as well, to have a camping experience while being pampered and treated to all of the amenities we love on resort vacations. It’s the perfect blend of camping and glamping.

Community fire pits and gathering spaces make Flying Flags a great place to host a family reunion, girlfriend weekend or annual get together.


Evening bocce ball!!


The glamping tents have their own fire pit.


Natalie and Dominic love making dinner but Flying Flags has a restaurant on the premises so you can choose to dine out for some meals and in for others.
