The Getaway Gals Camping Club is the southern belle’s answer to the call of the wild.

Mind you, “the wild” is open to interpretation …

“We don’t just sit around a campfire,” the Gals confess. “We also shop, go to festivals, have costume parties, visit points of interest, have potluck suppers, host fundraisers … well, you get the idea. We are in this for FUN!”

If you live in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, or Louisiana and are itching to get your glamp on with the Gals, they invite you to jump on board.

“We have a little over 400 members, and they’re all women—no kids or men allowed,” member Pam Sinclair told RV blogger Rex Vogel. “Most of us are married, and part of the fun is getting away from the husband, the house, the kids, and the pets for a few days.”

“We have weekend get’aways every four to five weeks and they are in a different location each time.”

With no initiation fee and no annual dues, the Get’away Gals are a bona fide free-for-all.

“All you have to do is attend two campouts to see if you like it, and you’re in,” says Sinclair.

Upcoming months’ events are being planned for the following locations:

  • July: Big Bend or Pala Duro Canyon, Texas (Hostess Barb Lambert)
  • August: Louisiana (Hostess Karen LeGlue)
  • September: Conway, Arkansas (Hostess Debbie Johnson)
  • October: Canton, Texas (Hostess Barb Parmley)
  • October: Houston, Texas area (Hostess Judy Cauthorn)

Find out more about catching up with the Get’away Gals on their website, where you can also travel along in spirit through photos, songs, and a monthly newsletter.

    This glamping “movement” seems to be taking the nation by storm! So many creative women reconditioning these vintage trailers into the cutest adventure expedition vehicles. I love the whimsy, the stories, the photos of so many friends coming together to recharge their batteries, and all of the creative ways they embrace fun together! Makes me wish I did not just own a Prius!
