Your Personal Luxury Suite in the Midst of a Pristine Mountain Forest
En suite bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens, comfy queen-sized beds, and propane fireplace stoves to keep you toasty on even the coldest of nights. One of the best parts of glamping at Bailey’s on Palomar is the freedom to just jump in your car and go. There’s no shlepping. All you need is to stuff your cooler, grab your camera, and pick up that great book you’ve been meaning to read. Pretty much everything else is already here waiting for you.

The Outdoor Experience
Kick back in one of our comfy chairs while grilling your favorite entree over the provided propane grill. Enjoy the view as hawks fly overhead and deer roam free. Appreciate the antics of the plentiful chipmunks and squirrels. Listen to the steady gentle hammer of woodpeckers storing their acorns in nearby trees.

A grated wood burning fire pit sets the mood. Because let’s face it, it’s not camping without that enticing smell of wood smoke and roasting marshmallows.
