Camping in Comfort


Cherry Point & Redtail

The word “glamping” first appeared in the United Kingdom in 2005 and was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2016. The word is new, but the concept that “glamping” connotes, that of luxurious tent-living, is not. In the 16th century, the Scottish Earl of Atholl prepared a lavish experience in the Highlands for the visiting King James V and his mother. Here, the Duke pitched lavish tents and filled them with all the provisions of his own home palace.

At Bailey’s on Palomar we’ve ‘borrowed’ from the English and made it our own with ‘off the grid’ style living. You’ll find 2 glamping areas at Bailey’s on Palomar. One at Cherry Point with 6 sites. 2 safari tent style sites and 4 tiny cabins. The other is Redtail,  a private space with 2 safari tents and ample room for self pitch tents. All of our glamping sites have detached flush toilets and propane heated hot water showers. Comfort, quiet, and serenity, are more than buzzwords at Bailey’s. Our glamping sites combine simple accommodations with the comforts of home – fully made beds, decked out camp style outdoor kitchens, and running water.  What you won’t find are the intrusions of modern life in the city. Both areas are beautiful, quiet and lush with old growth forest.  Neither of our glamping areas offer electricity or wifi. Though, we may have a spare solar powered battery lying around if you absolutely must charge your phone;) 
Batteries are by request only and not guaranteed to be available.

Glamping Season at Bailey’s on Palomar Opens Mid May and runs through Mid October, Weather Depending. 

Camp Redtail

Perfect for small groups or families, Redtail is an exclusive area set above and apart from the rest of our tent and cabin sites. It has 2 safari style tents with a great open area between them for dining, making a campfire and hanging out old school.

Cherry Point

Cherry Point is surrounded by a ravine that leads down to the pond overflow and eventually into Palomar State Park. Each site has its own space and gives our campers a sense of privacy and solitude.
