Backland Luxury Camping

Camping with housekeeping? Yes, please. Backland Luxury Camping in Williams has mastered the art of having your cake and eating it too: luxury eco-lodging with farm-to-table chef-prepared cuisine, luxury linens and the serenity of connecting deeply with nature in its purest form.

Backland Luxury Camping is nestled in the heart of 160 acres within the national forest about 20 minutes from Williams. The adventure starts on a path less traveled, the kind of road Robert Frost would have approved. Except this road even has its own dedicated route guidance on an app. Backland partnered with VoiceMap Audio Tours for a welcoming voiceover guiding you along eight miles of scenic and beautiful unpaved roads toward your final destination. Along the route, you may see cows and wildlife and, depending on the time of day, feel sunbeams make their way shining through the ponderosa pine, bringing with it waves of invigorating aromatics. Recommend windows down, sunroof open.

Upon arrival at the site, let meaningful experiences in nature commence. During the day, enjoy fishing off the dock of the pond, Otis Redding-style. After the tides roll away, jump in a kayak for a soul-invigorating paddle around the pond. Lace up your boots for a nature scavenger hunt, and stroll along one of Backland’s trails. Grab a pair of binoculars to see if you can catch one of the many bird species that frequent the property, including bald eagles, ospreys and blue herons. As dusk turns to night, settle by the fireside to roast s’mores. Take a peek through one of Backland’s telescopes at craters on the moon or even Saturn’s rings. Best of all, these amenities are complimentary. 

Move over, granola bars; Backland has chef-prepared culinary delights within steps of the above-mentioned activities. As the sun rises, enjoy an IG-worthy continental breakfast spread including fresh crepes, fresh fruit, a yogurt bar, pastries, piping-hot coffee and fresh juice. Dinner is served nightly from 6 to 9 p.m. The dinner menu rotates seasonally and a selection of wine, beer, and cocktails is available to complement your meal.

When slumber beckons your name, all Backland suites feature panoramic windows, plush king-sized beds with luxury linens, electricity, full en-suite bathrooms with showers and Beekman 1802 goat milk toiletries, and yes, even housekeeping.

There is so much to do, you may want to stay an extra day or two. Because after all, having your cake and eating it is too good for just one day.
