Conestoga wagons are 18th-century vehicles that hail from the Conestoga River region of Pennsylvania. Another version became popular in the West, which is the area the curved wooden, canvas-topped buggy is commonly associated with. For a night, guests can play out childhood pioneer dreams by experiencing what life traveling rugged roads and sleeping under the stars was like. Located at The Rock Ranch just one hour south of Atlanta, authentic family bonding moments await.

Wagon Camping at The Rock Ranch
Wagon Camping at The Rock Ranch

Eight old school wagons set on the simple pasture, and each one is equipped with four sets of bunk beds, bringing the total sleeping capacity to eight. One night in the wagon will run $240 for your party, whether it’s maxed or not. Special touches and extras include lanterns, firewood, fire starters, paper towels, cups, hand washing water, drinking water, and an abundance of space to relax and play. I’m sure you’re thinking where the restrooms are—a far step up from camping back in the day, as well maintained portable restrooms are available to guests.

Bring all the food you want, but The Rock Ranch will provide a hot dog dinner for a small extra charge. Hot dogs, buns, ketchup, mustard, chips, lemonade, napkins, skewers and s’mores supplies are included—quite fitting! Cozy up by the roaring fire and even request a storyteller or astronomer. Check-in is after 4:00 pm, and you’ll have to hit the road by 11:00 am.

The Rock ranch was founded by Truett Cathy, who is also the founder of Chick-fil-a. You’ll also find family fun with other attractions like zip-lining, a precious treehouse playground, gemstone mining, games, tractor wagon rides, paddle boating, fishing, a seasonal corn maze, carousel, cow train and a miniature children’s village, just to name a few. Make sure to dive into the ranch’s take on a ball pit, a bin filled with dried corn kernels.
