Ultimate Girlfriend Glamping Getaway

We visited as a guest of the Ventura Ranch KOA

My girlfriends and I had been wanting to have a getaway together for such a long time. We didn’t want to take the traditional girlfriend getaway like to Palm Springs or Vegas. One of my friends suggested that we take a girls glamping trip to the Ventura Ranch KOA.

Glamping with Friends at KOA

Most of my friends had never been camping before, and they were excited to experience glamping as their first “camping” experience. The Ventura Ranch KOA was just a short drive from Orange County and is nestled in the beautiful Ventura mountains. The minute that I arrived at the KOA, I felt all my stress from parenting drift away while in the serene environment.

Beautiful Ventura

The Ventura Ranch KOA offers something for every camper. There are places for guests to park their trailers, set-up tents or stay in a luxurious cabin or fun teepee. We parked our car in front of one of the luxurious cabins and unpacked all our stuff for the weekend.

Inside the Ventura Ranch KOA Cabins

The cabin provided everything that we needed for the weekend. There is a spacious bathroom, luxe kitchen, bedroom, and a sleeping loft. Plus, the kitchen comes complete with everything families need to prepare meals, and there is even a barbecue on the porch.

Ammunition Wines

We started the trip by opening a bottle of our favorite Ammunition Wine and toasted to an unforgettable weekend together. Together with my friends, we sat on the porch, sipping on wine, enjoying catching up while watching the beautiful sunset.

We then went into our cabin where we listened to music and stayed up all night talking while in our matching pjs. We felt like we were teenagers again having a festive PJ party.

Melissa's Produce Avocado Toast

When the sun came up the next morning, I used all our favorite Melissa’s Produce to create an avocado toast buffet. I toasted bread, and my friends were able to create their own avocado toast creation using fresh avocado, tomatoes, pine nuts, and egg. It was a healthy start to our day exploring the Ventura Ranch KOA.

Best Places for a girlfriend getaway

Once breakfast was made, we got our swimsuits on to take a quick swim. The weather was a little chilly for swimming the weekend that we visited, but we didn’t let that stop us. After a quick swim, we walked down by the river. It was such a beautiful place to relax and decompress from the stresses of parenting.

Later that afternoon, we had a blast tie-dying shirts, jumping on the giant trampoline and feeling like kids again. It was a fun day that we spent creating memories together that will last a lifetime.


We ended our day by driving into the town and had dinner at Enzo’s that is located in the historic Glen Tavern Inn. The restaurant featured delicious steak, pasta, and some of the best bread I’ve ever had.

Yoga at the Ventura Ranch KOA

The next morning we woke up and did yoga together down by the river using our CGear Sand-free yoga mats. It was the perfect ending to our memorable weekend glamping getaway. We all gave each other a giant hug and then went our separate ways back to care for our children.
