Deep in the heart of Texas there is a campground where the bears have been going to commune with the great outdoors…and each other! Welcome to Grizzly Pines!
Located about 70 miles northwest of Houston in Navasota, Grizzly Pines is Texas’ premier, gay, clothing optional campsite for men. And while it’s not exclusively a bear space we have it on good authority that much of the clientele identifies as part of the community; it is called Grizzly Pines, after all!
In terms of accommodation they have a variety of cabins available to rent that range from the very simplistic all the way to full blown ‘glamping’ in terms of amenities, and all for an unbeatable price range of $50 to $200 per night, housing two to four guests, depending on the cabin. For those wanting a more rugged or traditional camping experience, there are also tent sites that have electric and running water and RV spots for rent with full hook ups.
Grizzly Pines is a year-round campsite, so at any given time of the year there will be something cool going on. There’s a themed event pretty much every weekend of the year. So far this winter they have already had their New Years celebration and bonfire weekend with plenty more planned for the duration of the season. The following is a roundup of upcoming events leading up to the Spring along with tons of pics from last year’s events to help give you a feel for it!
Lumberjack Weekend January 26th -28th
So, admittedly it might be a touch too late to get on this one, unless you live in Texas! So, to all you big, gorgeous Texas bears out there, why not stop in for Lumberjack Weekend?! It will feature a pancake breakfast, drinks at the bar, axe throwing, log rolling and horseshoe throwing. Oh, and a ton of big, beefy men dressed up as lumberjacks. There will be tons of men in good old fashioned bear attire: flannel, plaid, boots — WOOF!
