Nature + creative comforts = a nice camping upgrade.

glampingTake camping, infuse it with a little glamour, and you have “glamping”. The tent is set up for you, complete with a nice bed, outlets and/or heat sources, along with hot showers nearby. Good food and drink are steps away, plus the unspoiled outdoors.

Sometimes glamping takes you out of tents and into barns (The Barn in Tivoli in upstate New York), yurts (Treebones Resort in Big Sur, California), treehouses (Treehouse Point in Fall City, WA), or vintage trailers (Kate’s Lazy Desert near Joshua Tree, CA). Perhaps the most famous U.S. glamping resort is Costanoa, in the mountains south of San Francisco.

Why is glamping addictive? Glamping is camping the way people would like it to be – no sleeping on the ground, no trying to put up a tent in the rain, no sodium-heavy backpacker meals out of a pouch. Additionally, most glamping resorts have a low carbon footprint and are eco-conscious down to a tent peg. Glamping makes for an untraditional camping experience and a nicely unconventional vacation.

Where can you find places to glamp? Visit, or to start searching. Glamping is not always cheap – at the high end, the per-night cost of glamping can approach that of a night in a 4-star hotel – but it is always adventurous and memorable.

While glamping is a hot adventure travel trend, you could also call it a revival. Tent cabins have been in some of our National Parks for generations, and a century ago, they were a staple of “roughing it.” Those historic glampers, however, were without gourmet meals, high-thread-count sheets, and places to plug in.
