There is no doubt that glamping activity is on the rise. Camping but with a dash of glamor in the form of light amenities like heating, air conditioning, soft linens, wi-fi, kitchenettes and even a sauna or hot tub, glamping offers the right balance of courage and comfort to make for an affordable, comfortable and memorable weekend, without the type 2 fun you can experience on a traditional camping trip.
And where there’s nature, there’s glamping, which means the diverse landscape of the United States offers plenty of opportunities to wake up in countless glamping options, like canvas tents, treehouses, trailers, and unique stays like renovated silos and watchtowers (more on that later). Whether you’re dipping your toe into the world of camping, wanting to treat yourself, or planning a badass group trip, the options below are great places to do it. Spread across (most of) the US, these are the best of the best we’ve found on our own glamping trips, but never fear, there’s plenty more where that came from, just check out their corresponding guides.
So choose your player (or state) and get out friends.
