Boasting eight spacious tents on a 500-acre former cattle ranch, Dunton River Camp is a one-of-a-kind glamping experience. Choose between mountain tents nestled in Aspen trees or river tents that sit steps above the West Fork of the Dolores River. All of the tents are outfitted with king beds, ensuite bathrooms with a 6ft soaker tub, gas stoves, and a mountain bike to get around the property. Rather sleep in a log cabin? Check out Dunton Hot Springs instead, a romantic 1800’s ghost town set in Colorado's extraordinary alpine valley.
We get it, the outdoors has its downside. There's no air conditioning, bugs everywhere, and worst of all, it's unlikely you'll find an 80-inch smart television with a 7:1 surround sound system. That said, if the thought of an outdoor vacation is still appealing, but you're not in love with the idea of sleeping in that grimy old tent in the garage from that one time you went to the lake in your teens, then "glamping" could be the answer for you.
While it might not offer every single comfort of home, it's the perfect middle ground, combining the proximity to nature you get on a traditional camping trip with the comfort and relaxation of a hotel stay. The best glamping in the USA will take you from the White Mountains of New Hampshire to the redwoods of California. And if tents aren’t really your thing that’s fine too—there are glass domes, covered wagons, Airstreams and plenty more unique and memorable accommodation options to choose from instead.
So whether you’d prefer to watch the sun setting over Manhattan while you sip cocktails at a Governor’s Island glampsite or indulge in a luxurious spa treatment with views of Blackfoot Valley in Western Montana, we’ve rounded up a bunch of the best places to enjoy a luxury camping experience across the United States. Book one of these dreamy spots for an amazing glamping vacation this summer.
