The word glamping was invented for spots like this. Set within 160 acres of forest on the California coast, there are two glamping sites at Ventana—Redwood or the hike-in-only Canyon (both come with stunning views, of course). Each tent comes equipped with heated blankets, a king bed, a picnic table, and separate gas and wood-burning fire pits. Throw in daily housekeeping and morning coffee, and this is the fanciest camping you can do.
If you like the thought of an outdoor vacation, but you're not in love with the idea of sleeping in that old tent in the garage that's leftover from your cooler days, then "glamping" could be the answer for you. 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.
