National Glamping Weekend June 2 – 3 Glamour Camping

April 6th, 2012 by Craig Mullins

Personally, I love camping in the dirt. I love the tent on the ground, the smell of pine and smoke on everything, the cooking over fire, the trekking to a bathroom in the middle of the night – all of it. Others, however, need a few more creature comforts than that, requiring such things as hot water and a mattress.

For them, I recommend Glamping or Glamour Camping. Never heard of it? Simply put, Glamping is glamorous camping.

According to Wikipedia, Glamping is:

…a growing global phenomenon that combines camping with the luxury and amenities of a home or hotel. Also called boutique camping, luxury camping, posh camping or comfy camping, glamping allows travelers to experience nature without the hassle of finding camp space, carrying their tents, and erecting and taking down their own tents. Lodgings at a glamping sites include structures such as yurts, tipis, pods, bell tents, safari tents, tent cabins, and tree houses. They range in price from as little as $50 per night to thousands of dollars per night, depending on the level of luxury. Sites offer amenities such as fresh bed linens, en suite washrooms, food service, private verandas, and, most importantly, direct access to the great outdoors.

If you’re new to the idea of Glamping and want a try it out, give it a shot during National Glamping Weekend, which falls on June 2nd & 3rd this year.
