Whoever said you have to rough it to enjoy the great outdoors? Today, we’re looking at the most scenic and luxurious spots to go glamping in the US. Recharge and rejuvenate your soul amidst nature without sacrificing on modern comforts! We’ll be excluding cabins and turning our focus more on true luxurious camping. Perfect for a different kind of outdoor experience, here are the best spots for glamping in the US!
1. Ithaca by Firelight Camps, New York
Firelight features safari-style tents that’ll make you feel like you’ve stepped into another era. The private balconies offer up gorgeous views, thanks to its location in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, on the grounds of the Lohr L Resort and Spa. Fall is the perfect time to visit Firelight Camps to take advantage of the autumn foliage. For bonus points, the folks behind Firelight Camps had sustainability in mind every step of the way, which ensures that guests do not leave a negative ecological footprint!
2. Terra Glamping, California
Just off the Pacific Coast Highway you’ll find the one-of-a-kind experience of Terra Glamping. If you’ve ever dreamed of waking up and watching the sun rise over the Pacific Ocean from your bed, this is the place for you. You’ll definitely live in comfort, but also enjoy an unplugged experience so you can truly experience your natural surroundings without today’s modern distractions.
3. Ventana Big Sur, California
Some of the most incredible landscapes exist in Big Sur, so of course camping here would be an incredible trip. The Ventana Resort offers up many different types of lodging but for our purposes their safari tents are the way to go! What’s great about this spot is that glampers are able to take advantage of everything else the resort has to offer. Along with all the other amenities these tents come with daily housekeeping, as well as tea and coffee in the morning!
4. Under Canvas Glacier Montana
Under Canvas have the brilliant idea of opening glamping locations in all of the most stunning natural destinations in the United States, and their Glacier National Park location is one of our favourites. This national park is inspiring no matter how you visit. But getting to explore the area and then come home to your own private tent turns it into a dream vacation! You can choose from smaller teepee style tents, or go for the most indulgent safari tent suite which has its own ensuite bathroom.
5. Alpenglow Luxury Camping, Alaska
Did you think it was possible to see the Northern Lights from the United States? In Alaska it definitely is, and there’s no better way to take it in than from Alpenglow Luxury Camping! Their large canvas tents come with private porches which are the perfect places to sit with a glass of wine and stare into the night sky. The site also has a cedar hot tub that’s open in the evenings as well as fire pits. The location may be remote but it is totally worth the journey
6. Fireside Resort, Wyoming
Any outdoorsy type will know that Jackson Hole is one of the most stunning natural destinations in the US. Fireside Resort in Wyoming has become known for their tiny luxury cabins but they also provide a glamping experience like no other! You won’t have to do any work at all setting up a tent here. When you arrive, you’ll be able to settle right into one of the most over-the-top safari tents. Relaxing in the great outdoors is easy when you’re staying somewhere with accommodations like these!
7. Under Canvas Grand Canyon Arizona
We already looked at another Under Canvas location at Glacier National Park and the only one that tops it is the one in the Grand Canyon. It comes as no surprise that any camping here is spectacular, but these extravagant accommodations make it all the better. This spot has many of the same amenities as the other locations, as well as a stargazer tent. With a window in the ceiling, you are in a great spot to take in the gorgeous night sky!
