You love the idea of getting back to nature and exploring the world around you. At the same time, you hate the idea of bugs, dirt, and having none of the amenities of home.
If this describes you, then perhaps you would be interested in one of the newest trends to be popular – glamping. That’s right, glamping, which is the combination of glamour and camping.
When it comes to glamping, there are plenty of reasons why you might want to try this new trend this summer. Not only do you get the camping without the bugs and backaches, but you also get the joy of running water and an actual toilet.
As one of the hottest and most popular travel trends to-date, glamping is the perfect solution for people who want to experience the best of both worlds – camping and staying in luxury.
If you have never really researched this new trend before, then you might not have an idea what to expect. And that’s okay, because we are here to help.
Think about heading out to a campsite that still offers you the joy of nature, but rather than the tent you might imagine, your new campsite is much more luxurious. Perhaps you find yourself sleeping in an actual bed (think a hotel queen), with bed linens that make you think of sleeping on clouds. On top of that, a full bathroom with all of the amenities you expect from a resort stay. Even wi-fi is a part of a glamping getaway, and of course this is just the start of what you might find.
Every glamping destination is different and will offer something unique. If you want to find the perfect place to take the girls or your partner, all while getting your nature appreciation on, then you can always search for glamping sites online. Or you could try one of these three destinations found in the United States.
A BBQ-in-a-Box dinner is a must-have during your trip at Collective Yellowstone. The options for these grill-ready boxes include elk burgers, cider-brined pork chops, portobello mushrooms, and trout with lemon and herbs grilled lakeside. https://t.co/Erf7Jp9o4x pic.twitter.com/vrHCqk5OYg

Located in Montana, this luxurious camping location is the perfect blend of glamour and camping. Much like the name implies, you will have the chance to explore Yellowstone, while still taking your rest in accommodations that are worthy of a hotel or resort.
While you still get to camp out in a tent, these are not your average tents. Instead, you will find yourself sleeping under chandeliers, with a wood burning stove to keep you warm, as well as bedding that makes you feel like you are resting in the lap of luxury (because really you are).

The Catskills have a history of camping and unique summer accommodations (and thanks to Dirty Dancing we all wanted a chance to stay in a cabin for the summer and learn to dance with Patrick Swayze). At the Eastwind, you can choose to go old school and stay at their hotel (but where is the fun and adventure in that), or if you truly want to get your glamping on, then try one of their Scandinavian-style glamourous camping sites.
Simple structures will make even the most minimalist traveler happy, even as you have all the amenities you expect from glamping. Besides the bathrooms and saunas, there is wi-fi and barbecue kits so that you can truly enjoy your summer camping excursion.
Although there are plenty of other glamping destinations in the United States and even around the world, these three locations top our list because of what they have to have offer. From the west coast to the east, there is a little something for anyone looking to enjoy nature, while still enjoying the creature comforts of a luxury resort.
