What is Glamping?

Glamorous Camping” is what this is called. And because our society is a huge fan of mashing words together to make up new ones, we now have GLAMPING. The glamorous part means that you are camping in style. Not in some cheap-o tent on the ground in the woods,…. like a savage. But in a comfy bed, with heat or AC, and a TV. (like 95% of the RV’s out there, just sayin).

This Luxury Camping offers an easy escape from the norm and into the outdoors without all the commitments of regular camping. There’s minimal work, more time to explore, and no dirt. Essentials in the life of luxury.

Key Differences Between Glamping and Camping:

Cooking – You’ll have a full kitchen to navigate, no cooking on a fire with a small portable kitchen on a table.

Sleeping – Full size beds are the norm, not sleeping bags on the ground.

Creature Comforts – Heat and AC keeps you at a comfortable temp.

Space – Small tiny tents are not a part of the glamping style.

Storage – More space keeps you from needing to use portable and folding type equipment.

Location – Camping in better locations than you can with a full size 40′ rig.

What to bring with you Glamping:

Money. Lots and lots of money! With all of the amenities setup for you, don’t expect it to be done for free.
