When you hear the word “camping” do you instantly think of sleeping on the ground, dirt, bugs, and discomfort? Did you have a negative camping experience as a Boy Scout
or during sleep away camp? Well camping these days is anything but uncomfortable. But what are your options? Let’s take a look. Rent a Cabin or Cottage
The most logical, and perhaps the most convenient way to camp in comfort and luxury is to rent a cabin or cottage at the campground of your choice. You’d be hard-pressed to find a campground in the U.S. that doesn’t offer some type of cottage or cabin to rent among the tent and RV sites.
The size of the cabin will differ depending on the campground and the size of your family, but you’d be surprised at how nice this camping option is. Most cabins and cottages come stocked with some of your basic amenities including dishes and pots and pans for cooking. Some offer towels, sheets, and other bathroom necessities for renting. Cabins can range from 1 to 2 or even 3 bedrooms. You’ll have a full-service bathroom with hot running water, air conditioning, television, and Wi-Fi.
When you aren’t spending time indoors, most cabin sites offer a small driveway for your vehicle, bikes, and/or golf cart. You’ll likely find a grill for cooking and a fire ring for roasting marshmallows and relaxing. Depending on the season, some campgrounds require guests to rent cabins for a 7-night minimum, but you may find certain locations that offer different rates for shorter stays. Have a Trailer Delivered
Do you feel like renting a cabin is too far removed from the camping life? If you still can’t bring yourself to sleep in a tent but purchasing an RV or trailer just isn’t in your budget, having an RV delivered to your campsite is an amazing option.
There are several companies available in different parts of the U.S. that will actually tow a trailer to certain campgrounds, park it, stock it, and pick it up when your vacation is over. Not only is all the hard work done for you, but these trailers usually come stocked with paper products, bathroom necessities, dishes, cooking utensils, and more! The only thing you’re responsible for is keeping the trailer clean, emptying the tanks, and having fun! If you’ve never camped in a trailer or RV before and are unfamiliar with how to empty the water and waste tanks
, its suggested you travel with friends that know a thing or two about trailers. That, or do a little research before your trip. This will save you a lot of aggravation during your stay. When renting a camper just keep in mind that you’ll be paying for both the rental and the site. Go Glamping
Glamping has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. Glamping refers to any type of camping that is more glamorous than it is “roughing” it. Some people consider any type of camping that doesn’t involve a tent as glamping. Having the luxuries of home like heat and air conditioning, hot running water, and television are considered glamping amenities. Most of these things are found in your typical RV or trailer, and of course in a cabin or cottage. But what about if you could get all of these luxuries in a tent?
That’s right, there are actually unbelievable glamping tents available at luxury locations like Yellowstone National Park. Companies like Under Canvas
offer gorgeously decorated and accommodating canvas tents for rental. These tents are anything but ordinary. They’re equipped with full-size beds and mattresses, decks, ceramic sinks, showers, and even the option for a stargazing window above the bed for night time enjoyment!
Think it couldn’t get better? You’d be wrong! Some resorts actually offer 24-hour staff to assist guests with anything they need or require and onsite restaurants. If the tent you choose isn’t equipped with its own shower and toilet, guests have access to nearby bath-houses, similar to other campgrounds. You can even rent one or more of these amazing tents for a wedding or corporate event. These tents take glamping to a whole other level! Camping Isn’t What it Used to Be
This couldn’t be truer! Camping isn’t just rolling out an old sleeping bag and hoping you don’t get attacked by mosquitoes in your sleep. Now, there are so many amazing and accommodating options for those people who want to experience the outdoors with some of the comforts of resort living. Which of these options sounds best to you? Happy glamping!
