Glamour + Camping = Glamping

Jul 20, 2016 10:20:17 AM / by DISH Outdoors posted in RV, Camping, Glamping


Imagine camping with no complicated tent to setup, no back aches from your sleeping conditions, and little sacrifice given from your normal living conditions. This is what we like to call Glamping. It combines the idea of glamour and the concept of camping to make for a more than enjoyable experience. And if you think this sounds like a great way to spend your weekend then we've got some great tips for you on how to make Glamping your new favorite weekend activity!  



There are many ways to setup the perfect glamping site. Some glampers have taken advantage of smaller camper trailers like the above photo. They are small enough to pull behind a car, yet you still have room for a comfy bed, your tech essentials and any other supplies you may need. Other glampers find an over sized, open tent makes for a great glamping experience. You can have a full size bed, a sitting area and your essentials all in one place. It's like your bedroom is completely transplanted to an outdoor setting. You can hear the birds chirping in the morning and wake up to fresh air. Sounds pretty amazing! If you have electricity where you're glamping, you can even connect some great lighting OR if you're trying to keep it somewhat simple, lanterns work great too! There are also several places who have started to rent out glamping locations. They provide the setting, you just come and stay! Here are some great places to check out ----> 



Aside from a comfy bed, your favorite book, a fan to cool you off and a campfire for a source of heat, there are a few other fun items that will make the experience even more glamorous! Add some luxurious bedding and throws with some great lighting (lanterns, lamps, flashlights, etc) to set the mood. Delicious food and wine should also be a top priority on the list. Camping is all about hot dogs and S'Mores but why not making glamping all about chocolate, easy gourmet dinners and wine? In order to to have those things you'll want a cooler than keeps your food and wine cool and if you need things warm, it will do that too! We also found some awesome camp stoves that can create those wonderful meals. If you want to keep it glamorous, these are all essential items to add to your checklist!



A weekend of glamping is entertainment in itself but there are always things you can do to make your time more enjoyable. Aside from having great conversation and reading your favorite book check out some other activities! has compiled a great list of activities that are relaxing and fun. Check them out here!

As you can see, glamping is a great way to kick back and relax without having to sacrifice the luxuries of home. You can make it as glamorous as you would like. And the best part is that you don't need a lot of money to do it! Happy Glamping!
