US glamping comes with views of the mountains, beach, or desert.
From alpine mountains and sweeping canyons to sandy beaches and arid desert plains, the United States has a natural backdrop to fit any outdoor adventure. Camping in the US isn’t just about driving your big-rig across state or backcountry camping along the Appalachian Trail. There are also glamping options available in many of the country’s national parks and more than 6,600 state parks, ranging from romantic treehouses and comfortable glamping tents to family-friendly camper cabins. Cozy up in a mountain lodge beneath the sweeping cliffs of Zion National Park, rent a vintage Airstream or luxury safari tent by Yellowstone National Park, or check into a tiny House or tipi on the cusp of the Rocky Mountains National Park. Glamping is possible year-round, whether admiring the fall foliage from a log cabin in Acadia National Park or hitting the ski slopes from your heated yurt at Golden Gate Canyon State Park.
Derived from the words "glamorous" and "camping," glamping is a type of outdoor stay combining camping's nature setting with the luxury and convenience of comforts like beds, warm showers, or electricity. When glamping, there's no need to bring your own tent—instead, glampers may stay the night in a cabin, canvas bell tent, dome, yurt, pod, vintage trailer, tiny home, or even a treehouse.
