Unique Camping & Glamping in New England

Camping is a wonderful activity, whether you want a quick getaway from the city or a retreat with friends or family. There are many ways to camp, from using a tent to staying in an RV or cabin. In addition to those standard ways to stay, many campgrounds also offer unique camping options.

Kampgrounds of America provide cool places to camp in New England. Depending on the location, you could experience glamping, yurt camping or other exciting lodgings.

Unique Types of Lodging

Enjoy a relaxing getaway by staying in lodging that lets you have the full unique camping experience. At KOA, you have many ways to enjoy glamping in New England. Each campground has different lodging options, but some of the unique ones besides cabins, tents and RVs include:

  • Yurts: Enjoy staying in a yurt during your KOA camping trip. These structures are inspired and based on ancient shelters created by native tribes in Central Asia. Yurt camping in New England provides you with essentials to keep you comfortable, from a heating and cooling source to a comfortable bed.
  • Cabooses: Get the ultimate camping experience while sleeping in a vintage train caboose from some of the country’s historic railway lines. Sleeping in a caboose is exciting for children and adults alike as you get to pretend that you traveled back in time during your stay.
  • Tepees: KOA also provides lodging options inspired by the North American Plains Native Americans — tepees. The cone-shaped shelter offers fun glamping experiences for campers looking for a new way to camp.
  • Airstreams: Like the cabooses, restored vintage Airstream trailers provide unique camping experiences for guests.
