A Guide for Glamping in the Great Outdoors

A Guide for Glamping in the Great Outdoors

Have you ever wanted to enjoy the wonders of the great outdoors without sacrificing your favorite creature comforts? If so, you might enjoy glamping. Glamping takes camping to another level, allowing you to partake in all the outdoor adventures you want while still being able to end the day in a comfortable, luxurious home base. 

Camping vs. Glamping: What Is Glamping?

Camping is about getting away from the hubbub of daily life and swapping modern luxuries and amenities for a simpler way of living. For many, camping means no internet access, dozing in sleeping bags on the forest floor and cooking meals over a fire pit. 

Glamping, on the other hand, is an elevated camping experience. Campers stay in modern, furnished accommodations while enjoying their favorite luxuries and amenities, such as Wi-Fi, comfortable beds with linens and plumbing. For a typical camping getaway, you likely will not have access to technology. With glamping, however, you can still use your mobile devices — if you want to. 

Glamping can mean something different to each person. For example, some glampers shun Wi-Fi, while others vlog or blog about their glamping experience in real-time. At its heart, glamping is about having the best of both worlds. You can stay connected and have access to conveniences like showers and restrooms while enjoying classic camping experiences, such as stargazing and eating s'mores around a campfire.

What to Pack for Your Next Glamping Getaway

What you pack for your next glamping adventure will depend on where you are going, the time of year and the activities you plan to do. However, some universal glamping packing essentials include:

  • Weather- and activity-appropriate clothing and shoes
  • Basic toiletries, including shampoo and conditioner
  • Blankets, pillows and bedding — if they are not already provided
  • Sunscreen
