5 of the Best Glamping Spots in the US

One of the hottest vacation trends is a glamping trip. Glamping is differentiated between the traditional camping trip by the number of premium amenities afforded by this type of outdoor adventure. Instead of sleeping bags, glampers may be treated to plush pillowtop mattresses. Or instead of huffing it to the outhouse in the middle of the night through the woods when nature calls, you can enjoy the convenience of a private bathroom in your sleeping quarters. If you want to take part in the experience of getting up close and personal with Mother Nature without all of the rugged roughing it of camping, a glamping trip may be the perfect vacation for you. Here are five of the top places in the US to consider for your glamping trip:

1. DUNTON RIVER CAMP

Experience a true Rocky Mountain High at this glamping gem. Guests to this site can choose between deluxe mountain tents with views of the towering 14,000-foot El Diente Peak or river tents that offer views of the Dolores River.

Dine on fresh fruits and vegetables from the camp’s own private farm and vineyard as you camp in style.
