Kicking off a new series or trending a new series… – Five on Friday. Enjoy
Not all my friends like roughing it in the woods. By roughing, I mean pitching a tent, putting the sleeping bags on the ground and calling it home for a few days. So, I was trying to think, how do I get my friends outdoors, make the stay a little more comforting but still adventurous? Then I researched to find some awesome alternative camping options.
5 Alternative Camping Options
- Air Stream – Big Sur Getaway, Big Sur, California
- Yurt – Eagle River Nature Center, Alaska
- Treehouse – Treehouse Point, Fall City, Washington
- Native American Tepee – North Georgia Canopy Tours, Lula, Georgia
- Glamping – The Resort at Paws Up, Greenough, Montana
“Boutique Glamping for Real People” is there tagline. At Big Sur Getaway you get to stay the night in a chic, renovated vintage air stream trailer. Where you can kick back, sip a cocktail and enjoy the views that Big Sur has to offer. Rate: starts at $ 185 per night.
You can have a backcountry, rustic adventure at the Eagle River Nature Center. Just pack your backpacking essentials but leave the tent at home. Then hike 2.5 miles to get to the yurt. The accomodations can sleep up to 8 people, offers bunk beds and a wood stove. Rate: $65 a night.
Treehouse Point offers a unique, but luxurious stay in a cozy treehouse. Each treehouse has its own identity and characteristics adding to the uniqueness of the place. Enjoy the fire pit, listen to the sounds of the river and enjoy a continental breakfast at the lodge. Treehouse point is located near Seattle. Call for rates.
These are not any ordinary teepees. The campsites, nestled in the Georgia Forest, are named after the Seven Clans of the Cherokee Indians. Each teepee comes with heating, air conditioning, electricty and sleep up to 10. North Georgia Canopy Tours offer great activities like zipline, geocaching, disc golf and more! Rates start at $90/night.
No need to give up comfort while camping here! Terms like, “Camping Butler to cater to your every whim”, “haute grilled cuisine” and “Private ensuite bathrooms” tickle your fancy? At Paws Up, your accommodations are met with safari style tents while enjoying the beautiful surroundings Montana has to offer. (Be sure to check out the spa bathroom pictures. It’s amazing what you can put in a tent!). Rates: start at $1,275 and include breakfast, lunch and dinner for two adults.
