According to Dyrt’s 2023 camping report, more than 80 million Americans went camping last year, and 1.7 million said that they primarily went glamping. That’s a 10% increase from last year. The Dyrt, a website with more than eight million user-generated reviews for RV, cabin, glamping, and tent camping, put together a list of the best glamping spots. With glamping on the rise, here are the six best glamping destinations to try out.
Price: $40-$330 per night
Just a stone’s throw away from the legendary Big Bend National Park lies Space Cowboys, a glamping experience like no other. This mirror space pod ranked #1 on Dyrt’s 2023 report, and there’s no question why. Nestled in the heart of the Texas landscape, this glamping spot was forged by the fiery forces of nature itself. Made predominantly of volcanic rock, it offers a jaw-dropping 360-degree view of Big Bend National Park and the majestic mountains that encircle it.
Price: $80 per night
The Desert Glamping Getaway was created by the Arcadian American Farms (AAF) with a focus on offering a glimpse into the future with modern farmsteading and glamping. Located just off Highway 40, this spot is just 25 miles from Kingman. It’s only two hours (or less!) from many amazing destinations, such as the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff, Las Vegas, and more.
Price: $125-$175 per night
Brace yourself because the 105 West Ranch glamping site is one of the highest destinations in the United States. Perching at nearly 10,000 feet above sea level, you can view the 100-acre expanse of pristine Colorado mountain land. Explore over three miles of private hiking trails, and check out Pikes Peak. But don’t think that this glamping spot is too remote — a mere 15-minute drive will transport you to the charming town of Victor, and 25 minutes will get you to Cripple Creek and its tourist attractions.
Price: $97-$156 per night
The Smoky Mountains is a must-visit for all camping enthusiasts, so why not try glamping at the Smoky Mountain Mangalitsa? This picturesque location is set on a private property that was once used for raising dairy cattle. Now, the farm raises and sells the Hungarian Mangalitsa pig to the best chefs and restaurants.
Price: $110-$490 per night
