Glamping: What It Is & Where You Can Do It in The Trinity Wilderness Area

Yurt Interior for Glamping

The word “vacation” means something different to everyone. To some, it means lounging on the beach or by the pool of a resort. For others, it might mean traveling somewhere exotic and squeezing in all of the culture and sightseeing you can.

Some people are still searching for their ideal vacation; something that offers the perfect combination of relaxation and exploration. If that sounds like you, then a glamping experience might be exactly what you’re looking for!

What is glamping?

The term “glamping” is short for glamorous camping. Essentially, it’s a more modern and luxurious spin on traditional camping. When you’re camping, you’re sleeping in a tent or under the stars and cooking your food over a fire. When you’re glamping, you’re staying in a cabin, RV, or other structured shelter with all of the amenities you’re used to, such as running water, plumbing, cooking appliances, comfortable sleeping space, heat/AC, and sometimes Wi-Fi.

Glamping allows you to enjoy the great outdoors with all of the conveniences of home. It’s the perfect getaway for families with young children, inexperienced campers, or anyone looking for easy comfort with access to the beauty of nature.
