The Best Places To Go Glamping This Fall

We’ve all heard about it, but have you actually tried? Glamping—or, glamorous camping—is sweeping the nation, and it’s easy to see why. The luxe weekend activity lets travelers get reacquainted with nature and admire fall’s splendour without asking them to give up a comfy bed or their nightly bubble baths. No matter where you live, there’s a chic glamping destination in the U.S. for you. Here, our across-America guide to classy camping.

New York

firelight camps

The best part about glamping? There’s no setup require. This season, New Yorkers can wake up to the brisk autumn air at Firelight Camps, a relaxation destination in Ithaca. Worried about staying connected with the outside world, or fearful of forest critters? Battery-powered lanterns keep the tent well-lit at night while also charging your phone. Other bonus amenities include a writing desk (so you can get down all your back-to-nature thoughts) and a private balcony.  

Rooms begin at $259/night.

Surrounded by Aspen Trees, Dunton River Camp’s four mountain tents offer the whimsical woodsy escape you’ve been waiting for. The best part about this glamping experience is that the bathroom is included in your stay. Each tent comes with an en-suite bathroom with a six-foot soaker tub and shower—so you can keep clean and smell good all weekend long.

Approximately $1,500/night



While Pennsylvanians may find The Shawnee Inn’s glamping set up a bit snug, they’ll appreciate the seclusion. Located on an island in the middle of the Delaware River, the inn’s glamping site can only be accessed by canoe. But that doesn’t mean that they skimp on amenities. Guests have access to Wi-Fi, restrooms and showers, shared hammocks, and a communal campfire space on the private grounds.

Approximately $325/night



At this luxe safari-inspired stay just outside of Austin, TX you don’t have to sacrifice comfort when you want to feel totally immersed in Mother Nature. Sinya at Lone Man Creek’s tents are outfitted with goose down pillows, a separate cozy lounging area, a fully-equipped spa-like bathroom, and a stocked kitchenette.

Begins $325/night
