What is Glamping? {Fancy Camping}

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.

What is glamping? I really love the trend of glamping… have you heard of it?  Glamping is the fancy shortened word for glamorous or luxurious camping and it is considered a new form of travel.  I think my favorite part is that you can be so creative when you created your campsite or camper and really bring a touch of luxury to the outdoors. Glamping seems to be popular in Texas, Tennessee, California, Florida, Colorado and New England.

This is not for survivalists, but for families who love to be outside and like to travel in style. The convenience of camping is also a really important part of it.

No tent to pitch?  I’m in!

Fancy Camping Ideas

What is Glamping? Glamping Ideas

Let’s take a look at some of my favorite fancy camping ideas…

Yes friends… that is a metallic good strip across the middle of this updated camper by Whippy Cake.

It is all perfection and she tells you exactly the do’s and don’ts of painting a vintage camper.

Luxury Glamping

There are several glamping resorts which feature outdoor living but have resort style amenities. I found many glamping resorts near me in New England and Autocamp in Falmouth, Ma (Cape Cod) is a spot that a few of my friends have visiting and love it! Autocamp is more of a luxury resort featuring airstreams to rent.

This outdoor bedroom featured on Homedit is just breathtaking.  To me, this is taking an entire bedroom into the woods and I love the wood floors.

Here is our version of camping from years past. You can see my glamping home tour if you are new here.  If you have been following me for a while,  you know that we glamped for a few years on the lake each summer.

I loved our deck at the campsite. Just like inside our home, I like to style our outdoor spaces the same way. In my opinion, outdoor spaces are a great way to extend the inside of your home, outside.
