Welcome to Glamping Is Camping! My goal is to inspire and equip those who want a glammed-up camping experience, whether that is in your own backyard or somewhere a little more adventurous.
My camping journey
When I grew up, my family wasn’t big on camping, but we did use tents as a low-cost accomodation. Sometimes that meant we stopped at a KOA instead of a hotel and pitched a tent. And sometimes that meant an extra “bedroom” set up in our yard or that of a relative we were visiting.
After I married, my husband and I realized that our vacation game could be improved by saving money by staying in a tent so we could have the cash to spend on other things. So we started camping for budgetary reasons, but soon enjoyed the experience for itself.
A good campground with clean bathrooms became super important to us as we began having children, and we were very inspired by the fun string lights and colorful rugs of other, more experienced campers. I hadn’t heard the term glamping at that point, but once I did, I was ALL IN.
Are you looking for ideas to improve (or begin) your camping experience?
I have frequently browsed the internet for inspiration for our own campsites, and there is so much out there that I thought it would be fun to collect some of my favorite ideas and tips on one website to share with others.
We are still tent campers, but it’s fun to dream about vintage trailers and remodeled Airstreams. And treehouses and yurts and other alternatives to your typical American camp.
I want to help you have FUN camping!
Glamping is accessible to people with a variety of budgets and styles. I want you to have the tools you need to have an outdoor living experience that fills your soul with delight and wonder.
