how to plan a summertime glamping trip


Our guide to enjoying a stellar glamping trip during the summertime, no matter where you go.

Glamping is a fun, outdoor adventure that blends a traditional camping experience with a little more comfort. You can enjoy nature and all that it has to offer while staying in a tent or cabin with comfortable bedding, lighting and a few extra luxuries like a grill or fire pit. While glamping sites usually provide cooking gear and sometimes a kitchen, you will want to bring your own food or drinks. There are many different types of glamping locations, and each one has its own amenities.

Depending on where you are going, and how well equipped the glamping site is, you will want to inquire about the bed. If the sleeping situation is more rustic, you may want to bring your own sleeping bag, pillows, or cot. It is also a good idea to bring a few light blankets in case it gets cold or to use around a fire pit. If you plan to go hiking, swimming, or anything outdoors, make sure to pack a swimsuit, towels, hats, sunscreen and mosquito repellant.

It is always a good idea to bring a few extra supplies such as toilet paper, a flashlight, and paper towels. This way, you will be prepared in case anything unexpected happens while on your trip.

A cooler, a camp stove and a few essential kitchen tools will be helpful for cooking meals. Make sure to bring plenty of food and water to last throughout your stay. You can also bring snacks for the trip and a portable charger to keep your phone charged.

During the summer, there are several ways to plan a glamping trip, but a great place to start is by finding the perfect glamp site in a place where the weather is manageable and exactly what you'd like to experience, especially by a body of water like a lake, river, or beach. Most importantly, you must go with people you love and care about. Choose a place that has a variety of things to do, both in the sun and in the shade, as well as offers some amenities to cool off. One tip: make sure your glampsite offers A/C, because the temperatures are very hot in the summer. Plus, it is always nice to have a pool to cool down in.
