Glamping is quickly becoming very popular all over the United States. So much so, the vacation trend is up 39% this last year. From tents to teepees to treehouses, there are many ways to enjoy this “where nature meets luxury” experience. Here are four of our favorite spots located right here in California...destinations that will have you packing your bags almost immediately for a one-of-a-kind vacation experience.  

1. Safari West

An authentic safari experience located right in the heart of California’s wine country, Safari West features tents that allow guests to be as close to the wildlife as possible. (You’ll be amazed at the wildlife sounds you hear at night!) Whether you choose to join the safari tours, or just relax in your tent under the watchful eye of exotic animals, this is a world-class and wild experience.

2. Sequoia High Sierra Camp

Ideal for couples or solo travelers, Sequoia High Sierra Camp offers the rare opportunity to explore Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park featuring a dramatic landscape of giant Sequoia trees, deep canyons and vast caverns. Did we mention this was a hike-in resort? Now that’s excluded luxury.

3. Beach Canyon Authentic Tipis

Perfect for families or groups...this is a great way to explore all the wonders of the great outdoors without sacrificing all the comforts of home...you know things like hot showers, wi-fi, and wine & cheese, etc...in a natural setting. The resort is surrounded by dozens of hiking trails, horseback riding areas, and even a 5k loop that ends with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean at sunset.  

4. Ventana Big Sur

These majestic “glampsites” are set on the edge of the California coastline...where the ocean, the redwoods and the forest merge. Your safari-style tent is equipped with a plush mattress with luxury hotel linens, and a porch with a fire-pit...perfect to enjoy the views.
