1. Accommodations With Structures and Floors

When you are planning your glamping experience you want to look for accommodations that have floors and a structure. If they don’t then this is not glamping, it would be considered camping. Glamping has a sturdy structure where you feel a bit secure from the elements and the bugs. 

Some experiences such as glamping zion will have their accommodations feel really comfortable and homey with great linens, pillows, and possibly a throw rug. 

2. Ambiance

Glamping is all about the ambiance. Look for a place that takes care of the small details such as strings of lights, lanterns, cute pillows, chairs, tables, and other decorative knick-knacks that add to the experience. 

Some places will go the extra mile and add things like bathrobes and shower shoes to give you the experience and feeling of luxury glamping.

3. Bedding

When looking for the perfect glamping place to stay check how their sleeping arrangements are. Glamping means you should be sleeping comfortably – not on a cot or an air mattress. The key is to have a comfy bed along with comfortable sheets, blankets, and pillows. 

4. Climate Control

If you are planning on glamping in a state where the weather is too hot or too cold, you want to ask if they have climate control in the unit you will be staying in. Some places will have air conditioning if it is too hot and others will have some type of heater if it is too cold or electric blankets on your bed. 

5. Bathroom

Using a porta potty is not considered glamping, you want to choose a place that offers a real toilet and hot running water so that you can shower and be comfortable during your outdoor adventures. Some accommodations will have their own private bathroom and shower attached or close by. 

Others will have a separate building that you can go to take your showers and use the toilet. Some glamping hosts will go the extra mile and provide you with soap, shampoo, and other bath essentials. No matter the bathroom that is available it should be immaculate and clean to give you the feeling of “glamping.”
