5 Best Campgrounds for Glamping

The rugged camping lifestyle isn’t for everyone. Sleeping in sleeping bags and setting up tents? No, thank you.

And hey, much as we love the RV life at Outdoorsy Bayfield, we get that not everyone travels that way. Or, maybe your an avid RVer and you just want to try something new and more luxurious?

If so, we have you covered with our luxury tents tucked along the Pine River.

No matter where you roam, glamping is for those who wish to experience the beauty of the outdoors without its discomforts, and there isn’t a shortage of campgrounds that cater to these crowds. 

Here’s a collection of some of the best campgrounds for our fellow glampers.

Outdoorsy Stays

Stays is Outdoorsy’s brand new platform that’s a glamper’s dream — enjoying the outdoors without sacrificing the comforts of the indoors. We have spots ranging from luxury cabins to yurts to vintage Airstream glamping to seaside treehouses, and so much more.

Our Stays are as unique as each owner and all of them help you connect with the outdoors in style.

On top of that, Outdoorsy even now has its own campgrounds that offer glamping. From Yosemite in California to our very own Outdoorsy Bayfield, you can get the outdoor hotel resort experience wherever you go. Talk about luxury AND convenience.
