The definition of glamping is simple. It’s almost the same as camping, but a whole lot better! The days of living in the dirt, sleeping on the ground and eating baked beans from a tin are a thing of the past – and frankly, they can stay there. Think clean amenities, comfortable sleeping, and superb food in the middle of nature. Doesn’t this sound heavenly? Keep reading to find out how to get your glamp on, the right way.
Don’t skimp on comfort
The most important aspect of glamping is comfort. Do your research and choose the right campsite to suit your needs. If the campsite is clean, cozy, and has a scenic view, it will set a wonderful tone for your stay. Start with a durable and spacious tent. There’s nothing worse than feeling cramped up. Next, make sure that you choose the right bed. Something that is elevated off the ground and cushy. Don’t forget to bring along some sheets, plenty of pillows, and a warm comforter. Sleeping in a tent doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. The glamping lounge should be a stunning blend of lazy comfort and casual chic. Tables, rugs, and comfortable furniture will create the perfect space to kick back and relax in. Lighting is another important factor to consider. Solar lanterns, fairy lights in the trees, and LED faux candles around the living space will provide a cozy glamping atmosphere.
The glamping campfire is essential. The campfire adds ambiance, warmth, and a place to cook your meals. Plus, what’s better than roasted marshmallows? Just be sure to find out the fire restrictions of your chosen location beforehand. A small metal fire pit is an aesthetically appealing and safer option for fires. Cooking in the wilderness is another incredible experience that you don’t want to miss out on. Bring along some pots, pans, and a kettle that can be used directly on the hot coals. Perfect weather is not always a guarantee so be sure to bring along a portable gas stove as a backup. It’s also always a good idea to bring along plenty of ready-made snacks.
Keep it organized
Setting up different stations around the campsite will go a long way for keeping it organized and looking neat. Set up a table with a bowl of soapy water for washing the dishes as they are used. A large container with clean water and its own tap is such a luxury to have on hand when roughing it outdoors. Set up a kitchen station just for food and beverages. A fold-out table with closed and labeled containers will do the trick. Don’t let the space underneath the tables go to waste. Use this space for storage! Storage towers with big plastic drawers are fantastic for keeping all your cutlery, crockery, and other equipment together.
And finally, don’t forget why you are doing this. To spend time with those who are important to you, to have fun, and to just relax. So don’t forget a good book or two, board games, and some fun outdoor activities.
