I’ve always loved nights spent camping under the stars, but as the years go by, mummy-shaped sleeping bags and inflatable air mattress provide little in the way of slumbering support. So when I first heard about glamping, I was all in on fusing my passion for camping with comfort. A mashup of “glamorous” and “camping,” glamping is a trending accommodation style built around camping-like stays with high-end amenities.
Today, I favor spending the weekend roasting marshmallows over a fire and staring up at the Milky Way—then heading inside my tiny home or canvas tent to get a real night’s rest. From wilderness yurts to tiny home resorts, glamping is growing around national parks and incredible destinations across America. And the Golden State is no different. Whether you choose to hang your hat in a luxurious Airstream trailer or sleep in a rugged mountain tent, these five destinations deliver some of the best glamping in California!
