Glamping Where Nature Meets Luxury in New York
Elevate your New York camping trip at Firelight Camps in Ithaca. You’ll sleep among trees in the wilds of upstate New York in furnished tents outfitted with plush beds and private patios—plus lanterns and a writer’s desk. Shared bathhouses have hot showers, flushing toilets, and eco-friendly bath products available.
However, the best thing about Firelight may be the complimentary locally sourced breakfast served every morning in the lobby with fresh and seasonal fruit, yogurt, house granola, hard-boiled eggs, and more. Artisan coffee and hot tea are available all day.
By night, socialize around the communal campfires or play board games, bocce ball, and corn hole. Daytime hiking to Upper Buttermilk Falls is accessible from camp.

Sleep in a custom safari tent imported from Botswana and enjoy your own viewing deck, wood flooring, and en-suite bathroom. Skip foraging and dine at Savannah Café, then later enjoy a delicious continental breakfast as the sun rises.

Rustic Tent & Cabin Glamping Accommodations Near Yosemite National Park
We love exploring Yosemite National Park, but finding a campsite inside the park is a challenge. If you’re looking for a laid-back retreat, Yosemite Bug, a former Boy Scout-camp-turned-resort, fits the bill. It offers private cabin and tent accommodations just 35 minutes from the park entrance.
We’ve stayed here more than once because the beds inside the tents are more comfortable than any hotel’s, and June Bug Café—the on-site restaurant—offers healthy fare with communal vibes. There’s even a hidden hot tub and health spa behind the restaurant. Tent stays require the use of shared bathrooms, but each shower and stall is completely private.
