If pitching a tent and sleeping on the cold, hard ground doesn't appeal to you, then glamping is the perfect way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing comfort and amenities. Short for "glamorous camping," glamping allows you to enjoy nature from a fully-equipped luxury tent, yurt, cabin, or even an upscale RV resort.

With cozy beds, electricity, climate control, and often attached bathrooms and living areas, glamping sites provide all the perks of a nice hotel along with an immersive outdoor setting. Whether you're looking for a romantic couple's retreat or an unforgettable adventure with the gals, here are some of the best glamping spots across the U.S. to put on your radar.
