Maybe you tie a hammock between two trees, snuggle under a scratchy wool blanket and stare up at the stars.
Or maybe your idea of roughing it is settling for 300-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets instead of 1,000 and a concierge-fed campfire that crackles softly outside your apartment-sized tent.
No matter what your style, camping (or, yes, glamping) is good for body, mind and soul.
The sense of awe that nature inspires. Unplugging from screens. Breathing fresh air. And connecting with your crew, free of distractions. It’s all beneficial.
As we continue to be cautious about crowds, camping with your closest friends and family is our No. 1 pick for a safe, healthy vacation adventure this summer.
Looking for an option between total exposure to the elements and getting your glamp on?
Many of Pennsylvania’s state parks rent out cabins and yurts that put nature at your doorstep, without the hassle of pitching a tent. (You’ll probably also have electricity and a fridge, although the bathroom might be primitive and a short walk away.)
