Have you heard of “glamping?” It’s been around for awhile but I JUST heard of it, and I was fascinated. I have a forestry degree and I have spent more than my fair share of time roughing it in the woods, so I was tickled to learn more about this glamorous camping alternative. Basically, glamping is being outside but with all the conveniences of the indoors. I think it’s funny, cool and totally something that I would do!

After doing a little research, I pulled together my top 5 tips for glamping – things that I intend to do when (not if) I go. Click through the jump to see them!
