Hey! Want to go Camping?

I was going to wait a while before I wrote this article, but it’s too good to keep to myself (I’ll get to that in a bit). I also feel that it is the perfect time of the year to write about camping. Summer is coming to an end, but there is still time to take advantage of the warmth by swimming in lakes, kayaking, fishing, or anything else that screams summer fun. I also think this is a good time to talk about camping as fall is approaching. It’s the perfect weather to snuggle up in a sleeping bag at night, but still enjoy the comfortable temperatures.

My family went camping many years ago when our sons were young and in the Boy Scouts.  We always enjoyed it and often talked about going in the future. We even kept all of our camping gear. Fast forward to about seven years ago. The spring season came around and either me or my husband would say, “hey, want to go camping”? This has happened every single year since then. The only thing added to the statement is, “but let’s actually go this time”. Guess what? We still haven’t been camping. Funny, right!

I recently learned about some new options of camping. I’m almost certain that they aren’t new ideas, but they are to me. The term is actually called glamping. According to dictionary.com, glamping is the activity of camping with some of the comforts and luxuries of home. While I am still interested in traditional camping in a tent, I wouldn’t mind trying out one of these options as well.

Mini RVs

Imagine riding in a mini-van that is equipped with bedding, a table, and a hatch that opens up to a mini cooking kitchen. Jucy RV Rentals offers just that. They offer several different styles of mini RVs to accommodate your family size.

Jucy RV Rentals have locations in the United States in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Vancouver. Visit their website for additional information on their RVs.

How about a Tipi stay in Missouri? This rental is so beautiful that I really want to stay there. It is nestled in the woods, and the Airbnb listing states that it is accessible year-round, it’s fully equipped, and offers a hot shower in a temperature controlled bath house. You really have to see this one!

Tree House

This particular treehouse has been on my radar for quite some time, as it is only 2 hours away from me. It is located in Richmond, Virginia and is as cute as can be! You can go back to your childhood staying in this house. The owners offer a private bathroom as well as an indoor option to sleep if the weather gets too hot & humid.

Tent on Top of Truck/Jeep

If you have a pick-up truck or even a hard-top jeep, this might be an option you’d like to consider. It is basically a tent that sits on top of the vehicle. It comes with a ladder so that you can get up to your sleeping space. These roof top tents are available for rent at Off The Grid.

Yurts give a great amount of space with lots of coverage from the outside elements. I found this gorgeous yurt located in the Smoky Mountains. It even has a fully updated kitchen. You truly have to see it to believe it!

    This was such a fun post! We love to tent camp, but we’ve recently sought out some other options in the cold weather, now that we have a baby. I have always wanted to rent a tipi!

    1. Michele Duncan December 26, 2019 at 5:33 pm

      I completely understand that! The tipi really does look like a fun way to go glamping.

    My husband and I love traditional car camping, but it would be fun to try some of these other ideas too! Especially love the thought of staying in treehouse, how fun!

    1. Michele Duncan December 26, 2019 at 5:32 pm

      I agree! Staying at the treehouse is something I would like to do this upcoming spring.

    This year we got a platform tent on top of our truck – as you show above on the Jeep – it has changed my camping life – we go way more often now, off-trail and it is glamourous – saves my back but can still get off the grid. I highly recommend it!

    1. Michele Duncan December 26, 2019 at 5:31 pm

      That’s great! I would love to get something like that for our SUV.

  5. Courtney December 21, 2019 at 11:47 am

    Sign me up for staying in a treehouse! I don’t think I ever outgrew that dream from when I was a kid. 🙂

    1. Michele Duncan December 26, 2019 at 5:32 pm

      I know right! I definitely want to take a trip to stay at this treehouse.
