6 Hudson Valley Glamping Destinations for Outdoor Getaways

If camping under the stars sounds appealing, but you can’t do without the little luxuries— then glamping is definitely for you.

Grab a friend and gear up for a glamorous outdoors overnight trip this summer. Instead of struggling to pitch a tent in the sticky summer heat, dealing with bug bites, and going to the bathroom in the great outdoors, try something the complete opposite: glamping.

If camping under the stars sounds appealing, but you can’t do without the little luxuries—a hot shower, say, or a soft bed— then glamping is definitely for you. And there’s no better place to enjoy nature with some upscale necessities than the Hudson Valley, where all sorts of options await. Here are a few of the best ones we’ve found this season.

Colden Spring Farms


On this 42-acre sustainable vegetable and livestock farm, plop down on one of the Adirondack chairs in front of your tent and gaze at the rolling fields. The tent is set on a platform and comes with a queen-sized bed, complete with memory foam mattress. There’s a sun shower (a solar-heated bag that holds five gallons of H2O and hangs from a tree) and a Tentrr loo (a toilet seat atop a box with a bucket lined with biodegradable bags) in a smaller tent nearby. Angry Orchard’s Cider House and City Winery are a few minutes drive—as are many wineries along the Shawangunk Wine Trail.

Other Amenities: A fire pit, camp table and benches, a grill, grilling utensils, lanterns, and flashlights. For an extra fee, you can rent linens and pillows (otherwise, bring your own), pots and pans, dishes for six, and a cornhole set. You can also buy fresh farm eggs.

This isn’t your parents’ campground. Instead, the Treetopia gives you plenty of luxe glamping options, including AirStreams kitted out with full baths and kitchens and A/C, as well as A-frame cabins and canvas tents.
