5 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.

The Nest

If you hanker for civilization, you’re a short drive from Woodstock, Saugerties, and Kingston.

Other Amenities: Propane grill, mini fridge, coffee maker, cookware and kitchen utensils, dishware, water cooler with hot and cold H2O, bedding

Sleeps: 2 to 4 campers

What You’ll Spend: $120 a night

Treetop glamping
Treetopia, By Christopher Funk

This isn’t your parents’ campground. Instead, 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. Swim in the pool, hike, walk your dog, or just relax in front of your lodgings. You can hook your own RV at Treetopia, too.

Other Amenities: Public restrooms with indoor/outdoor showers and toilets; small grocery store that carries typical campground sundries (including ice cream, coffee, and firewood); a game room with a pool table, arcade games and sofas for TV watching. Plus, you’re close to Catskill, Olana, and Catskill Park.

Sleeps: Depends on what you book. The Jumbo RV is good for a family of 5 (or 4 adults); the standard, a family of 4 (or 3 adults); the tents, a max of 3 people.
