glamping_setup.jpgGlamping (a.k.a. Unrough Camping) is a fantastic solution for those who want to experience the outdoors but don’t want to give up their creature comforts. EasyCampingLists.com puts it this way.

“Glamping is a halfway house that allows many of the comforts of a stay in a cottage or cabin whilst still being a type of camping.”

You may be wondering, “what should I take?” Much of that depends on where you’ll be glamping, and what’s provided. Is it a cabin, RV or a tent? What provisions and amenities are already there? Of course, you should check with the glampground you’ll be visiting for that information, but here are some ideas from other glampers.

Surviving in Style suggests:

  • A fun pair of thongs for during the day (the more sparkle, the better!) and iPod with speakers and well-stocked playlist.

  • An Espresso Maker and a Bartender’s Cocktail Travel Bar.
