Eleven Experience has unveiled Taylor River Lodge, a Colorado mountain retreat with rustic-yet-chic cabins situated on a pristine trout fishing and rafting river just outside of Almont. Rock climbing, hiking and more also are on the menu of activities offered.
For those of us looking for something a little more glamorous than the traditional tentand-sleeping-bag experience, there is Wanderland Popup.
Jason Thomson and Sonia Jozajtis founded their Asbury Park-based business with the motto “rest wild” in mind. Wanderland Popup offers three unique spaces: the Lotus Bell, the Sibley and the Mobile Guest Room. Perhaps the most popular tent, the Lotus Bell is handmade in New Zealand and was named after its Lotus-like shape.
Camping for groups is a bit challenging and not the type of gathering embraced by everyone, but yurts offer a type of lodging that is somewhere between a cabin and tent. Usually round, approximately 20 feet in diameter, waterproof and semipermanent, a yurt typically features a wooden floor, skylight, hardwood walls and canvas for weather protection.
An upscale, comfort-camping experience is what Conestoga Ranch at Utah’s Bear Lake in Garden City is all about. Officially opened on July 1, the 18-acre resort can host up to 160 guests in eight high-end glamping tents with en suite bathrooms featuring hot showers and 16 custom- crafted conestogas, more commonly known as covered wagons. Resort ameni- ties include a main lodge with a restaurant and bar, game tent, bath house, Shake Shack and activities field.
