Glamping is the Latest Trend for Enjoying the Outdoors

Retro RVAre you one of those people who enjoys the outdoors but you don't entirely want to rough it? Well then, "glamping" (glamorous or luxury camping) might be the thing for you! While on a glamping holiday you can be sure of a few things: 

1. You won’t have to worry about finding the perfect terrain to pitch a tent.
2. You won’t have to get up in the middle of the night to patch a leak.
3. You might find it difficult to go back to primitive camping.

Not only will you be sleeping in a comfy bed, you will also have running water, indoor washrooms, electricity, fridges, stoves, and sometimes even air conditioning! 

Canadian Trailblazer blogger Matt Long recently went glamping in Prince Albert National Park. Learn more about his experience here.

Saskatchewan has a number of operators who offer glamping options. Some are located near parks and resorts, and some operators will even bring your RV to you. Here are a few ideas:
