Here’s where to camp if you actually hate camping, but kinda love nature

By  •  4 months ago  •  Travel, Camping, Nature

“Camping is awesome.” Some people say that. I guess it’s more or less accurate. Depends on your definition of “awesome,” obviously. But, what kinda bugs me is this war between “campers” and “glampers.” Why do I have to choose between a pampered camping-like outing, and “roughing” it? Does it make me any less of a “camper.” Yeah, okay, it sorta does. Particularly when your “glamp” (is the noun of glamping a thing?) is more kitted out than an upscale boutique hotel. Ooh, boutique camping! Let’s just call it that! Well, regardless, if I was offered a stay at AutoCamp along the Russian River, I’d totally spend a weekend in style…

The California-based luxury camping company combines the best parts about camping (like being walking distance from beaches and Redwood forests) with my favorite parts about staying in a hotel (like upscale amenities and deluxe beds). Just like camping though, glamping isn’t for everyone, but if you love the idea of camping without the gear and vacationing closer to nature, then AutoCamp Russian River might just be for you. – Design Milk

Located in Guerneville, California, a night in an Airstream will set you back about $225. Or you can opt for a stay in one of the luxury tents at just $139 per night. It’s perfectly located, actually, near state parks, and close to the ocean. There’s also loads of local restaurants and cafes nearby.

San Francisco-based Geremia Design curated the interiors of AutoCamp’s Russian River property, which has 25 custom Airstream trailers and 10 luxury tents available for reservation. Like camping, these airstreams and tents aren’t decorated and furnished with excess, so that you can enjoy what’s right outside your door. Modern amenities include Malin+Goetz products, plush robes, light fixtures by Schoolhouse Electric, Casper beds, and deluxe Coyuchi linen beddings.- Design Milk
