Luxury Airstream glamping is coming to Yosemite in 2019. For obvious reasons, hotel companies aren’t allowed to construct high-end resorts inside National Parks. That doesn’t mean, though, there aren’t people champing at the bit to stay luxuriously while visiting one of America’s best ideas. I get it; sometimes you just don’t want to futz with stringing up a pup tent.
Enter startup AutoCamp. It’s bringing glamping to some of the country’s most scenic places, including Santa Barbara and the Russian River Valley in Sonoma, California.
In February, 2019, AutoCamp is adding a third spot to its list: Yosemite National Park.
If we’re being completely honest, it’s not in Yosemite. However, the company’s 35-acre glamping plot is awfully close to the park. And AutoCamp will be running daily shuttles from their site over to Yosemite National Park.
When on property, though, AutoCamp guests will be privy to more than one of the 80 onsite Airstream trailers. The campus also boasts a 4,000-square-foot clubhouse designed by the Anacapa architecture firm. This super-fashionable and highly stylized Yosemite homebase will be complete with reception, rooftop deck, outdoor swimming pool, fire pits, and a marketplace offering, as AutoCamp puts it, “artisanal food and beverages.”
If crashing in a camper isn’t your cup of tea, you can also book a one of 15 luxury tents or one of three cabin suites. Nightly prices start at $225 for the Airstream and luxury tents. The Yosemite booking portal is live now, taking reservations for 2019.
