3 Reasons to Go Glamping in the Smokies

If you’re traveling to the Smokies soon, you’ll want to spend some time enjoying all the natural beauty of the area. We also know you’ll want to stay somewhere that offers all the luxuries of home. Luckily for you, there are tons of glamping opportunities that will give you the best of both worlds. Here are 3 reasons to go glamping in the Smokies:

1. You’ll Always Be Comfortable

If you’re not too eager to sleep on the ground or in a tent, then you’ll love the amenities that come along with glamping in the Smokies. Indoor plumbing, central A/C and more will provide some relief from the elements if you’re not ready for a fully immersive experience into the Smoky Mountains. You’ll also get to enjoy being close to all your group members, as many of the glamping options come with enough room for everyone. If you’d rather not split up into individual tents, this is the perfect lodging option for you!

2. It’s a Unique Experience

You’ll have a hard time ever mimicking the experience of glamping in the Smokies! It’s hard to find lodging that gives you immediate access to the beautiful sights and sounds of nature, while also providing you with a 5 star experience. You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for location when you glamp. Sleep under the trees and Appalachian stars, all from your comfortable bed! For those who love the outdoors but aren’t crazy for the accommodations of camping, this is definitely the best option for you. You’ll still be able to enjoy your morning coffee surrounded by nature, but you won’t have to make it over a campfire. However, if you are craving some smores, a campfire can be arranged.

3. You’ll Still Be Surrounded by Nature

With the Smokies on all sides of you, glamping can definitely fulfill this need. Explore the area as much as you want, and take some time to let nature rejuvenate you. Vacation is for relaxation, so you need to take some time to kick your feet up and spend some one-on-one time with all the Smokies have to offer. Listen to the birds and crickets or the breeze through the trees. Spend your evenings watching the fireflies light up the woods or find star constellations on clear nights. You will leave feeling refreshed and thankful you spent your week in seclusion.
