Incorporating some glamor into your camping can be highly enjoyable. You get to appreciate everything nature offers while still relishing in some luxuries. Because you plan to combine the great outdoors with your lifestyle, you need to find a way to mix the two together well. Check out these four ways to prepare for your glamping trip.
Find the Right Campsite
Research your spot first—thoroughly research it. Make sure the location accommodates all your needs so that you can get the best out of your trip. You want a location that offers the perfect dose of nature and won’t prohibit you from bringing a few luxuries.
Some of the best nature spots are in and around mountains, such as the Sierra. You can go for traditional camping with tents or book a vacation rental space. You’ll be close to stunning outdoor scenery without having to sleep on the ground if you choose the latter option. Spending then nights in a glamping rental will help create a successful trip.

Rent a Mode of Transportation
Don’t pack everyone into your car or even try and drive separately for a group glamping trip. It’s best if you all rent one multi-passenger vehicle, such as a spacious van. This way, everyone can travel together safely. Find one that can fit your entire crew, their luggage, and any other materials you’ll need for your trip.
Having one spacious vehicle also makes it easy whenever you all want to wander farther away from the campsite. Your campsite might be far from the rest of the attraction sites, and the van can transport you all there. Once you arrive at your desired location, you can walk around in the great outdoors.
Handle Your Devices
What’s glamping without entertainment? You still need a connection to your devices while you enjoy the campgrounds. Make sure you charge all your devices and download any books, shows, or movies you might want to watch while you’re away.
Wi-fi might be scarce in your location, and you don’t want to rely on that spinning wheel to load up whatever it is you need. Download your things in advance so that you don’t have to struggle when you get there.
Make a Meal Plan
Because you’ve decided to go glamping instead of camping, it’s safe to say you don’t plan to hunt and hike for your food. The best for you to do is meal prep. Create a menu before your trip. You can keep breakfast and lunch simple and not eat too heavy, then put more focus on dinner plans.
Prepare everything you need at home and bring it along with you. There might not be a grocery store close to you, so take the time to go shopping beforehand. Freeze any meals you can overnight and pack them in a cooler for your trip.
When you arrive at your campsite, you can unload everything. Cooking and preparing your food in advance gives you time to better enjoy your trip too. Also, make sure you pack plenty of non-perishable snacks. Being outside all day can take a lot out of you, and you need to keep your energy up. Pack plenty of grain and protein.
