Keystone, South Dakota
Opening May 24, 2018 in the Black Hills of South Dakota on the outskirts of an original gold mining settlement,features three different styles of glamping tents. From safari style tents with king-size beds and wood-burning stoves to suite tents that are large enough to fit a separate lounge area with a queen-size leather sleeper sofa, you could travel here alone, with a few of your best girlfriends, or your entire family.
There are also Under Canvas glamping retreats in Zion, Moab, Yellowstone, Glacier, the Great Smoky Mountains and the Grand Canyon.
While guests can also stay in the main lodge, a luxury cabin or a tipi at this resort located on the edge of Capitol Reef National Park, our pick would be the Conestoga wagons they’ve outfitted with king beds and two sets of twin bunks. Even though the wagons are based on 19th century designs, you won’t exactly be roughing it like a pioneer, considering they’re all air conditioned and have private bathrooms just a few steps away.
While the ghost town-turned luxury resort of Dunton Hot Springs does have one all-season tent made from reclaimed materials from the 1830s, in the summer you can stay at one of the eight glamping tents about five miles down the road atthat all feature king beds, gas stoves and en suite bathrooms with soaking tubs.
Each of the 16 glamping tents at Sandy Pines have all been individually decorated by New England designers. But if you’re looking for an even more unique experience, Sandy Pines also offers miniature A-Frame huts and Camp Carriages (which are more commonly referred to as Shepherd’s Huts).
The glamping “tents” are more of a hybrid cabin-tent combination at The Ranch at Rock Creek, a five-star dude ranch in western Montana. For example, the 1,300-square-foot Sweet Grass Cabin has a cabin living room at its center and two canvas tent bedrooms attached to it along with two full baths (yes, really).
