Glamping essential must–haves for your next outdoor adventure.

Glamping Campsite


 [Updated] Glamping - A camping alternative for the most glamorous and novice camper. As a recent trend in camping, many may have first heard the word while watching an episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County. 

Housewife Heather Dubrow quickly coined the phrase on last season's episode by showing what consisted of a glamping trip. Packing a bottle of “champs” (champagne) and her most stylish outdoor attire, she helped viewers to quickly understand that this was no ordinary camping experience. For those new to glamping, it's important to understand that when it comes to this type of camping,  it's not just about the destination, but rather the accessories. Before deciding on your next outdoor adventure, check out our list of this summer's must–have glamping essentials.
