Traditional camping is great, but if you’ve ever wanted to add a little luxury – a little glam – to your rugged backcountry experience, Idaho has got you covered…literally. Whether sleeping on a rocky tent pad or struggling to stay warm during Idaho’s chilly summer nights isn’t your idea of fun, or you’re just looking for a more romantic getaway, these “glampgrounds” offer queen-sized beds, wifi, heated rooms, and extra amenities to transform an ordinary wilderness trip into something, well, a little more first class. Check it out!
1. River Dance Lodge, Kooskia
Nestled near the Clearwater River, Riverdance offers glamping tents with luxurious pillow top beds, a wood stove, and antique clawfoot bathtubs.
2. Wagonhammer, North Fork
This pet-friendly RV park just north of Salmon has some excellent views, but for adventurous campers, the
best way to experience Idaho's beauty up close and personal is with a stay in a teepee. More glamorous and scenic than a traditional tent, these rustic sleeping quarters will offer you a scenic experience like no other.
3. Huckleberry Tent and Breakfast, Clark Fork
Here, in the relaxing atmosphere of Northern Idaho, you'll have the opportunity to camp in the middle of Clark Fork's most secluded scenery while enjoying the lush comforts of a bed and breakfast every morning. A rustic porch offers the ideal place to enjoy the crispness of Idaho's mornings, and the outdoor shower...well, it's awesome, to say the least!
4. Working Horse Ranch, Cascade
Normally, we wouldn't include cabins on a list of glamping locations, but these quaint pioneer cabins in Cascade simply can't be overlooked as each one is unique and built in a rustic, reclaimed style that mimics the Old West. Situated in a meadow that offers unrivaled star-gazing views, you can sit back and enjoy the privacy of a cabin with all the roughing it charm of camping.
5. Far and Away Adventures, Salmon River
This guided adventure will offer a one-of-a-kind luxury camping and fishing trip. While your tent will be, you know, just a tent, you will be served impeccable cuisine and drinks along the scenic banks of the rushing Salmon River. A hot shower? Done. Bourbon on the rocks? You got it.
6. Stargazer Yurt, Idaho City
Idaho offers dozens of scenic yurts (Stargaze included) and Idaho City is a hub for those looking for a rugged stay - even during the warm season. For rustic luxury and prime access to the best hiking trails, every yurt offers its own unique setting and luxuries...some even have their own personal hot tubs.
7. Moose Creek, Victor
Situated near the Tetons, you know you're going to wake up every day to a stunning panoramic mountain view. Moose Creek Ranch allows you to take that ambiance to the next level by offering glamping tents furnished with queen-sized beds, plus shaded porches. And for those who don't feel like roughing it over a fire pit, Victor just happens to be a small-town foodie's dream when it comes to cuisine.
8. Mary Janes Farm, Moscow
Idaho's original and most luxurious glamping experience can be found at Mary Janes. Uber plush beds, country-chic decor, and just a touch of glam make this cozy farm a must-stay. While Mary Janes isn't taking reservations this year, keep your eye out!
Imagine waking up to an Idaho sunrise from a plush, cozy bed – how incredible! Have you ever gone glamping? What did you think?
