In some ways, the thought of camping is romantic – getting close to nature, falling asleep under a starry sky, and roughing it like our forefathers. However, not all of us like sleeping on the cold, hard ground, dealing with pesky bugs as we try to sleep, and worrying that the rain will suddenly crash down on us. Glamping allows us to enjoy all the beauty of nature with more of the amenities of home. That’s what you’ll find when you check into these five yurt campgrounds in Pennsylvania.
