Glamping Trend

At Natural Springs Resort, we love helping families and visitors feel like they are connecting with nature and each other. Sometimes, however, our guests don’t want to rustic tent camp, sleep on the ground or fumble with primitive life on a vacation. That is why we are so happy to offer “glamping” at our resort. Glamping refers to the idea of camping and being in the beauty and serenity of nature with the added bonus of many of the comforts of home. It just so happens that this trend is becoming increasingly popular among people of all ages and backgrounds. Glamping Trend As with every trend, glamping and luxury camping can be extremely versatile, depending on what the campers want and need. Some resorts and vacation hot spots have taken it to the extreme, providing visitors with truly marvelous yurts, fashionable tipis and over-the-top luxury caravans.

Favorite Camping Hacks for a Stress-Free Summer

Camping is a great past-time. Spending time immersed in nature with friends or family, slowing down and enjoying scenery, hiking, swimming and fishing are all reasons that people love to get outside and pitch a tent during the summer and even into the fall. However, some of the downsides to camping include the challenges of living a more primitive lifestyle, even if it is only for a short time. We have gathered some of our favorite camping hacks to keep the challenges to a minimum, leaving more time for rest, relaxation, and enjoyment of natural surroundings! 10 Favorite Camping Hacks Use foam floor tiles to cover the floor of your tent, making it softer for sleeping and sitting. If you need an extra lantern, fill a gallon jug with water and strap a headlamp around the jug with the light pointed inward. Lint makes a great, homemade fire starter. Stuff a paper towel or toilet [...]

Return to Road Trippin’ and Family Camping Experiences

Return to Road Trippin’ and Family Camping Experiences What do you remember most from your childhood? Chances are, it isn’t video games and customized experiences like kids of today. There may, instead, be memories of family camping experiences or road trips, sandwiched between two siblings in the backseat, listening to the music on the radio and hoping the song you really love will come on next. Maybe you remember backseat car games for entertainment on the drive, talking excitedly about roasting s’mores or finding a swimming hole upon arrival. Family Road Trippin’ Nostalgia Whatever your experience of road trippin’ or family camping as a youngster, it usually invokes a feeling of nostalgia. Many families today are striving for the same for their children. Today’s generation, whose childhood is much more centered around technology and peer groups, can really benefit from a few days of slow living, less screen time, and fun together as a family [...]
