Glamping in Yosemite National Park


Camping around the Yosemite National Park is a favourite for many. You get to be closer to nature and spend a day or two slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the city. But sometimes, “glamping” (glamorous camping) is how some would like to get closer to nature.

You can now go on a ultra-hip and Instagramable outing with AutoCamp Yosemite. AutoCamp is known for spearheading alternative outdoor accommodation and has recently announced that Yosemite National Park would be its newest location for the company’s camping-meets-boutique-hotel campsite.

The site is tucked into 35 acres of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and will feature 15 luxury tents, three cabin suites and 80 deluxe Airstream trailers. Each trailer is perfectly tailored to mirror the classic and sleek design of the Airstream but with a modern twist that suits the aesthetic social media obsession.

The Airstreams are fitted with large windows, letting in plenty of sunlight into the airstream. The fully furnished trailers are also equipped with a plush white bed, which might be the closest thing you’ll get to sleeping on a cloud, and a tiled shower with bath products for you to wash away the dirt and grime from a day of exploring nature.

It wouldn’t be a ‘camping-meets-boutique-hotel campsite’ without the respective hotel amenities. AutoCamp Yosemite will feature a 4,000-square-foot clubhouse, with meeting spaces, a curated shop that offers artisanal food and beverages and a rooftop deck perfect for stargazing.

Apart from the hiking trails that surround the campsite, there is also a pool, hot tub and a freshwater pond for you to take a dip in and relax. Guests can hop onto an on-site shuttle to get a quick and easy access to the national park. If you want to take a break from the wilderness, the nearby town of Mariposa houses an array of restaurants, cafes and even a few breweries.

AutoCamp Yosemite is now taking in reservations for 2019 with nightly rates of $225 for the luxury tents and Airstreams.
