In 2023, 67 percent of campers say they will go glamping, according to recent data from Kampgrounds of America, which bills itself as “the world’s largest system of open-to-the-public campgrounds.”
When you book a stay at one of these 17 glamping spots near New York City, you will find luxury bedding, gourmet meals and Wi-Fi just to start. And while you might expect a cute tent setup in an open field for glamping, for a more one-of-a-kind experience many locations offer unique options ranging from treehouse glamping and safari-style canvas tents to waterfront beach cabins and even train cabooses. Accessible at every budget, they come in a variety of different locations, from pristine nature settings to spots that are just a stone’s throw from small, charming country towns with serious eats.
