Top 5 Best Glamping Spots to Visit in California, USA

You are interested in going for a fantastic vacation but still want to keep yourself socially distanced due to Covid-19. It might be that you are a true camper that is ready to recover from the previous rough year. Whatever the case might be, 2021 is your year to go glamping.

You may have been wondering what the term ‘glamping’ actually means. Well, you guessed right if you think it means glamorous camping because that is what it means. Embark on your standard camping trip where you will enjoy the peace of nature, fresh air, meet a few people, and view the bright stars in the clear skies. Now, take away the clumsiness of entering the shared shower facility with your toothbrush, the stiffness of the sleeping bag that has not been touched for over a year, and the frustration of pitching a tent. Then, replace them with a kitchenette, a heater, a person cleaning the marshmallow skewers, a hot shower, and a full bed. This is what glamping looks like.

With an overabundance of natural splendor, California has proven to be a paradise for glampers. Below are some of the best glamping spots that are in California, USA.
