The Resort at Paws Up, nightly rates from $885
“Give an unforgettable glamping experience at Paws Up in Greenough, MT. Guests can go fly fishing, horseback riding and hot air ballooning before hitting the spa tent for a massage and retiring to their tent (with heated floors and electricity). Wilderness lovers and those who don't consider a vacation a vacation without certain creature comforts (think: gourmet meals), will both be pleased.” – Sara Gilliam, Senior Interactive Producer at Travel Channel

For some, camping may not sound like fun at all. But glamping? Sign me up.
Basically, glamping is a camping trip that’s elevated with more stylish and elegant accessories. Glamping trips make for a super fun getaway with your best friends or S.O. this summer, and we want to make sure you know exactly what you should bring on your trip.
Check out all of our favorite picks for your next glamping trip, no matter where you're headed.

Bring along an Instax camera and use it to document your whole glamping adventure. Make copies when you get home, and give all your guests a little book to remember your special trip.
9: Wide-Brimmed Floppy Hat
This doesn’t excuse you from slathering on the sunblock, but this wide-brimmed hat will definitely help keep your face protected.
10: Camping Lantern with Fan
