Maine is a great place to get in touch with nature and just spend time outdoors. Though not all of us like to rough it there are still plenty of options when wanting to check Maine glamping off your bucket list!

Not all of us love the great outdoors, and not all of us love sleeping in it. Glamourous Camping, aka Glamping, has become a trend over the last few years for those who want to get in touch with their internal nature lover but also want a little more luxury than a sleeping bag and tent. Maine is a great place for a glamping adventure with its rocky coastlines and fantastic mountain views.

Options For Glamping in Maine

Yurts are a popular Maine glamping option and a personal favorite since these structures have the feel of a tent without all the bugs and dirt. These circular, tent-like structures are typically made of canvas or other durable materials and are often equipped with comfortable beds, heating or cooling systems, and other amenities to provide a homey camping experience. There are even yurt villages like Maine Forest Yurts in Durham outside of Bradbury Mountain State Park.

There are plenty of options for those looking for a non-traditional camping experience. From treehouses, geo domes, tiny houses, tipis or wood and canvas tents like you will find in Huttopia that even have their own bathrooms, there is something for even the most timid camper. At many of these glamping grounds you will also find outdoor hot tubs, fire pits, and access to hiking trails to enhance the camping experience.

You may be looking for something with the feel of camping but with the amenities of a more traditional house. There are plenty of campgrounds in Maine that offer cabin rentals, and in parks Sandy Pines Campground, you even can choose from airstream campers and Conestoga wagons! Cabins are often equipped with most of what you would have at home, including kitchen and bathrooms, as well as comfortable furnishings and the quiet serenity you would expect when returning to nature. 

No matter which option you choose for your Maine Glamping trip, you’re sure to have a memorable and comfortable outdoor adventure.
