Glamping in Maine

Do you want to get outside into nature while maintaining modern amenities?

Campgrounds in Maine are no stranger to the Glamping experience.


Glamping may be just the experience for you. Glamping is widely available across the state of Maine in many different forms. Is Glamping too glamorous a word for you? No worries, Maine offers many rental units in a campground setting.

The word “Glamping” was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2016. Defined as a noun: A form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping.

Traditionally we have offered rental units of varying types. The word Glamping is new along with the trend. We have long embraced rental units that do not involve sleeping in a tent on the ground or owning an RV.

Each year demand for rentals is increasing, allowing the industry to provide a quality environment for the family to enjoy the outdoors. Families are realizing the value these rentals have and how they enhance the outdoor experience. It is also becoming popular for the individual that has to be away on business for a few days and wishes for an alternative to the motel experience.

Campgrounds in Maine offer a variety of rentals including camper trailers onsite, tents on platforms, deluxe cabins and park models of varying sizes, lakeside houses, basic cabins and yurts.

When is the last time you checked into a motel, had a nice campfire, cooked marshmallows and looked up to see the twinkling stars in our vast sky before retiring for the evening? Campgrounds in Maine offer it all, come relax and enjoy our variety of rentals available. Continue on to explore your alternatives to a hotel room and partake in the camping experience.

There is a type of rental for everyone at our campgrounds in Maine.
