Unique Glamping Spots In Texas
Whether it’s a safari tent, yurt, treehouse, Conestoga wagon, or a unique luxury cabin, you’ll find several glamping spots throughout the Lone Star State to choose from that are completely away from everyone in serene areas with endless adventures to explore. I’m sure a few on this list are just perfect for you and whoever you decide to bring along. Best of all, you’ll be able to try something new if you’re new to glamping. I’m hooked on this way of camping …with amenities, of course!
I have come across many different styles of glamping, including luxury ones. I prefer the luxury of home or better; these below are fun and kid-friendly. And probably cheaper than the luxury ones.
Paradise Cove On Grapevine Lake
Experience lakeside glamping on Lake Grapevine in a yurt at Paradise Cove. The yurt comes with air conditioning and heat, a mini-fridge, a microwave, a comfortable bed, and a private bathroom with a shower steps away from the yurt. Yes, the bathroom is outside of the yurt.
It’s a quiet spot on a private peninsula on Lake Grapevine. Don’t bother using your phone’s alarm if you need an early morning wake-up call; the nearby roosters will do that for you! At least they did for me. What I liked about this stay is that the lake is right there. If you have your own kayak, it’s a perfect place to get in the water and go.
Silver Spur Resort, Canton
For a fun experience, glamp in a Conestoga Wagon. Silver Spur Resort is a resort for RVers, campers, and glampers located an hour east of Dallas and minutes away from Canton’s First Monday Trade Days.
The Conestoga wagons are climate-controlled and include a nice comfy king-size bed, bunk beds, and a small table. It’s the perfect size for a family of four or six. There are stairs to climb up to the wagons, and the restrooms and showers are a few steps away and are only available to Conestoga guests.
Each site has an outdoor grill and a common area to roast hot dogs and s’mores. There is a smokehouse-style restaurant on site for those nights you don’t feel like grilling.
Since I was there, they have added treehouses. So, don’t forget to check those out on the website.
Travel Tip: Bring a flashlight for those late-night trips to the restroom. No pets are allowed in the wagons.
Geronimo Creek Retreat, Sequin
Kelly and her family spent some time at the Geronimo Creek Retreat and couldn’t say enough good things about it. I can see how a family would enjoy this place. There are lots of outdoor activities, including swimming and kayaking. All sites are insulated and temperature controlled. Some cabins and teepees have private detached bathrooms, while the more luxurious ones have bathrooms inside.
Best Day Ever Ranch, Whitewright
Would you glamp up in a tree? Or how about taking a shower outdoors? Sure you would! If this sounds good, you may want to check out Best Day Ever Ranch in North Texas, about an hour’s drive north of Dallas.
You’ll find a cozy treehouse that sleeps two with luxurious romantic amenities and a bathtub by the window you’ll want to spend a long time soaking. It’s located on the ranch in a perfectly hidden area. There are steep stairs that lead up to it. Some cabins have an outdoor shower (also an indoor shower), but there are steep stairs inside the place that leads up to a loft. You may want to ask if other cabins do not have stairs.
All renters are welcome to all ranch activities, including the clubhouse with games, acres of hiking, fishing in the nearby pond, even a golf cart to roam around in, and more. We had a blast tooling around the ranch and going to the pond on that golf cart.
Nutty Camp Jefferson, Jefferson
How about indoor glamping? Yep, three tents with two beds on hardwood floors in downtown Jefferson. Only one bath, though!! If you don’t mind sharing a bathroom with five others, grab your girlfriends and share the $160 a night fee!! You can all go shopping and have a great town in charming Jefferson, Texas. Nutty Camp Jefferson on Airbnb.
Luxury Glamping In Texas
It’s better than a home away from home with luxury linens, gorgeous decor, king-sized beds, modern amenities, and clawfoot tubs! Below are luxury glamping sites in Texas.
Yurtopia Remote Hilltop Yurts, Wimberley
Adult-only property. Plus, no pets. I wanted to get that out right away because I know plenty of people who love for their pets to come along. There are two stunning styles of glamping here – both with modern amenities. I have not been here, but after seeing it all, I hope to check them out next time I’m in the Texas Hill Country.
So, you have to decide if you want everything to yourself or most everything, but you’ll share common areas with other glampers. Take a look at Yurtopia Remote Hilltop Glamping and decide for yourself. Plus, Wimberley is a quaint town that you’ll fall in love with repeatedly. It’s a good thing because there are more glamping sites there. See below.
Collective Hill Country, Wimberley
At Collective Hill Country, the outdoor space is so luxurious, on top of a ridge overlooking the scenic Texas Hill Country. Oh, but don’t worry, their resort is high-tech, and the tents are very luxurious with gorgeous decor. Oh my goodness, you can have breakfast sent to you here.
Sinya On Lone Man Creek – Wimberley
I think I found my favorite outdoor space – a cascading waterfall! Indoor amenities are galore here, including a king bed with comforters, goose-down pillows, a clawfoot tub, Turkish towels, a loaded kitchen, etc. You won’t even know you’re out in nowhere’s land. Sinya On Lone Man Creek is a place to check out and one of my favorite unique glamping spots in Texas.
Walden Retreats, Johnson City
Just outside the quaint town of Johnson City in the Hill Country is Walden Retreats, which is a premium glamping getaway. This is a reopening for them with a complete renovation. The 96-acre property features seven suites, eight studios, an event pavilion, and a welcoming lobby featuring a curated general store. These 15 fully-enclosed safari-style canvas tents combine the amenities of a luxury hotel with the adventure of camping outdoors.
WOW – just wow. Can you imagine how many wineries are around there—lots? Or, of course, you can bring your own, which that’s probably a good idea. Who would want to leave?
Green Acres, Elgin (near San Antonio)
At Green Acres, you’ll have your choice of spots to rent, such as yurts with organic bedding or an airstream, a family barn, and more. Even though the yurts don’t have an inside bathroom, I’m still calling these luxuries. I’d be there in a flash! Just bring a flashlight! The other glamping sites have luxurious bathrooms.
Wahwahtaysee Resort, Kingsbury (near Austin)
Can you handle luxury lodging in a two-bedroom luxury tent with a river view? There are also one-bedroom luxury tents as well. All tents have premium amenities with lots of natural lighting. Wahwahtaysee Resort, with the river in view, can also enjoy hiking, pecan picking in the orchard, and exploring the private beaches on the San Marcos River. Located only an hour south of Austin and 1-hour northeast of San Antonio makes, this place a fantastic getaway from both cities. I think I could live in one of these.
El Cosmico – Marfa
Check out these unique experiences in unique places. There are plenty of glamping style pickings to choose from here. Choose your favorite and have a groovy time out in nature. Anytime an eyeball stares at you, you know there’s something unique going on. Check out El Cosmico, and I bet it will take you back to the 60s.
The Liney Moon, Dripping Springs
I consider glamping as sleeping in yurts, luxury safari tents, bell tents, or even in a vintage airstream, something along those lines, but The Liney Moon made my list here because it’s so darn sweet and unique! They are not tents, but not a hotel either, although it’s called a hotel – to me, they are the cutest buildings I think I’ve ever seen. Pets are welcome here!
